And if you have to stay at home for a longer period of time for one reason or another, it would make sense to feel good and at ease as possible. And how do you achieve better well-being? With a suitable ambience. The light primarily affects the mind. Then it would be good to have it warm enough at home. You should surround yourself with colors and fabrics that are good for you.

Make tea yourself – which herbs work how

Many stores sell loose or ready-made tea blends that are very good. But it is always better to know the effects of herbs and mix your own tea according to your mood. Herbs that cannot be found in the tea shop can probably be found in the pharmacy or drugstore. A rule of thumb says that you can simply dose the herbal tea: Take a pinch with your own hand and let it steep in hot water for 3-5 minutes. Then strain and enjoy!

Every spice note and every fragrance corresponds to a mood
