Take Care of You: Spa-ify Your Home

December 7th, 2011 | Natural Remedies

Why waste time? Here’s how you can turn your home into your own personal spa for the day to help ease the tension this holiday season.

Step 1. Tell your friends and family that you’re doing a spa day. Not so they can join — you can invite them if you want — but so that they know not to bother you.

Step 2. Pick a room that will be all yours for an hour or two. If you have a bathtub, the bathroom is a great choice, but any room with a closing door will do.

Step 3. Get every candle in your home and bring them to that room.

Step 4. Create a playlist of your favorite relaxing music and set up something to play it, whether it be your mp3 player, a cd player or a record player, just something that can play music.

Step 5. Collect your favorite things or pictures that make you happy and place them all around you. Surround yourself with things that bring you joy in your life.

Step 6. Light the candles. Draw a bath (add a couple drops of lavender essential oil and some honey to boost the relaxation) or if you’re in the living room, snuggle up with your favorite pillow, turn the music on, lay back and relax. Make the playlist a specific length of time so when the music stops, you can calmly  re-enter the real world and get back to being the superhero that you are.

It’s not hard to come up with ways to relax. Sometimes, it simply takes someone laying it out for you and saying, “You deserve this break.”

Some soothing elements to help relax and bring balance to your mind and body: Lavender, coconut, green apples, roses, geraniums, almonds.

Tips from Aidance Fans

“Drink tea, exercise, take some time to hang out with yourself, listen to good music with good food, good wine and good company… they are my foolproof tips ;D” — Rachel

“Deep breathing.” — Chris

“To help manage stress, take some personal time to relax with some tea, read a book or do yoga. Personal time is always needed to balance the everyday pandemonium of life.” — Courtney

“Sit down and make a list. Not a list of to dos, but a list of likes. All of your favorite foods, flowers, places you would like to see, smells you like, favorite books. No negatives only things that spark nice memories of just goofy stuff. I try to make it a list of 12. I seem to focus in on random positive things and it resets my brain to put things in perspective.” — Gretchen
