25 Ways to Survive Your Time in Home Quarantine

Truthfully, I had something completely different planned to write about today. I often plan topics a year in advance and change things up once the day gets near. Today was supposed to be about a St. Patrick’s day mixed drink, but I wasn’t expecting that the entire world would be battling a really bad virus.

Just because we’re being asked (or in some cases told) to either work from home or isolate doesn’t mean that it has to be horrible. Considering I naturally enjoy my time at home, I’m going to share with you how this has affected me as well as some great tips to keep your mind and body (and even social life) alive. Hopefully, you’ll look back on this time as a moment you were able to grow as a person rather than wasting it just playing games or watching TV.

The Importance of Having a Sacred Space…Regardless of Your Beliefs

A sacred space can mean so many things to so many people. It can be a prayer room, an altar, a place on a shelf, or a closet. It’s a space where you can find your center and be around or reminded of what makes you happy. I haven’t really had one of these until recently. In this post I’m going to show my space, and how it happened and how you can make your own.

Why YOU NEED to Play More!

I always knew that playing was a massive part of how children learn to interact with the world around them, but I always assumed that, as an adult, playing was a waste of time. This book ‘Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination and Invigorates the Soul’ by Stuart Brown, taught me how essential it is to KEEP PLAYING even as an adult. If you’re looking to have better relationships, be more successful at work, and even possibly live longer, YOU NEED to check this book out!

What You Need to Know About Tonight’s Full Moon!

Tonight is a Full Moon! The moon has always been a mysterious part of humanity. There are so many thoughts and ideas about how it influences us. It’s symbolic of a lot of things, like sleep, our dream states, our psychology, the parts of our personality we like to hide or ignore, and it’s traditionally a time to reflect on how our month has been and what we need to let go of to proceed into a better part of our lives. It can play a huge roll in goalsetting and understanding yourself better if you know what to look for and the aim of this post is to help you understand a little bit more about the big glowing nightlight in the sky.

How To Make a Bundt Pan Birdseed Wreath

A few days ago I heard the much-welcomed sound of birds singing. For those of you who may live in warmer places, birds tend to migrate to warmer places and return in the spring. So after a few months of silence, you can imagine how nice it is to hear them again. Last year I made this wreath and the birds and squirrels LOVED it. This year, I changed up the birdseed a bit and got great results. If you would like to welcome your birds back with a nice treat just read on.

What I Learned from Going to a Salt Spa

I rarely schedule trips to the spa. The last time I had a real massage was a chair massage at the mall, and I think my tight neck muscles frustrated my masseuse. However, my recent day of indulgence taught me a lot about myself and how I view my needs.

To have the time to explore my issues with relaxing, I scheduled a full day at Santa Barbaras Salt Cave Spa. While this location is in beautiful California, I hope this post inspires you to seek a spa near you!
