This momma is ready for the 3 day weekend that is coming up. Even though this is a short week, it feels long for some reason but I am glad to be starting the eve of my 3 day weekend off with self care. I wrote a while back about how taking time out for a spa day/night can help to reduce stress. It’s interesting how stress can cause damage to the body.
Spa day/night can be inexpensive and effective. It is as simple as getting your favorite relaxing products and creating a peaceful and soothing space. I love the zone I get in when I light my favorite candle, turn on relaxing music, put Epsom salt & lavender oil in my water or bath bombs, fav cup of deliciousness, my fav body wash and lotion and just relax and get lost in the moment of doing and feeling nothing.
I don’t think about to do lists or what needs to be done. I get to participate in a pleasant distraction from everyday life without any guilt. I love the way I feel after I have lost myself in spa night. I know my body loving me because I am giving it something it needs. Rest and relaxation. When I am finished, I feel calm, refresh and relax.
Added bonus is to place a couple drops of lavender essential oil on your pillow before bed. It helps you sleep. What are some ongoing solutions you participate in for self care?
