The end of the year is finally here, and I know I’m taking extra time to set intentions for the year to come while mindfully closing out the current year. It’s been a year full of changes, surprises, and challenges to say the least, but I’ve found there has also been so much to be thankful for. I feel like the years are like chapters in a book, so now is a great time to close out this chapter. At the beginning of 2020 I had huge New Year’s Eve plans to be somewhere tropical or with my family, but that’s not at all how plans have shaped up so I’m spending the time alone with my partner to focus on transitioning into this new year in the most powerful way possible. At this point, I’m just excited to be safe, healthy, comfy and cozy. As the year ends, I’m practicing more self-care and setting myself up for success.
I’m going to be spending my time before beginning 2021 getting cozy and journaling. You all know I’ve been loving my loungewear pieces from Zella by Nordstrom, and I’m excited to ring in the new year in one of my favorite sets. This set gives me the tropical vibes I’ve been looking for, and although I’m not anywhere warm, I can definitely bring the blue skies home in this set. Zella has amazing options in a variety of sizes and their loungewear is so comfy. I ordered on Nordstrom and just a few days later I had my items. Shipping was a breeze, I also love curbside pickup plus easy returns. I’ve been shopping on Nordstrom for quite a few years and love The Nordy Club benefits! The holidays are often focused on gifts and giving back to others but we can’t forget ourselves. A huge part of closing this year’s chapter is setting myself up to journal and process because it’s such a great way to gain clarity. Journaling and processing is such a great way to give back to yourself.
Setting up your Space:
Find a comfortable space to sit and relax. I love the corner of my couch with a few blankets.
Get cozy! Here are some of my favorite picks from Zella Nordstrom and the pieces I’m wearing here. I always feel more cozy with socks so I’ve been loving this pair for working out or lounging around the house.
Light a candle. This always puts me in a relaxed thoughtful mood.
Put on music that makes you feel good. For me this could be anything from classical music to showtunes to R&B depending on the day. Loving my Chill Vibes playlist a lot lately.
I’ll usually put my phone on do not disturb mode so I can be fully present in the moment. If I do have work to do or something coming up, setting a timer helps me stay both present and mindful. This way you can completely delve into journaling but know that in 30 mins or an hour you’ll be able to check in on anything pressing.
