When it comes to working from home, creating healthy boundaries can be difficult. We hold energy in the spaces we inhabit – what does that mean? If you work from bed you may have trouble falling asleep. If your home office is cluttered, you may have trouble thinking clearly. The way we set up our lives has a direct effect on our mental health, so it’s key to create spaces that make you feel good. Whether that means inviting more light in or playing around with scents, you’ll be pleased to see how productive you can be when you enjoy where you are.
Awaken your senses
You might start the day ready to take it on, but by mid-day you may begin to feel a little stale. Some people take this time to grab another coffee or something sweet, but misting your face and hair with a little chilled Rosewater Facial Mist can do wonders – it brings you closer to nature while hydrating and uplifting your skin and mood.
Everything has energy and holds vibrations, which when placed around you can bring you into alignment as well. Some people believe certain crystals are good for good energy and focus—clear quartz, black tourmaline, and citrine are just a few. Choosing a few plants for your office as well increases the oxygen in the room and can really brighten up a space.
Spritz away negativity
No one wants to smell yesterday’s lunch or feel the energy from that too-long meeting. Our Aura Smudge Smokeless Sage is a smoke-free alternative to a smudge stick – mist your space in the morning to start out fresh and at the end of the day to wind down.
Invite in light
We all know the benefits of Vitamin D and how sunlight can positively affect your mood – position your desk next to a window or choose breezy curtains to evoke the feeling or being outside as much as possible. Invest in a sun lamp in the winter!
Open your heart
Scheduled breaks in your day can really help your brain rest and reset – why not use that time for some self-care? Relax your jaw, take measured breaths that start in your stomach, and massage your palms and neck with our Rose Oil. Rose is said to help open up the heart chakra, which will open you up to new opportunities.
Set an intention
There are so many gorgeous tarot card decks available now, and can be a beautiful practice to help you set an intention for the day. Spritz your sage mist, light a candle, and pull one card – what each card represents could help you align your mind for what you have in store.
