What is a Wellness Sanctuary?
Do you imagine a Wellness Sanctuary as treating yourself to a 5* spa retreat? Dressed in a fluffy towel robe waiting for your Elemis treatment? Relaxing beforehand with a mint tea in a dimly lit room with spa music soothing your mind, body and soul?
I sure used to!
And of course, all of that is gorgeous as a self-care moment. But why wait to be at a luxurious spa and delay the experience of wellness?
I’m here to inform you that you can create your very own personalised Wellness Sanctuary at home!
All you have to do is become intentional and purposeful with the space you have and align this with your dream wellness routines. Simple!
There are no rules… it’s personal to you and your wellness regime.
Why Wellness Is Key for Sustainable Success
How can you create your best and most creative work consistently if your personal energy is not suitably protected and re-energised?
As many of you will agree – self-care and wellness is ESSENTIAL for sustainable business success. And this means different things to different people.
For me, my wellness routine is designed to nourish my mind, body and soul.
This includes a morning routine full of meditation, gratitude, journaling, visualisations and yoga to set my day up for success. I also love to read books and listen to podcasts / videos throughout the day to unwind and feed my mind with positivity! And part of my night-time routine usually involves an indulgent bath with essential oils, candles and music to relax and reconnect with myself.
The benefit of working from home is that you can create a dedicated Wellness Sanctuary within your space that you can escape to and enjoy at any point!
Midday baths, anyone?
My Wellness Sanctuary
Everyone’s sanctuary will be different – as we are all unique and one-of-a-kind. Also, you can have multiple sanctuary spaces for different purposes!
The challenge is to view your home intentionally, create a purpose for each space and design with your goals in mind.
It doesn’t have to be elaborate – just intentional.
I have two Wellness Sanctuaries in my home. The main area is a comfy sofa in my living room and the second is my bath tub! Each sanctuary is designed to…
- relax my mind, body and soul (clutter-free, tidy & inspirational)
- align with the feelings and emotions that I want to create
- help me complete my wellness activities with ease (prompts to support my ritual becoming a daily habit)
- provide an experience that I’m excited and joyful about
Having a sanctuary means that I look forward to completing my wellness ritual every day knowing I have a dedicated space designed for me and my vision for success. I am able to indulge in my routine with ease and comfort.
It has been an absolute game-changer to ensure that I consistently show up in my business as I intend to – with creativity, passion, love and clarity!
How To Create Your Wellness Sanctuary
As we head into a new decade (yay!), there’s no better time to build a wellness sanctuary that will support you in achieving your big 2020 goals and dreams.
To get started, journal on the following questions and then take glorious inspired action to create your own dream space!
- How do I want to feel in 2020?
- What wellness activities help create these feelings for me while at home?
- Where can I create a dedicated Wellness Sanctuary at home to complete this ritual?
- How can I design my sanctuary to give the most gorgeous and fulfilling experience?
- Is there anything that does not align that needs to be moved to another area of my home?
- What visuals, sounds and smells can I add to my sanctuary?
And remember… these questions can be applied to any space within your home.
I guide female business owners to create their dream Work Sanctuary using these principles (plus feng shui guidance) to maximise their business success and enjoyment! It’s truly magical.
