Feel good routines or luxuries has taken on a double meaning thee days. It’s important to stay healthy, get sleep, eat healthy, and still get some exercise in. But the kind of feel good we’re talking about has more to do with our mental health.
We’re talking about the little, luxurious things that can give you a much-needed dopamine hit during the weird times we’re living in. For me, the days are filled with work, cooking, and cleaning in a nonstop cycle. One thing that’s making the cooking part a little more fun? Alison Roman’s new cookbook, Nothing Fancy, which is full of interesting, delicious recipes written in an accessible and fun way.
While you’re whipping up a gourmet meal in the kitchen, set your table with some beautiful candleholders to make things feel special. We love these gold ones from CB2. If scented candles are more your speed, you can’t go wrong with a Cire Trudon candle which is my absolute favorite. Or Le Labo’s iconic Santal scent.
Maybe you’ve been doing your at-home pilates or Zumba classes and you’re feeling a little sore. Massage your newly strengthened muscles with a Hypervolt, which I’ve been using ever since I had my knee replaced last year.
Make your time indoors as cozy as possible and indulge in some cashmere to class up your sweats. Cuyana’s recycled cashmere wrap sweater is perfect for lounging. Jenni Kayne’s fisherman wrap coat is totally worth splurging on. And this pretty pink shawl can keep you company the next time you’re curled up on the couch and can’t find the blanket.
Finally, get yourself a protective crystal. It might sound silly, but I think of it as a reminder to stay positive.
