Stress can come in many different ways throughout various times in the day. Depending on your threshold for dealing with stress, it can build up in you for a while before you start feeling overwhelmed.
This situation is far from ideal, as you would want to have a clear mind and relaxed body in order to perform at your optimal best each day. That’s why it’s important that you carve out time to take care of yourself.
Going to the spa should sound nice, but the cost does add up, and sometimes you really just don’t have the time to make the appointment. Don’t give up, though, because there is an alternative solution to that.
If you can’t bring yourself to the spa, then bring the spa to you! Here are some surefire ways you can get that well-deserved Me time at the end of the day, thanks to your own SPAce.
Bath Bombs Away - The fastest way to melt all that stress away is to take a long, relaxing soak in the tube. Whether you read a book or take a quick nap, it’s surely nice to get off your feet for a change and just let your entire body be comforted by the calming waters.
Make the experience even better by dropping in a bath bomb or two, or three, so you can simultaneously have some much needed aromatherapy.
Add a Fountain - Another water element that you can have in your room to help you relax deeper is a small indoor fountain. There are those that can be decorative atop the table or hung on the wall, or bigger installations to be put on the floor.
The idea is that you can be soothed by the sounds of the running water, so you can put your mind at ease. Auditory signals such as this can also help in your grounding, allowing you to be better present in the moment instead of getting lost in your stressful thoughts.
Scent the Room - Another simple but tried and tested way of bringing the spa into your space is by bringing in the scent. For this, you can invest in fragrant oil diffusers to fill up the room with your preferred scent.
You can use different scents depending on your mood, but if rest and calm are what you’re after, then you should go for light, earthy scents like lavender, jasmine, rosemary, vanilla, and lemon.
Light A Candle - With a quick light of the wick, you can instantly convert your room into a spa. Aromatherapy candles are perfect for setting the mood, so it would definitely be a great addition to your space.
When lighting candles, make sure to keep them away from anything flammable like curtains or bed sheets. Also, make sure to trim the wick so that the flame doesn’t get too big. And most important of all, never leave a lighted candle unattended. If you think you’ve got the scent you want, then put the candle out. The scent will linger in the room for a while longer anyway.
