The pandemic is leaving a lot of people stressed and uptight. Though this may be a time of unpredictability, you can make peace with yourself and create something to look forward to in the house. Instead of spending your day working and scrolling overtime while practicing social distancing, plan a wellness afternoon. It’s time to isolate from the stressors of what is happening in the world and give yourself a healthy “pick me up.” Have a spa day within the comfort of your own home to kick off the week! Here are some ways you can create a spa-like ambiance in your home:
Step 1. Set The Mood.
Make sure your surroundings are tidy, and you don’t have to stare at that pile of laundry you’ve been avoiding for no reason. It’s impossible to relax when your to-do list is staring at you. Next, light a couple candles, run the bathtub, pour in some bubbles, and turn on some chill tunes. It’s all about the ambiance. If you really want to get crafty, sprinkle some rose petals & epsom salt in the bath, because let’s be honest…There’s nothing more luxurious than lounging in some rose water.
Step 2. Pour Yourself A Glass Of Wine.
This step is pretty self explanatory. Everyone knows the best way to unwind is with wine…Especially now that no one has to drive.
Step 3. Face Masks
Take your favorite face mask off the shelf. That one you never have enough time to throw on, yeah that one… Throw it on. Open up that book you’ve been meaning to start, and immerse yourself in the comforting bubbles. If you’re not much of a reader, or that just seems like too much work, put a calming meditation app on, close your eyes, and relax. Forget the fact that we are locked up indefinitely, and pretend you’ve booked an afternoon at the Four Seasons Spa.
