How to Recharge This Winter With a Self-Care Routine Incorporating Indoor Plant Care
Winter is the ideal time of the year to relax and rejuvenate, The cold and chilly weather can make anyone feel gloomy so it’s essential to have a positive mindset and practice self-care routines that could assist you with recharging through the winter.
Taking care of ones self is vital in the journey to personal happiness and well-being, and at Darcey Flowers, our purpose is to bring joy to the world, and what best way to do that is by starting with ourselves and our individual inner joy.
1. Create a comforting space
Diverting any energies from your space can help anyone mentally, bringing in more light or a vibrant color can help enhance a space. Due to winter’s limited sunshine, we do tend to retreat to the comforts of our homes, by planning and de-cluttering your home to create a cozier setting to suit wintertime is a great way to help you regenerate. Adding exotic foliage from our plant collection is an alternative option.
2. Warm beverages
In this modern digital age, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the information we consume on a daily basis. Taking time out each day is vital for any person’s well-being. What better way to stop and pause and clear the mind over a hot cup of tea on a cold winter’s evening to reflect and unwind?
Studies in 2009 by the University of Sussex have shown that reading helps with reducing stress levels by 68 percent, making it more efficient than listening to music, going for a walk, or even drinking a cup of tea. Reading can even relax your body by lowering your heart rate and easing the tension in your muscles.
The OG self-care routine is to mentally give your mind a break, which is an age-old tradition that dates back to 1500 BCE. Throughout history, we have learned time and time again the benefits of meditation. From improving self-awareness and self-discovery to enhancing gratitude and increasing emotional intelligence.
5. Plant care
Plant care and self-care can both be one and the same, taking care of plants and helping them thrive are great ways to find purpose and meaning. During the gloomy months of winter staying indoors becomes essential, and spending those times attentive to your plants can become very full filling.
We hope this winter you consider this time for a spiritual transformation that will help you re-charge when spring arrives! Browse a few of our Darcey Flower indoor plant collection and start your winter self care routine.
