The new year is in full swing and the hustle is real! We feel like things have been firing on all cylinders non-stop and we are exhausted. It’s so important to take some time to step back, relax, breathe, and focus on yourself for a day! This will help you from reaching the point of burning out while also catering to your mental and physical health at the same time. Today, we’re sharing our top 5 ways that we love to recharge and pamper ourselves without leaving the house!
Diffuse Essential Oils
Diffusing essential oils is soooo good for you! They aid in sleep and relaxation, elevating your mood, preventing illness, making it easier to breathe, relieving pain, and more. Our top picks are lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint.
Give Yourself a Mani/Pedi
Having a fresh manicure makes us feel like we’re ready to take on the world! Are you the same way? Save yourself a little cash and give yourself a mani/pedi at home! Invite some girlfriends over and make a girls night of it. Right now, we’re digging deep, dark jewels tones for winter manis!
Take a Bubble Bath
There’s just something about sinking into a nice warm bubble bath that instantly relaxes you. Light some candles, grab a book, put on some soothing music, and sink into that hot foamy water to soak away your stress and problems.
Use a Moisturizing Face Mask
Keeping your skin well moisturized and hydrated is always important, but even more so in the winter! The cold, dry weather really does a number on your skin. Use a super moisturizing face mask to help repair and care for your skin. Follow it up with a great winter moisturizer and you’ll feel refreshed in no time.
Drink Hot Lemon Water
‘Tis the season of colds and flus. No one wants or has time to be sick! Our easy, natural (and yummy!) protectant? Hot lemon water! This easy drink is so soothing and helps with your immunity and digestion. Start your day with a tall mug and try to keep the habit up throughout your week. If you’re looking to add some more flavor, try a little bit of honey and/or ginger!
