In our modern world, we often find ourselves glued to our screens, losing touch with the meaningful connections that make life so rich and full. But what if we told you that you could bring a piece of the Freewyld magic home with you, creating unforgettable experiences and deep connections without the need for screens or technology?

At Freewyld, our mission is to reconnect people with what truly matters. Our vacation experiences are meticulously crafted to inspire conversation, connection, and stories. The Freewyld lifestyle isn’t just confined to our properties; you can easily incorporate it into your everyday life, turning ordinary moments into extraordinary memories.

#FreewyldFridays: A Screen-Free Hour or Evening

Dedicate your Fridays, or at least an hour of it, to a screen-free experience. Disconnecting from your devices allows you to be truly present with your loved ones, opening up the possibility for meaningful conversations and deeper connections.

Here are some ways you can spend your #FreewyldFridays:

  • Host a family or friends game night with classic board games or card games.
  • Have a storytelling session where everyone shares their favorite memories or stories.
  • Take a walk in nature, and immerse yourself in the beauty of the world around you.

Prepare a Meal Together

There’s something special about coming together to create a delicious meal. It’s not just about the food; it’s about the laughter, conversations, and shared experiences that happen in the kitchen.

Here are some ideas for your next meal preparation:

  • Host a themed dinner night, like a taco bar or a pizza-making party.
  • Try making a dish from a different culture, and learn about their traditions and customs.
  • Have a potluck-style meal, where everyone brings their favorite dish to share.

Nostalgic Jam Session

Music has the power to transport us back in time, bringing back a flood of memories and emotions. Have a nostalgic music session where everyone takes turns picking songs from their past, and sharing the memories and stories attached to each song.

Here are some tips for your music session:

  • Create a playlist ahead of time, and have each person contribute their favorite nostalgic songs.
  • Take turns sharing why you picked each song, and what it means to you.
  • Don’t forget to have a dance party, letting the music move you and bring joy to the moment.

Thought-Provoking Questions

Conversations can often be superficial, but with the right questions, you can delve into deeper, more meaningful discussions. Have a session where you ask each other thought-provoking questions, opening up the floor for vulnerability and connection.

Here are some questions you can ask:

  • What is your favorite childhood memory?
  • What is something you’ve always wanted to learn or try?
  • What is the most challenging experience you’ve had, and how did it shape you?

#GirlDinner With Friends

Gather your girlfriends and have a #GirlDinner, where you create a beautiful charcuterie board together. (No cooking required.) It’s not just about the food; it’s about the laughter, conversations, and shared experiences that happen around the board.

Here are some tips for your charcuterie board:

  • Include a variety of cheeses, meats, fruits, and nuts.
  • Get creative with your presentation, using different textures and colors to make the board visually appealing.
  • Don’t forget the wine or a non-alcoholic alternative like sparkling water with fruit garnish.

Bring Nature Indoors

One of the key features of Freewyld properties is the connection to nature. Bring that magic home with you by incorporating natural elements into your home décor.

Here are some ways you can bring nature indoors:

  • Add indoor plants to your living space, creating a calming and refreshing atmosphere.
  • Use natural materials like wood, stone, and fibers in your home furnishings.
  • Incorporate nature-inspired colors and patterns into your décor, like shades of green, brown, and blue.

Practice Mindfulness and Presence

In our busy lives, we often forget to take a moment to just be. Practice mindfulness and presence, allowing yourself to fully experience the moment without any distractions.

Here are some ways you can practice mindfulness:

  • Take a few minutes each day to meditate or practice deep breathing.
  • Incorporate mindfulness activities into your daily routine, like mindful eating or walking.
  • Be fully present with your loved ones, actively listening and engaging in conversations without distractions.

Create a Cozy Atmosphere

The cooler temperatures of fall and winter are the perfect time to create a cozy atmosphere in your home. Light some candles, put on your favorite playlist, and snuggle up with a good book or movie.

Here are some tips for creating a cozy atmosphere:

  • Use soft, warm lighting like fairy lights or candles.
  • Add blankets and pillows, creating a comfortable and inviting environment.
  • Incorporate cozy textures like knits, faux fur, and velvets into your home décor.

In conclusion, you don’t have to be on vacation to experience the magic of Freewyld. By incorporating these simple yet meaningful activities into your everyday life, you can create unforgettable memories and deepen your connections with your loved ones. So, put down your devices, and experience the beauty and magic that surrounds you.
