There are certain smells that we always associate with pleasant memories – for some, it is the smell of earth, after the first rains, for others, it is the aroma of incense sticks in the prayer room. There are certain smells that always relax your mind and calm your body – these are the smells that remind you of something or someone nice or take you away to a world that is far away from the harsh realities of life.
Unfortunately for us, we are at a time in our lives, where things are not in the best of state and we need that positive reinforcement. Almost all of us are locked inside our own homes, with nowhere to go and not much to do at home. Many of us are also having to work from home, which can prove to be quite tough, especially when you have multiple people at home; on the other hand, people who stay alone will also tell you a similar tale that they too miss a certain sense of comfort.
However, if you are a regular shopper at the Maeva Store, then making an environment that comforts you and soothes you, should become a lot easier. Allow us to tell you a few simple tips and tricks that will help you stay focused a lot more easily, during these trying times.
First of all, clear out an area that you intend to use as your workspace and then take a little time to set it up. If you have any floral bouquets, table décor or succulents that you have already purchased from the Maeva Store, set them up to make your workspace pretty and inspiring. Now, let’s move on to creating the perfect atmosphere – let’s say you have been assigned to write an article on travel and tourism, you will want to be actually sitting on a sunny beach, with one of those exotic looking cocktails by your side. Unfortunately, that would not be possible, but you can always create that same atmosphere, by using fragrances that remind you of the ocean. You can choose from your gorgeous looking Amalfi Coast candles or you could look at Walk by the Beach, because these are sure to transport you to the coast and you will be able to feel your creativity ramp up several notches.
Now, let’s say, you need to get that extra energy to complete an urgent project for work, but your mind just refuses to wake up from this deep slumber like mood. The reed diffusers with some soothing spices, essential oils such as Lemon, Mandarin, Refresh, Energising, mood elevators such as Limitless and Walkin’ on Sunshine are great to pep you up and give you that zing in your step. And when you are done for the day, and just want to relax and retreat to some quiet corner of your mind, choose from the essential such as Spiritual, Patchouli, Serenity or mood elevators such as Space Of Your Own, Deep in the Forest or Quiet Rendezvous. And don’t worry if you don’t have all of these – use what you have and make sure that you add the rest to your wishlist!
