Enlightened Living: Self Care Candles

Using Candles to Elevate Your Self Care Routine

In today's busy world, it's easy to forget to prioritize what matters most. Distractions are so commonplace that we often overlook the simple things that can bring joy into our daily lives; a distracted mind is a distracted home, and vice versa.

By taking a moment out of our day to focus on self care, we are giving ourselves the opportunity to reconnect with our mind and body and to rediscover our inner calm. One of our favorite ways to introduce self care in the home is with the simple act of lighting a candle.

The Power of Candlelight in Your Home

At Enlighten, we believe in the transformative power of candlelight. Candles have been used for centuries as a form of self-care and a way to create a calm, peaceful atmosphere in the home.

One of the best ways to use candles in the home as a form of self care is by creating a cozy corner for yourself. This corner could be your living room, your bedroom, or any other space that you want to transform into a place to tap into your inner calm. Simply light a candle and allow yourself to sink into its warm, comforting glow.

7 Reasons Why Self Care Isn't Selfish

Prioritizing your wellbeing is essential to living a healthy, fulfilling life. We love self care because it:

  • Reduces stress: whether it's exercise, meditation or relaxation, a little self care helps improve your mood and keep life's stressors at bay
  • Increases self-awareness: spending time reflecting inward allows you to better understand your needs and wants and discover what truly matters most
  • Increases energy levels: you may find yourself feeling more motivated and productive throughout the day
  • Boosts happiness: when we put our wellbeing first, we're likely to feel more satisfied and fulfilled
  • Enhance creativity: whether it's art, photography or journaling, we're fueling our inspiration and imagination 
  • Increase physical health: better sleep, regular exercise, and a healthy diet can leave us feeling better about the way we look and feel
  • Improves relationships: when we feel good about ourselves, we can be more present and attentive with others

Bottom Line: Candles = Self Care.

Whether you're looking for a way to unwind after a long day or simply seeking to create a space of intentional simplicity, we believe a well-placed candle can transform your space and your state of mind.

Using candles in your self care routine can help you:

  • De-stress and recharge
  • Reach a higher consciousness
  • Manifest your inner strength and power
  • Enhance your sense of wellbeing
