It is great to get out and have adventures. It is also awesome to stay at home and explore the world that is around us daily. There are so many things to see and experience right in our own homes.
Open up your senses. Really look around. Can you see anything you have not noticed before? We often become numb to our immediate environments as we rush through our days. Take some time to look around and find things about your home that you are grateful for. Gratitude can open our senses and our minds.
Stop looking at the dust bunnies and check out the squirrels walking the power line in the back yard. Take a moment to step outside and watch the trees dancing in the wind. Just putter around. Clean out drawers and closets and find things you have not seen in ages. Go through old books, music, photos, movies. Find a recipe that you have always loved and invite friends over for dinner. Take a walk around your neighborhood. Take a long shower or bath by candlelight. You can make this whatever you want.
A stay-cation can be a great way to renew and refresh ourselves.
