Caffeine is ubiquitous and even celebrated in our culture—from the usual coffee and tea, to soda and energy drinks like Red Bull—but it does not come without its side effects. In addition to causing uncomfortable jitters, it may also be the reason many people have a hard time getting great sleep.

It’s February, and love is in the air. Aside from Valentine’s Day and the focus on Eros, did you know the Greeks also identified several different kinds of love?
- Philia— Affectionate love, friendship
- Storge— Familial love
- Philautia— Healthy self love
- Agape— Selfless love committed to the well-being of others
Experts widely believe that our well-being requires a good balance of all of these, and when we think about where all that love happens, we must admit that home is where the heart is.
Creating a Home We Love
So what’s wool got to do with it? Wool creates a warm, healthy, casually luxurious and inviting atmosphere, perfect for you, family, friends, and whoever else may stop by. When we focus on building a home environment that feels as good as it looks, it helps us relax and recharge (Philautia) and from that place of centered self-care, we have more to share with others (Eros, Philia, Storge, and Agape).
The really cool thing about wool is that the sense of wellbeing we feel in these spaces comes from a deep place—it comes from a product that is grown right, from the roots of the grass the sheep eat through the shearing and wool preparation process through manufacturing and quality assurance through hand-making the items that grace your bed and your home. No chemicals, no allergens, no plastic, no toxins, no compromises, no worries.
As Marie Kondo reminded us with her KonMari Method™, “keep only those things that speak to the heart, and discard items that no longer spark joy.” And when we pause to consider how much our environments interact with our health and wellbeing, and in turn how our choices affect our planetary environment as well, bringing wool into our homes is an act of love for ourselves, our loved ones, and our Earth. We promise, a purchase from Shepherd’s Dream is a gift to yourself that will pass the KonMari test year after year.
