I am on week 6 of working from home, and who knows what day self-isolating.
I’ve been trying to find a happy medium of using this time to relax and detune and also be somewhat productive. Over the weekend I completely gutted and organised my bathroom, it was like a form of therapy.
Following the same theme of sustainability and quality over quantity, I have also translated that to assessing what I actually use which after the weekend has now created so much more space in my cupboards! It’s a good feeling.
Not too long ago I did a post on Bathroom Sustainability, highlighting my Bare Minerals face products. I gave myself the task of going through my bathroom and changing it up so everything in that one area is kind, or kinder to the environment. Of course some products were already taking residence there, so I have created a list to replace these with eco alternatives once they’ve run their course.
My skin has already thanked me for it.
In conjunction with focusing on having a sustainable bathroom, I also wanted to make it a sanctuary, a place where I can unwind or proactively start my day. This is also reflected in how I have organised my space.
Here’s what I did.
- Daily Products
- Hair Care
- Spa (including face masks, bath salts etc.)
- Essentials (soaps/toilet paper etc.)
- Misc. (which will be reviewed, and if untouched removed).
I am really enjoying minimalising and organising different spaces at home, it has been very mentally cleansing to feel organised and clear headed by reducing how much clutter surrounds me.
I hope you have all managed to somewhat take refuge in this time to detune and assess your life and home that guards it.
