With the holidays behind us and signs of spring still a few months out, we’ve been searching for ways to stay focused and inspired throughout the day as the winter season continues. When it comes to channeling relaxation and reflection, we often turn to our routines to keep us grounded. So, what better way to harness a little zest for life than by developing a new ritual for our work-from-home routine?
This winter practice is inspired by Evio’s Hemp & Peppermint Lip Serum, and promises to add a little pep (pun intended!) to your step over the coming weeks. Unlike a morning or evening routine, you can follow the steps below any time you’re feeling sluggish. Ready to say farewell to that familiar afternoon slump, for good? Samesies!
Step One: Say “So Long, Scroll Time”
With the new year kicking off we’ve been experimenting with new productivity tools. Tracking our time, it turns out, has done wonders to release the need for mindless scrolling. If you’re hitting a wall midday, resist the urge to reach for your phone (a sure way to zap any remaining energy!). Instead, stand up, leave your phone on the desk, and move on to step two.
Step Two: Hit The Refresh Button
Babe, we knoooow it’s cold outside, but a bit of fresh air will do you good – promise. 60 seconds spent breathing air from the *real outdoors* will instantly invigorate, allowing your brain to reset + refocus. Bonus points if you bundle up and take a walk around the block! So much genius can come out of a quick jaunt away from your usual surroundings.
Step Three: Grab Something to Sip On
Once you’ve had a chance to spend a few minutes with the great outdoors, set aside a moment to brew yourself a cup of tea. While we love a latte moment, herbal peppermint tea is a stimulating alternative you can sip on any time of day without ruining your beauty sleep.
Step Four: Take a Moment for Lip Service
A perfect match for our tea of choice, Evio’s serum contains peppermint oil which helps heal cracked skin for a soothing effect on lips *and* minds. Hemp seed oil offers antioxidants and natural fatty acids that nourish and protect the skin, with Omega oils that repair the skin barrier and form a seal over the lips to keep moisture in.
Clean, vegan, and cruelty free, you can confidently reach for this serum to seal your routine with a pucker, and sit back down to focus on the task at hand with more mental clarity. Bonus: this serum doubles as an overnight treatment for smooth, soft lips in the morning.
Alright babe – what are you waiting for? The next time you’re feeling less-than-motivated to dive into your to-do list, follow the steps above. Reach out to us on Instagram to let us know how it goes!
