A healthy mind and body is important to keep you happily skipping along your journey. Here are our top ten must do's this spring to get you into that perfect BoJoy spirit. What is BoJoy you ask? Well, if bohemian is this years look and joy is what we live for than we declare bohemian joy to be this years happiness statement.
So without further ado here is our top ten;
1 Nourishing your mind by taking a well deserved break at a cozy coffee place is just what the doctor ordered. Find a place where you feel at home and relax. If you love cats, like to follow the latest trends, and want to cuddle while eating delicious cake you might want to visit one of the cat cafes that are popping up in a lot of major cities around the world.
2 Get out of the house and enjoy a spring walk along the beach or the park. Take your time walking and be one with your surroundings. Listen to the soothing sounds of nature. Be at peace, simply by appreciating all the beauty around you.
3 For a healthy body make sure you eat right. Start your mornings with a healthy smoothy or a bowl of yoghurt full of vitamins. To make eating healthy a little more fun, try to grow your own fruits and vegs. Urban gardening is IT at the moment. You do not even need to have a big garden or amazing skills to grow strawberries or tomatoes. You can buy these type of plants already partly grown. The only thing you have to do is give it some TLC and water.
4 Make plans to go on a trip with your friends or loved ones during the summer. Spend the entire weeks prior having fun just thinking about it and planning every detail of your trip. Choose the perfect vacay playlist, coordinate your outfits with your friends, so you can take the perfect selfies. You will get tons of happy energy from all the pre-fun.
5 Pimp up your ride. This year go all out and get your car or your bike some accessories. This will not only make your ride look great but it will also give you much joy every time you look at your happy hippy ride. Smiling like crazy guaranteed.
6 Make sure you soak up plenty of vitamin D. If the sun is out than so should you. Vitamine D has many benefits. It improves your immune system, makes your bones and teeth strong. Deficiency can cause depression and low energy, so keep your mind healthy and soak up those vitamins.
7 Yoga, meditation or Tai Chi is a good way to keep your mind and body in balance. Not for you? Try hula hooping and check off that list. Bringing back those happy childhood memories. Check. Getting into shape. Check. Laughing like crazy. Check.
8 The festival season officially started. Make sure you have the perfect festival outfit, temporary tattoos and accessories to make your bohemian look complete. Festivals are great mood boosters. The atmosphere is very relaxing, fun and definitely BoJoy.
9 A perfect summer is filled with long summer nights having fun with family and friends. Telling stories, dancing to music and eating good food. Pick out a spot in your garden or terrace and create the perfect BBQ/hangout place for those summer nights. Decorate it with lounge pillows, flowers, candles and whatever makes you happy.
10 For romantic summer nights redecorate your bedroom. Fill it with roses, seashells and soothing nature sounds. Create a peaceful space where you feel relaxed. A place where you can read a book, enjoy romantic evenings with a loved one or simple fall peacefully into sleep. Most people have a tv or a laptop in the bedroom nowadays. Turn it off and turn the tranquility on.
Hope these tips will get you into the bohemian joy spirit and ready for a perfect summer.
With love, Ana
