Reclaim Your Rest: The Home Rituals Gift Guide

Reclaim Your Rest: The Home Rituals Gift Guide

There’s no doubt that this year has challenged us and we’ve all felt the impact of quarantine but there has been a collective shift recently away from the negativity and fear towards happiness and healing. For me, the silver lining has been the time its offered so many of us for self-exploration as we all try to find meaning in this moment. I’m incredibly grateful for the many lessons this year has taught me and continues to.

One of those lessons is taking better care of my emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health by setting clear boundaries to protect them and new rituals to enhance and develop them. Rituals are so powerful. They can open up portals to hidden spaces within us, helping us to expand, exhale, and renew from the inside out. It’s also an opportunity to revel in some repetition. Those anticipatory moments bring us immense joy because we look forward to them each day—we relish and savor that precious time we set aside just for us.

So, it’s time to reclaim our rest, set our intentions, and tap into our intuition and it all starts with the space around you. So, what better gift this holiday season than the gift of ritual. Those sensory moments of scent, sight, and sound will transport your friend or loved one to their own space in time that’s just for them.

Read on for our favorite pieces to create your own home ritual and give the gift of Zen this season.
