This article is part of Home: Your New Basecamp – a new Kuju Journal series providing you tips, ideas and inspiration to help you Cultivate Rejuvenation at home during this new shelter-at-home era. #ForWhereverYouWander
It's important to take time in our lives for things that truly matter. Those things can be our family, friends, community, careers or school, but also ourselves. It's important to spend time everyday, restoring our mind and bodies, but maybe you are too busy during the day? Too distracted? In a Frump? So let's pair your daily coffee with restorative activity for 30 minutes each day. You will be happily surprised with the difference 30 minutes can make.
Spending time to wander with your own mind can lead you on a powerful journey of rejuvenation. Spending 30 minutes a day writing your own thoughts, goals, and ideas is a powerful tool to be able to cultivate and rejuvenate everyday at home. Grab a cup of pour over coffee, your journal, and find your favorite spot in the home. This spot should be uniquely yours, quiet and inviting. Some of our favorite spots at home include: outside on the deck or patio, a nook by the window during sunrise or sunset or on the couch with your favorite cozy blanket. Let this time and the caffeine take you on an adventure to explore and express yourself.
It is likely that at some point during your day you have got a glimpse of the news, googled the latest update or you have sat down to watch the morning or nightly news on TV. While being aware of the changing world is important, let's mix it up and bring some rejuvenation to the information we take in on a daily basis. In times of crisis, change, and uncertainty, humanity often comes together in the most beautiful ways. So let’s brew our favorite Kuju pour over coffee together and take a peak on some highlights from this week:

Read a Book
Now is the best time to enjoy a new book or reread one of your favorites. Reading will activate the mind and allow you to adventure into a great fantasy novel or teach us something new. Whatever your reading preferences are - take this time for yourself to be fully embraced in what you are reading. If you need help focusing, we of course, suggest having a great cup of coffee by your side.
The power of silence allows us to listen to ourselves. Our mind and body have a rhythm and in the silence we are able to listen more closely. Listening leads to understanding, comfort and acceptance which can propel us into a state of rejuvenation. Silence allows us to become aware of the present moment and our thoughts. With this silence we can help shape what and how we are thinking and reflecting on our surroundings. We understand just sitting in silence can be a challenge. That is where a great cup of pour over coffee can come into play and help ease the challenge this may first be.
Get the Creative juices flowing with a Kuju pour over coffee! Expressing your creative side through drawing or painting allows for release of ideas and to restore your energy and mind. Pick up the pen, pencil, crayon or paintbrush and allow yourself to embark on a creative journey for 30 minutes. You may be surprised by what you experience, feel, and express on paper – or find your hidden talent if you didn't think you were an artist.
From the Kuju Team to our KujuKin Community, we hope to inspire you to create a #KujuMoment that brings you cultivation and rejuvenation everyday.
