Even if it admittedly doesn't sound very convincing, a holiday at home can be just as wonderful as a holiday abroad. The question is simply what you do with it to make it as relaxing as possible for you. After all, it doesn't always have to be a flight to a 5-star hotel so that we can relax and unwind.

Wellness for the soul, gaining new strength and relaxing, this is also possible at home. Even those who cannot or do not want to go away can have a wonderful time in their own four walls. However, there are a few things you should consider so that you don't fall back into the old rut.

Holiday at home: time for you

Use this time exclusively for yourself and to do things that you already wanted to do! Treat yourself to some time out, use the time for wellness and other things that are good for your soul. Sleep as long as you want, enjoy good food, read good books or watch your favorite TV show without a guilty conscience. Everything that you feel like doing is now allowed.
You can also do sports, meditate, start an online yoga class or do other things you wanted to do but never found the time. Use this free time for it!

Holiday at home - out into nature!

No matter what the weather is like - there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes - get out into nature. You'll see how earthy a long walk in the open air can be, where you can let your thoughts wander and focus on yourself.
Have you ever heard of Waldbaden? Try it out! Waldbaden, that means nothing else than to perceive the forest with all your senses. You will enjoy the sight of the green trees, the earth and the forest floor. You can let the smells work on you and feel the bark of the trees, but also the leaves and the ground. Forest bathing is a little more than just a walk through the forest. You are literally immersed in the microcosm of the forest. This means that you consciously take your time, you stroll and stop and sit down again and again so that everything can have an effect on you. There is no talking, mobile phones are of course taboo. If the weather permits, take off your shoes and walk barefoot. Consciousness and attentiveness is the topic here.

Waldbaden is incredibly calming and grounding. After all, man is a part of nature - a fact that we unfortunately forget far too quickly in our everyday lives today.

It is even said that Waldbaden strengthens the immune system.


Time for wellness and spa


What otherwise tends to fall by the wayside in hectic everyday life, namely wellness and care, is now an absolute must. Treat yourself to an extensive bath with skin-caring, natural ingredients, a manicure of your hands, a pedicure of your feet and then apply a fragrant body lotion. Your hair might be happy about a care treatment that is long overdue - for example from Ayluna https://www.navoco.de/ayluna-haarspulung-zauberfrucht-mit-bio-granatapfel-50ml and your face can be richly nourished with a peeling or a mask. All those things for which otherwise there is simply no time should be on the programme now.
You can also spend a wellness day at home - without a whirlpool and co. Even with little things you can create your own spa in the bathroom. For example with a few candles at the edge of the bath or with a fragrant bath additive in the water.
Maybe you can sign up for a session in a massage studio near you, which will also do you good and help you to regain your strength.



Holiday at home: Detox is the order of the day


Detox, that means abandonment. Doesn't sound very tempting at first, but it's actually a great thing that helps you and your body to find your way back to yourself.

Detox means renunciation on the one hand, but on the other hand it also means detoxification. Therefore, you should not look at this term negatively, but rather as a chance. In everyday life there is usually no time for this either, we follow our usual routine and find it difficult to change anything.
So if you feel like it, but only then, after all it is your well-deserved holiday, then consider detoxing for a few days. Basically, this means first of all a healthy diet based on lots of vegetables, fruit and wholesome cereals as well as detoxifying teas like this Yogi Tea: https://www.navoco.de/yogi-tea-detox-bio-17st. In combination with relaxation exercises and baths, the aim is to eliminate harmful substances from the body.

Because who of us doesn't know the problem: As soon as we get up in the morning, WhatsApp messages and emails are hedged, once more briefly through Twitter or Instagram and only then can the day begin. It may be hard for you, but it's a good experience to switch off your mobile phone for a few hours or days. This creates space in your head for new things and the good feeling that there are other important things in life.

The indoor climate as a feel-good factor

But you can only really enjoy wellness on holiday at home if the indoor climate is good. It is mainly responsible for the fact that you feel good in your skin. It is recommended that the temperature should not be more than 20 degrees, in the kitchen even 18 degrees are sufficient. But the humidity is also decisive for the room climate, because it should neither be too high nor too low. A bowl of water on the heating or drying a guard in the room concerned can help against too low humidity. If the climate is too humid, an air dehumidifier could help.

However, plants also contribute to a good indoor climate. Aloe vera is an excellent plant for this. It likes sunny and warm places and binds both dust and germs from the air. It is also able to absorb formaldehydes. Also bow hemp, sword fern or dragon tree contribute to a noticeably better indoor climate.

A pleasant room climate can also be created quickly with a room air spray - without harmful ingredients, of course. For example with the Primavera Spray.
