Whether you’re looking to get creative with a DIY wellness routine or simply want to incorporate a little “me” time into your day, there are many easy ways to improve your physical and mental health without leaving the house.
Relieve stress with aromatherapy
Scents are a powerful tool to incorporate into your wellness routine. Essential oils can help improve your mood and are a natural alternative to more synthetic fragrances. Try adding essential oils into your body moisturizer or infuse them into your shower with Moen’s Aromatherapy Handshower with INLY™ Technology. Moen® Aromatherapy Handshowers are uniquely designed with the ability to infuse essential oils directly into the water flow to create an incredible and sensory shower experience. The INLY Shower Capsules slide into an infusion dial on the showerhead, then users select a preferred dilution setting to diffuse the running water with essential oils in one of four spa-inspired fragrances.
Focus on nutrition with a green smoothie
Give your wellbeing a boost by starting your day with a green smoothie. Fill it with spinach or kale and top it with fruit to help pack in the nutrients. Or, experiment with new superfood ingredients like maca powder, flax seeds or spirulina, so you never get bored with the same recipe. No matter what ingredients you decide to cram into your blender, a smoothie is a great way to ensure a healthy start.
Show your skin some love with a homemade face mask
You don’t need fancy ingredients to pamper your skin and achieve amazing results. In fact, most face masks start with ingredients found in your fridge or pantry. Give this recipe a try:
Combine 1/2 cup hot—not boiling—water and 1/3 cup oatmeal.
Let the water and oatmeal sit for two or three minutes, then mix in 2 tablespoons plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons honey, and 1 small egg white.
Apply the mixture in a thin layer to your face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing.
Want the perfect mask every time? The U by Moen™ Smart Faucet allows you to dispense precise measurements and temperatures, plus save favourites as presets in the Moen app. Once you’ve settled on just the right “hot” for your mask mixture, save the temperature and water amount in the app for easy reference.
Keep your body moving with physical activity
Staying active helps de-stress the mind and detoxify the body, so it’s an essential part of any wellness effort. Luckily, there are plenty of free resources online to amplify your at-home workout, including YouTube videos, fun fitness courses and workout ideas on Pinterest. The best part? Trying something new can be done from the comfort of your own home. Test out cross-fit or get your zen on with an at-home yoga session. You’ll never get bored with so many options available.
Mix and match these tips to customize a wellness routine unique to you. You’ll be feeling re-energized and rejuvenated in no time.
