5 Ways to Incorporate Luxury into your Everyday Life
1. Indulge a bit!
Take a longer walk outside and add a nice cappuccino for good measure. Utilize your breaks at work instead of “powering” through. Indulgence doesn’t have to be spa days and prime rib, sometimes it’s just taking more time to truly enjoy your everyday tasks.
2. Buy the extra thread count
Yes, yes, we know those 10.99 sheets are a great deal. However, studies have shown that bad sleep is just as harmful as lack of sleep. With this in mind, you should definitely make sure that the sleep you get is quality. A simple way to do that is to opt for quality bedding, high thread count sheets are the most common bedding luxury, but you can now experience the same soft comfort from bamboo sheets which are a fraction of the price!
3. Invest in yourself
Whether it be massage, or a paid course to cultivate your skills; investing in yourself is paramount. Not only will these things make you feel better about yourself, they are small things that can translate into better quality of life and overall health.
4. Cook a nice meal at home
I bet you thought luxury living meant 5-star restaurants and foie gras, right? Nope. Cooking at home with great locally sourced quality ingredients is healthy and indulgent. Processed foods are convenient, however, the trade-offs are not worth the convenience. Fast-food is linked to a myriad of health issues and even psychological issues. Start at your local farmer’s market to find great fresh ingredients to cook up a flavorful satisfying meal.
5. Fill your home with things that INSPIRE only
When you get home from a long day, your home should be your sanctuary. Piles of disorganized papers and clothes are not exactly and environment that facilitate peace and serenity. Take time this weekend to clear out all your items that do not inspire or bring you peace. Rearrange furniture, shampoo rugs, find a soothing essential oil to diffuse throughout your home. You’d be amazed at how these small changes can make BIG impacts on your overall quality of life.
That’s it! You’re are now on the path to the luxury life, remember to always put yourself first to ensure you provide your best to others.
