It’s not hard to see that the recent measures that have been undertaken to curtail Covid-19 and its spread, such as large-scale societal lock-downs, are quite necessary. It’s also true that some people have found it difficult to adapt to this new change, which is not hard to understand, either.
While this does seem to have become a politicized issue, as most things are these days, it’s also true that self-care requires no deep justification, and can rarely be argued with.
Many of us require the little things to feel normal. A nice cup of tea, or lighting a candle in the living room, or spending some time cooking a lovely meal with creative effort aren’t wasted efforts, but little measures that help us feel more normal at this time.
Home celebrations, then, can also follow this worthwhile pursuit. Parties, heading out on the town and celebratory events are often cancelled or even unwise at the moment.
But could it be that you can throw a beautiful home celebration yourself? We believe so. Let’s see how you could achieve that:
Set The Mood
Set the mood to the extent you are able. This might involve using beautiful candles, nangs, or relaxing blankets to help your home feel well-trimmed and inviting.
Warm lights, or LED RGB lights that bring an ethereal element to your home can also be quite wonderful to use. Lockdown can often feel tiresome, so don’t be afraid to invest in the things that make you happy, such as a vinyl player to help punctuate your living room with beautiful music, or through image projections on free walls that add to your comfort. It’s the little things that make a difference.
The most unselfish and caring thing you can do is just wear a face mask. Its saves others lives, and it saves yours. If you can wear bad fashion choices, you can wear a face mask.
Light entertainment can help you celebrate at home. A great movie marathon, investing in 4k Blu-rays for your excellent new television, and little board games that help you and your family members connect and play with a sense of lightheartedness all count.
For some, light-heartedness might mean running a family talent or comedy show, or jamming with those who can play an instrument in step with you, or simply spending the time enjoying some arts and crafts. Little experiences like this can help you feel relieve your stress in the best possible manner.
All The Trimmings
Go for all the trimmings. Use celebration decorations around your house. Set up petals on the floor if you’re going for something romantic, or lay out a platter if you’re bringing together your family.
Invest in a beautiful bottle of wine, or purchase a nice throw for your living room, or bring out the comforting rug that your children love to play on, or simply opt for warmer lighting options.
Trimmings can help you go the extra mile through and through, and with this advice, you’ll no doubt see a marked improvement in your home celebrations.
With this advice, we hope you can more easily enjoy home celebrations in these locked-down times. Fun should not be a thing of the past.
