Three Ingredients for a Healthy Home
It's the beginning of 2020 and we're all simultaneously feeling as it the last year has flown by, and like last New Year was such a long time ago. And on January 1st we all woke up with the very best of intentions and an iron will. For many of us, of course, such stern determination usually turns into gluttony and laziness before the day is out, meaning that all our fancy resolutions go frankly unheard and unfulfilled. It is a hard message to take, but most of us just aren't passionate enough to make our intentions transform into reality. I know that I personally have spent a number of years glibly resolving to "become a better person". Sure no one can measure it, but if I don't hate myself by the time the year is out then I can happily pretend that I kept to my aims! New Years resolutions aside, this is a time of change and new beginnings. The human race loves nothing more than a good symbolic renewal - I am sure we could take this back to past times and ceremonies, something to break up the dark of winter and convince us to change our lives and better ourselves. You may well think this is boring and clichéd - but if you are one of those people who loves the idea of cleaning up and repairing your life in the first month of the year then here are some vital ingredients for a happy healthy home! Polyfilla Yup, if you are going to patch things up then this branded filler is definitely going to be top of the symbolic list of change! As well as taking the time around new year to actually do those DIY jobs that have been mocking you, this is the best time to get off your ass and fix the holes in relationships and to patch up anything where cracks are starting to appear. Don't cover it up - pull your finger out and make the effort to actually fix it or choose to leave it behind in another life. Smoothie Maker We all know that this kitchen implement will most likely never get used. Or, alternatively, proud new owners will go on a smoothie rampage, blitzing any fruit or veg that dares to stand in their way, and boasting proudly about clearer skin and increased energy as they do so. Whether you use it or not, this is one of the things that has the potential to make you feel better about yourself - and actually happier. Now, drink that wheat grass juice down and jump on the treadmill! source Foot Spa OK, everyone is aware that a foot spa, generally a leftover Christmas present, will always end up on the car boot pile or own at the local charity shop. But the idea is a sound one, and if New Year for you is all about emotional development than looking after number 1 simply has to be part of the plan. A foot spa may be a huge waste of money, but having some time out to rest and recuperate is a great idea, especially if it involves bubbly both soapy and drinkable whilst in a deep hot bath! So if you do decide to makes some resolutions, why not try to keep them. I don't mean go wild and try to change yourself in half a day, but simply make little changes to make you and your home as happy as possible. Or, alternatively, carry on as your always have - I'm sure the world won't end because of it!

Self care
Self Care Activities When it comes to self care activities, there are different needs that we can work to meet. Physical self-care Physical self-care might include activities like exercise or eating well. Emotional self-care Emotional self-care includes taking time for your emotions, or doing pleasurable activities. Spiritual self-care Spiritual self-care will be different depending on your spiritual beliefs but might include mediation, going to church, or praying. Mental self-care Mental self-care can be activities that are mentally stimulating such as playing a game, or ones that allow you to take care of your mental state such as journaling or practicing kindness to yourself. Practical self-care Practical self-care is typically about your life and what you need to do in a more logistical or practical sense, such as working on decluttering or tackling something on your to-do list. Yes, this can be self-care also. Social self-care Social self-care uses friends and others to help take care of yourself. This would be engaging in activities that include others or allow you to be social. You can look at self-care and make sure that you take care of body, mind, and spirit. All of these parts of you likely need attention and care to help you feel complete. As you look at the list of self-care activities, some of the ideas might not be realistic because of where you live (for example, you might not be able to walk on the beach because you don’t live near one), but perhaps you can walk in the forest. Or, the activity might not be practical because of the time of year: you can’t always jump in puddles, or a hike may be unrealistic for you if it’s Winter and snowing.
