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
Holiday at home: Detox is the order of the day
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.
