Why your home is about to be the hottest wellness destination
Well+Good editors have seen the future, and it’s illuminated by salt lamps, warmed by faux sheepskin rugs, and smells like Palo Santo. Our homes are becoming the new heart of wellness—it’s no longer something that just happens in fitness studios and juice bars.
For this W+G Talk, we’ll be exploring the style components of healthier living spaces, from crystals and plants to home cleaning products and mattresses (both exploding categories) that provide the same level of transparency as people want from their food and skin care.
Joined by wellness and design experts who will explain the intersection of wellness and the home, they’ll share how to next-level your space. You’ll learn tangible tips for styling your wellness sanctuary from conscious designer Shelly Lynch-Sparks (who created the the MNDFL meditation studios), healthy home detox pointers from Sophia Gushee (like a super vital WiFi kill switch), and practices to spiritually cleanse your space from Deborah Hanekamp (AKA Mama Medicine).
