For sure, taking a bath is something you have done before (well, could be not), but it is something we do every day and became routinely that we don’t think of making it special anymore. You just fill your tub with water, grab soap or bath gel, then rinse off and you’re good.
Turn your home into a spa!
Who does not dream of a weekly getaway to the spa? Everyone does for sure, but not all can afford the spa treatment. However, we may not be able to bring ourselves to the spa as often as we want but we can definitely bring the spa to our home. How? Be resourceful and creative with an economic mind. Buy yourself some affordable but good quality bath salts or bath bombs, make your scented candles, your beauty mask and pick some flowers in your garden. There are endless ideas you can do to turn your home into a gorgeous spa, not to mention, YouTube where there are tons of DIY inspirations.
Choose the perfect bath essentials!
High-quality and natural bath bombs or salts can take away years off your looks by helping your body protect against the harsh climate and UV exposure, eugenics, and other factors that increase the aging process. Also, natural salts can help your skin revive, nourish and restore its youthful glow and the vitality of the cells, addressing the real signs of aging such as uneven skin tone or fine lines. For the best results, add some essentials oils to your bath essentials.
Just before you dive into your tub, make sure that the lighting is soft and adequately low. You can either dim the lights and then accentuate and enhance the vibes by lighting candles along or near the rim of your tub (scented candles are a fantastic choice). What is more delightful with your favorite, music playing? So, don’t forget to prepare your playlist as early now. Well, later after reading this!
Make it an alone time!
Take this chance to have a quality time for yourself. Either entirely or partially close the curtain or the door. This does not only help you achieve that quality alone time and the tranquillity that you wish, but this will also contribute to maintaining the temperature and scent of the room. But of course, you can always enjoy this experience with someone.
Take your time!
Live in the moment and don’t rush, enjoy! Come on! You need this more than anything. You have to give time to yourself and just forget about everything that gives you stress (remember those fine lines and wrinkles). Anyways you don’t need to do this every day; once a week will do. It may not be easy to just forget about all the reports, projects, deadlines and the bills even just for 5 minutes but you’ll get used to it. Promise, this will help you get a fresh and bright mind to handle all of these after.
