AT HOME.. With Nour

AT HOME.. With Nour

One day we woke up to a global pandemic and the whole world was put on pause. The last few months will forever be engrained in our generation’s mind.  Ironically, many felt they were taken out of their comfort zone by being forced to stay in their comfort zone (home). After one month of fasting alone in London, I have really resonated with Wayne Dyers quote: “You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.” 

I'd love to share with you some tools I have been putting to practice on a daily basis that have made the "not-so-great" days seem trivial.


1. Dressing Up

Are you staying in your sweats all day, feeling lazy and uninspired? Even if you have no one to see, it’s important to feel good about yourself.

I love wearing my Nasiba Hafiz kaftan, and Lasuna Bali lounge pants because they’re both stylish and comfortableSomething so small like the act of dressing up can do wonders in helping brighten up your day.  




2. Journaling:

Writing is a very therapeutic act, one that many of us have stemmed away from thanks to our smart phones and laptops. There is nothing more powerful than writing down your thoughts with pen and paper. Try to do this everyday.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              


3. An Attitude of Gratitude:

Every night, I write 10 things I’m grateful for that happened throughout my day. Its okay to start with 3. With time, you will find you have more to add each day.

  Download the app “calm” and listen to “Gratitude” by Tamara Levitt to  learn about the incredible benefits that gratitude can bring to your daily life.
This Alhamdulillah sound-waves necklace reminds you to do exactly that. 
"و ان شكرتم لأزيدنكم" 


4. Feeding your mind:  

Take this time to grow and learn more about something you've always wanted to. 
  Since March, I've been taking astrology classes with an amazing group of women, a subject I have always been passionate about, but never had the time for.
There are also some great courses on who are accredited from reputable institutions such as Harvard and MIT.  
This Leo constellation necklace reminds me to encompass my identity.  

5. Tasbeeh and Positive Affirmations:

Tasbeeh is very powerful. I use my subha to recite daily positive affirmations such as “I believe in, trust and have confidence in myself.”, “I make the best of every situation.”, and “I am beautiful from the inside out”. This helps me in many ways. Don’t underestimate the power of positive affirmations. They work wonders! 


6. Meditation:

 I always start my day with breathing and meditation.

I find it truly makes a difference in both calming and sharpening the mind. The app calm is great; Meditations are ten minutes, and end with a beautiful inspiring message. If you want to go deeper into the practice of meditation, download the Oprah & Deepak app "Hope in Uncertain Times". 


To add to the Zen, I love lighting a beautiful scented candle while I meditate.


7. Breathing

For breath work, I recommend following @yamunabody who offers daily breath work exercises, and using the Wim Hof Method app, I use this every morning, and it only takes around 10- 15 mins. It has really transformed my focus.
