Ways To Show Yourself More Love

It is the month of love and we are firm believers in self-love and self-care. Both go hand in hand to creating a happier and healthier life. It can be easy to get caught up in the hustle and grind of everyday life, but it is also important that we make sure to take the time to fill our own cups so that we can continue to show up as our best selves. Setting aside time for ourselves in our busy schedules can go a long way in helping to upkeep our mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Keep reading for three easy ways to incorporate more self-care in your life.

Buy Yourself Flowers

Be your own secret admirer and buy yourself a beautiful bouquet of flowers.  While you're at it, get a box of your favorite chocolates! You don't need to have a significant other in your life to splurge on something small, especially if it is something that brings you joy just by looking at it. Fresh florals can brighten up any space and in turn lift the spirits and make us feel more relaxed whenever we see them. This simple gesture for yourself can do big things like bring about a smile and lighten your mood.

The Modern Arch Vase is a fun piece to style flower arrangements in, especially on Valentine's Day.  It has cheerful red and purple dots along the interior base that is inspired by the popular terrazzo print so your pretty flowers can be displayed in style.

Create Your Own Corner

Carve out a corner or room to yourself to create an area that brings you joy and makes you feel instantly calm and relaxed. Use it as a space that you can use to take some time to yourself whether it's just ten minutes a day or half an hour.  The possibilities are endless of the activities that you can enjoy in this space. Some of our own favorite wellness practices include: yoga, meditation, journaling, or catching up on reading. Or keep it simple and just create a place where you can sit and relax to decompress when you come home.

Moden Boho Bedroom, Rattan Accent Chair

Add a chair like the Lunar Accent Chair to a corner in your bedroom and style it with the Two Sided Throw Pillow for extra comfort. Use the Melodie End Table as a side table so you have a place to keep your favorite things like a picture frame, a journal, a book, or a diffuser to create a relaxing environment. The space should be functional to what you intend to use it for, but also comfortable so that it draws you in every time you see it and acts as a daily reminder to prioritize rest when it is needed.

Take A Rest Day

As we grow older it always seems like our calendar fills up so quickly. Prioritize a weekend in each month or one day out of the week where you allow yourself to unplug or do an activity that makes you happy and sparks creativity. Burnout can be a serious health problem, especially if it goes unaddressed for long periods of time. It can actually lead to less productivity, lost of motivation, and feelings of self-doubt or defeat. So make sure to carve out time for yourself to rest and recharge your batteries-however that may look like for you!

The Laid Back Lap Desk is great for days when you just want to be a couch potato and catch up on your favorite TV shows while enjoying a snack.  It can also be used for days when you want to catch up on some light reading or journaling in bed.

The Crystal Clear Large Tray is perfect for slow mornings when you want to enjoy breakfast in bed or a cup of coffee or tea.  Take it up a notch and add a cute bud vase with fresh flowers to start the day off on a brighter note.
