Life has become more stressful these days. With so much going on in our country and the world, it’s important that we take care of our health – both, physical and mental. It does not require a lot of money to de-stress. Since you are already at home most of the time, now’s the perfect opportunity to focus on your wellness.
Get Set and Relax
Physical wellness would often require exercise and a healthy diet. On the other hand, for you to have a more stress-free life, a less active day is needed. That does not mean though that you will not do anything. What you can do is to recreate a spa experience right in your own home. The main objective? To relax.
When asked what activities are done to relax at home, having a bath is an answer given by many. You can just take a bath, but you can make it even better by transforming an ordinary bath to a spa-like experience by adding a few extra touches.
Preparing a warm bath is not enough. You can make it better by lighting scented candles or using essential oils. There are many scents to choose from depending on what effect you want to achieve. Some of the more popular ones are lavender, chamomile, eucalyptus, rosemary and rose. These all have a soothing and calming effect.
A Natural Experience
You can also bring in a bit of greenery inside the bathroom and add a little soothing music. It can be likened to a forest bath that allows you to enjoy the scents and sounds as well as the visuals of nature. Such spa experience is popular in many countries like Japan in which they would enjoy the onsen or hot spring while basking in the beauty of nature. It can be a truly therapeutic experience.
Aside from the relaxation that you can enjoy, it will also soothe your tired muscles and calm your mind. After you bathe, you can extend your peaceful experience by applying essential oils or creams on your body and massaging them in. In some cases, you can even apply them to your hair and the face including your beard. They will moisturize and soften the skin as well as your hair, thus, making you feel even better.
Peace and Quiet
After your bath, make sure that you also hydrate yourself by having a cup of tea. There are many that can help you to maintain that calm feeling such as jasmine or chamomile tea. Herbal teas also can help detoxify your body.
There is no need to hurry after that. You can just sit in a corner and savor that feeling of peace and quiet. You can just close your eyes and breathe in all that positive energy. Then breathe out all the negativity for a more well-rested you. Just the right spa at home experience to de-stress...
