Here are some easy decorating ideas that will help you turn your space into the ultimate cozy at home vacation.

Self Care Tips:
1. Read one chapter of a book a night: Routine is important it is easy to let days pass without doing anything productive. Making a point to read a chapter of a book a night both distracts and calms your brain.
2. Do Some Yoga: Get up and stretch. This will increase blood flow to your brain and the rest of the body.
3. Mindful Meditation: Take a minute to disconnect from everything. No phone, no T.V. just a moment of focusing on your breathing. You can download guided meditations if you need to quite your brain.
4. Do something just for you: Make yourself a cup of tea, watch your favorite movie, give yourself a gift. It can be easy to forget about our needs especially when you have kids take time to listen to what you want.
