After working hard, everyone deserves a break without disruption. There is nothing better than coming home after a busy day and relaxing into total bliss. On days when it feels overwhelming, just relax with these simple steps. You'll be on you're way to serenity in no time!
Finish all the things you had planned for the day that were essential for you to do
If you have something on your mind that's bothering you, it will be hard to relax and enjoy yourself. At the very least, make a list of the things to be dealt with later, so that you don't need to worry about forgetting.
Gather your supplies
If you enjoy music, you may like to create a relaxing playlist of music to listen to. Light some scented tea lights. Prepare your towels and pajamas. This will prevent running around to find a clean pair of jammies after relaxing. If you want wine, chocolates or anything else while in the bath, organize these too.
Start your bath
Adjust the temperature to your liking. Add bath salts and essential oils and maybe even bubble bath. Get a bath pillow or a rolled-up towel and prop your head on it. The bath is not meant to cleanse, but mostly to relieve tension, so if you need to wash your hair, shave, etc. It's better to do this before you begin. If you don't, you may feel stressed throughout the jacuzzi spa. Put on a face mask. If you want, put some teabags or cucumber slices on your eyes to reduce under-eye swelling. Put on lip balm. Get a deep-conditioning hair mask and let it sit for the remainder of the bath.
Turn on that relaxing music and light the candles
Lie back and read a book, have a glass of wine and some chocolate, or simply relax. It's all about relaxation. Candles for the bath are much more relaxing and better than having a bright light in your eyes. Stay in your bath for as long as you want.
