The hippie soul is free at heart, loves with wild abandon, and lives with passion. They don’t follow the rules and constraints of society and forge ahead making their own path. While every hippie soul has its own unique set of values and essentials, these five are a good place to start if you are new to the hippie lifestyle.
A Zen Sanctuary
Whether it’s for meditation, yoga, or just having a place to chill, every hippie needs a place designed to maximize their Zen. This spot could be anything from a dedicated room in your home, a cozy corner of the living room, or spot outside on the patio or under a tree. It’s your sanctuary it should reflect what calls to your soul. The same goes for decor, there no right or wrong way to decorate your Zen zone. Your favorite blanket, pillows, blankets, and art. Maybe some soft lighting or candles, plants, or incense. The possibilities are endless, just listen to your heart.

The hippie soul will not survive with out nature for long. From the beaches, to the mountains, to the desert oasis, and everything in between, time spent outdoors enjoying nature is what makes the hippie heart tick. That’s why you’ll often find yourself planning camping trips, organizing weekend hikes with your friends, or simply spending as much time as possible in your own backyard. A daily dose of nature is a must for the hippie soul to stimulate the heart, soul, and mind.
