Let us tell you a secret…creating a life of everyday luxury has almost nothing to do with how much money you have access to. The small details of your everyday routines are what build a life that is full of luxury. It is your daily habits and thoughts that open up the world of everyday luxury to you.
What Does Everyday Luxury Mean?
If you are anything like us, you have always dreamt of living a luxury lifestyle. The ability to sip champagne whenever and where ever you want, unlimited shopping trips where you throw whatever your heart desires in the bag, lavish vacations, and a huge house with staff to maintain it all sound like paradise.
An opulent vacation to the Seychelles or Paris will absolutely add to your luxury lifestyle, but you have to come home at some point. You should not have to leave your house or your city to experience luxury. If you don’t have small luxuries as part of your daily life you are highly unlikely to keep living the luxurious life you have experienced on your vacation. Experiencing bursts of extreme luxury is still a thing to be cherished, but those are not the things that define everyday luxury.
If you want to live a life that has a luxury experience every day you have to start to cultivate feelings of abundance, beauty, divinity, and vigor today. This will start to shift how you are showing up and moving through the world to attract more luxurious experiences.
Living the Luxury Life
Sure, having a lot of money can make living a luxurious life easier, but appreciating the gift that it is might be overlooked. Luxury does not equate to large sums of money. Modern advertising entangles the two, but luxury is much more about the quality of the experience and the time spent. Buying luxury goods or experiences is just a bonus.
Daily luxurious living is a state of mind. It is a full embodiment of a way of living and that’s excellent news! Because living everyday luxury is a mindset and not an account balance, you can start living the luxury life right now.
Living a luxurious life is more about being able to control how you spend your time, who you spend it with, and being happy with how yourself. When you start to practice gratitude for your health, meals, taking a walk, the smell of morning air, a laugh with a friend and anything else you have your life will start to feel a lot more luxurious.
When you shift your focus from what you think you don’t have to fully appreciating what you do have, your mindset about the level of luxury in your everyday life will change. Remember, not everyone has what you have and the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.
How to Create a Luxurious Everday Life
To create a luxurious everyday life you need to have gratitude for and focus on the things that you have. With a few updates and modifications to your daily habits, you can make sure every day has a little something special and feels indulgent. Here are some tips to get you started.
Stop saying, “I can’t afford that.”
If you think something is too lavish for you to have it will always be too expensive. Try saying, “That’s not currently in my budget,” instead. It leaves the door open to budgeting for it in the future.
Grab a Drink at a Luxurious Hotel Bar
It won’t cost you as much as a full meal at a luxury restaurant, but you’ll get a taste of a luxury vibe.
Go to an Open House for a Home You’d Love to Live in
It might be out of your budget at the moment, but you can take some ideas from how it was staged and replicate them in your own space.
Wear your Good Things Whenever you Want
Don’t save your best items for a special occasion. You are the occasion.
Fragrance helps set the mood and so wear a scent that makes you feel luxurious.
Get Dressed Every Day
It doesn’t matter if you’ll just be at home, get dressed every day. When you look good, you feel good.
Shop your Closet
Choose your oufits like you’re shopping at your favorite store. You might shock yourself with the combinations you come up with.
Cook a Meal from Scratch
A homemade meal tastes so much better than anything store-bought or from takeout. You’ll know exactly what is in it and be able to pour love into it. That’s why it tastes better.
Use Quality Sheets
This is worth the splurge. The quality of your sleep affects literally everything about your waking life. Do whatever it takes to get good sleep.
Have a Glass of Wine or Champagne
Dealers choice here, but there is something about having a glass of wine while winding down for the weekend that breathes opulence into your routine.
Celebrate your Wins
Big or small you should celebrate your accomplishments.
Use a Silk Pillowcase
A silk pillowcase is great for your skin and hair because it keeps them moisturized and won’t pull on them causing wrinkles. Do you need another reason?
Write Thank You Notes
Bonus points if they are on personalized stationery. Taking a moment to express gratitude for someone doing you a kindness or service makes you appreciate it more.
Visit Museums and Art Galleries
This helps you get a feel for what kind of art you like and you can’t help but feel luxurious when you are surrounded by art.
Take a Walk
Fresh air and sunshine are good for you mentally and physically.
Use Lavender or Frankensence and Myrrh Pouches in your Drawers
You’ll get a whiff of a heavenly scent every time you open them.
Move your Body Daily
Your entire body will thank you for exercising in some capacity. You’ll be healthier and happier for it in the long run.
Drink Good Coffee or Tea
Having good coffee or tea at home makes a world of difference if you like them. Upgrading from drip coffee to an espresso maker or from bagged teas to loose-leaf is a game-changer.
Wear Nice Lingerie
I don’t know a single woman who doesn’t feel like a goddess in lingerie.
Have Nice Outfits to Wear at Home
You should not only look nice when you’re leaving the house. You see yourself at home so looking put together there helps your self-esteem.
Buy Fresh Flowers
Luxury hotels have them all the time. Why shouldn’t you have them on occasion?
Get your Nails Done
Having your nails look like perfection every day is an easy way to feel luxurious daily.
Use High Quality Beauty Products
Though the drug store products will usually work just fine, there is a dash of something special with luxury products. Plus you’re telling yourself that you are worth investing in.
Not only will this practice help you regulate your emotions, but it also helps you feel more in tune with what you want from life.
Journal Daily with your Morning Coffee
Journaling can help you set the tone for your day so settling in with a nice cup of coffee (or tea) can really get the self-inspired desires going.
Simplify your To-Do List
Having a long list of things to do every day creates stress. Spread your massive list out to help you not feel overwhelmed.
Go Out with your Friends
A fun night out with your girls is always a good time.
Clean Your House
It doesn’t sound fun, but a clean space is a happy space.
Enjoy Watching the Sunrise or Sunset
Seeing these daily phenomena makes you really appreciate living. The Earth is a life-sustaining work of art.
Use Cloth Napkins
They are much classier than paper and you can wash and reuse them.
Use Nice Tableware
Glass, ceramic, and porcelain cups, plates, and drinking glasses feel chicer. Having properly weighted flatware feels super chic too.
Learn How to Have a Good Relationship with Money
Whether you have a little or a lot, know the role money is supposed to play in your life and help it do that.
Move One Step Closer to a Goal
Do one thing that gets you closer to a goal. Having a sense of accomplishment and knowing that you did your future self a favor is a great self-esteem booster.
