Since we are spending so much time indoors these days you might as well make your living space functional and appealing. Take steps to make your home much more relaxing while practicing self-care at the same time. First, do your best to de-clutter your space to help you clear your mind. It really works! Next, you can add a few self-care home goods and housewares that will make your house more inviting and a better place to stay while you are sheltering in place.
Self-Care Home Goods
Since we need to wash our hands so much, it’s a good excuse to get a few new soap dispensers. I personally love to buy new ones to update a bathroom or kitchen. Now more than ever, you may need a soap dispenser for every room in your house that has a sink. Or you can use them for hand sanitizer too, so you can have one in every room of your house. This set of 4 different colored glass Foaming Soap Dispenser Pumps from Target is perfect. Kids (and I) love foaming dispensers. Or you can find some other very cool soap dispensers like this Threshold™ natural wood-look one for only $12.99.
You may also like this Better Living Products Touchless Dispenser in stainless steel for super-clean living.
Not only will your home look better, but you will have the peace of mind that everyone in your home is reminded to use soap or hand sanitizers with your pretty new soap dispensers.
A Sanitizing Vacuum
This Omni Power UV+ Cordless Vacuum deep cleans to remove dirt, germs and allergens. It’s so lightweight you won’t dread bringing it out to vacuum so you’ll definitely use it more. It’s easy-to-use, has no cords to wind up, and it won’t take up much room in your new Zen-like space.
Candles and Diffusers
Now that your home is clean, you can sit back and relax with your favorite fragrance. These Paddywax candles come in gorgeous iridescent ceramic jars that will add a bright spot of color to your room while filling the air with amazing fragrances.
Bergamot is one of my favorite scents, and this CB2 and Fir Reed Diffuser would look elegant in a room with any decor. This diffuser was created in collaboration with Bright Endeavors. They are a Chicago non-profit that lights the way for young moms and their children and offers paid job training programs.
Tea for One
Take a break and relax with a cup of herbal tea. Your “me time” will be more fun with your own tea set and cup. This Pinky Up Addison Tea for One from Walmart is $39.98 comes in a bunch of other fun patterns and colors. Get one for every tea drinker in your family.
Rice for Two
Like so many of us, you may be cooking with more of the items in your panty. I have been making more long grain brown rice, and I don’t like watching it on the stove. To make it easier to make healthy meals, this cute little Dash 2-Cup Mini Rice Cooker from Target comes in very handy. It makes 2 cups of rice, grains, soups, stews and more. It’s also available in a bunch of fun colors like aqua, pink, red, white and black. Look for kitchen housewares like this that will help you to eat healthy during the quarantine.
Self-Care Home Goods Blankets
Even as the weather changes to spring, it’s still very chilly in some parts of the country. Snuggle up with a cozy sweater blanket in a calm neutral color. This Sweater Knit Bed Blanket from Target comes in sizes to fit any bed but can also be used as a throw.
Or you may like the therapy of a weighted blanket to help you sleep. Weighted blankets offer the feeling of being hugged while you sleep. They come in different weights and sizes. For example, a 15 lb. weighted blanket is for an individual weighing around 140 lbs. This weighted blanket from Amazon is available in different sizes, weights and colors to suit your needs.
Not only do they look pretty but plants like this Golden Pothos also clean the air. You can order this plant and other air cleaning house plants for delivery from Etsy. Watching them grow and finding a place in your home for a house plant is great for your psyche too. It’s like getting a new pet, without any of the hassle.
Last but not least, pillows always make your home comfortable and inviting, and perfect for lounging around on a soft sofa or chair. This Let’s Stay Home Pillow Cover is a reminder that home is a nice place to be! You can find this one and more stay at home pillow designs to fit your decor at Etsy.
Stay home, stay safe, and stay comfortable!
