Home Is Where the Calm Is

Your Happy Place (And How to Get There)

At Onyx + Rose, we’re thrilled to be a part of your wellness ritual. So many of you have shared how our high-quality CBD products made a positive impact in your life, and how they’ve helped you maintain a feeling of well-being all day long. Often, these benefits are amplified by combining them with relaxation routines that help you chill out.

As you think about your complete wellness routine, it’s important to recognize that it’s not just what you do, but where you do it. Your physical surroundings have a tremendous impact on your sense of staying centered and balanced. A thoughtful CBD regimen can help you balance the stress of hectic environments like your commute, your workplace, or just the unpredictable nature of the world we live in. Let’s look at some simple ways we can improve the spaces around us to contribute to our overall wellness.

Go Wild

People belong in nature. Even if you wouldn’t call yourself “outdoors-y,” we all recognize the special tranquility that comes from fresh air, golden hour rays and just slowing down to listen to the sounds of nature all around you. Spaces like your back patio, the park in your neighborhood, or the green rooftop near your office have a lot to offer. Use them. Studies have shown that individuals who visit natural spaces weekly and feel psychologically connected to them report better physical and mental wellbeing.  Whether you have access to an urban park or a refuge in the wilderness, it can be a natural remedy for the stressors of urban living, according to research. Spending time wandering along trails, encountering wildlife, and just taking it all in can make us more resilient and improve overall health.

So, our advice? Find comfort and some much-needed solace through nature in a way that fits you + your lifestyle.

Create Your Sanctuary

All the meditation, yoga, and green space in the world won’t do you much good if the first thing you walk in on when you open your door is clutter and chaos. Look for ways to make your home into a healing environment. Pay special attention to the first things you see when you come home (your entryway), and the last things you see at night (your nightstand). Small tidying touches can make these sources of delight and relaxation. We recommend keeping your favorite CBD products in a space that’s a part of your nightly ritual as a reminder to include it as part of your evening wind-down.

You probably already have space in mind that can be your at-home sanctuary. If your space has natural sunlight beaming in and outdoor views, even better. Next, think about what you love doing that brings you the most calmness and joy, and adapt the space to suit those activities. Love a good read? Add in a comfortable chair and a lamp. Do you meditate? Add a diffuser or scented oil that will help you unwind and focus. Your healing space could even be a workbench where you build or fix things. Organizing your tools and improving the light source could help you maximize the benefits you get from this restful, healing spot. Any space you use frequently is one worth making somewhere where you feel inspired and balanced.

Feeling at Home at Work. Is That a Thing?

Naturally, most of us feel more comfortable at home than at work. But, if you’re going to spend 40 hours a week there, spend some time thinking about how you might upgrade your office environment. Clutter and unused items piling up in your workspace can affect your productivity. Empty out the junk drawers, find cute and clever ways to organize and label, and see what a fresh perspective and maybe even a small budget can get you. If you’re able to work from home, create a visual separation between your living space and your designated home office space. A bright wall color, chic divider screen or faux DIY built-ins all go a long way to make your home office feel special. Make your space truly your own and a place where you can temporarily recharge during the day.

Find Your Center Everywhere You Look

Where else do you spend time that may be subconsciously causing you stress and could use some conscious improvement? If you spend a lot of time in your car (like most of us), you might consider how you can improve that daily experience for yourself. Next time you’re stuck in traffic, you might even feel less anxious if your car isn’t full of empty coffee cups and boxes. Once you start thinking about the spaces around you, you’ll find lots of ways to increase the positive impact they have on your day.

Onyx + Rose CBD: Improving Your Well-Being Wherever You Are

The conscious decisions we make about the spaces around us can have a profound effect on our mindset. Populating those spaces with elements of nature, a sense of order, and touches that help us relax is essential. At Onyx + Rose, we’re committed to supporting your overall wellness routine and encourage you to take a look around for small changes you can make that will add a little joy to your everyday. For you, that may include adding a high-quality CBD oil, topical, or bath bomb to your routine. If that’s the case, we encourage you to settle for nothing less than organically grown, conscientiously crafted products like the ones you’ll always find from us at Onyx + Rose.
