Honor Thy | Routine

The very last of the Christmas decorations have finally come down, the thank you cards have been safely delivered and the kids are back in school. Now what? The post-holiday come-down can be almost as disorienting as the holidays themselves: feeling exhausted by the festivities, intimidated by the list of resolutions & overall at a loss for how to go about the day. That's where the magic of building routines comes in.

 
According to Northwestern Medicine, the health benefits of having a routine are numerous: routines reduce stress and lead to all around sharper mental and physical health. In addition to a solid morning routine, like this one we found from Huffington Post, and a calming evening routine, like this one from Sleep.org, it's just as important to develop a self-care routine. That's where we come in.
 
With both our products and our services, we seek to help you develop positive routines to help you prioritize your body, skin, mind & spirit. Here are a couple things you can start to build into your routine throughout your day to help you find your most alert, healthy & happy self.
