Create space for well-being habits at home
Get those resolutions realised! See how you can simplify starting a new, active habit that leaves you both relaxed and refreshed. Also, it requires little space and even less equipment.
Make room to move (it doesn’t take much)
Finding time to stretch out gets easier if you can do it right at home. Having a plan for creating an open surface also helps a lot. With furniture that’s lightweight or can be rolled out of the way, clearing enough space is done quick and easy.
Bring out your well-being kit
Keep all the stuff you need – and maybe a few scented candles for mood – close and accessible. Collect it all in a box for a lightning-fast set-up.
Lay down and do your thing
When you’ve cleared enough floor space, you’re out of excuses. Just lay down, stretch out and begin your healthy new habit.

Make it an experience for all of you
Moving your body is one thing, but make it a session for the mind as well. After the exercise, dim the lights, light a scented candle, play soft music, and truly relax.
Save space and money and use what you have
Avoid gym cards and bulky equipment, and take advantage of what’s already yours. A pouffe becomes an exercise ball, use a towel as a resistance band.
The makings of a good habit
To get energy levels back up, finish by giving yourself a boost of vitamins and a pat on the back. This could be worth repeating, right? Same time tomorrow?
