Relaxation Tips

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Welcome back loves! I've been MIA all of a sudden but I'm back. College is right around the corner and I decided to have a nice relaxing weekend before I start which led to my inspiration in this post. We all deserve a break/spa day, but sometimes we don't have the extra cash to enjoy a day, but I have an even better way to enjoy a relaxation day at home.

1. Yoga

Yoga is an amazing way to relax and have a little fun. Believe me in no way am I a yoga pro and I promise you I don't have one flexible bone in my body but even just following a long and trying you can still achieve the relaxing effects it has on your body. If you really aren't a fan of Yoga you can try a hobby you love that you never usually have time for. Personally I love doing Yoga even if I'm not the best at it.

Great yoga videos to do at home: 

2. Bath Bombs


Whether you make your own or buy some bath bombs are a great way to relaxing! Hot bath water will relax your muscles yet the pretty colors from the bath water are a joy to watch. I also find adding some soothing music, or even some of your favorite songs creates a very enjoyable time.  If you don't like baths or don't have a tub you can still relax by taking a hot/warm shower to still relax your muscles and use a nice exfoliating scrub like sea salt or even a good coffee scrub.

3.  Hair Masks/ Face Masks


Hair and face masks are such an amazing way to pamper your skin/scalp and make you feel fresh and moisturized. To be honest we have those days where we just don't care or are too tired to take care of our face and hair. I'm definitely guilty of it, but relaxation days can help with any area you may be slacking on taking care of. You don't always have to buy masks for your hair and face, there are many products you may have in your household you can use to create one, and they work just as good.

Some of my diy favorites:




4. Lighting your favorite candles


Candles are a great way to relaxing and can be placed almost anywhere in your house. You can even light a candle while you are enjoying a nice bath in the dark. I love candles but I can't enjoy them everyday when I get home, so I feel like whenever I light a candle it's just me time to enjoy my favorite fragrance. We all have different scents we love and it may take a few tries to find your favorite but once you do you'll want to light it everyday to relax. One of my all time favorites is Voluspa French Cade Lavender .

5. Painting your nails


Painting your nails is a great way to pamper yourself and relax. Turn on the tv to your favorite show or play your favorite music and enjoy painting your nails. You may think "how is painting my nails relaxing if I'm the one painting them?". It actually is calming because you aren't rushed and it's a relaxing motion while painting your nails. If it doesn't relax you, you can always go somewhere to get your nails done.



6. Go for a easy hike or nice walk

Hiking is a great way to relax yet leave your home and enjoy nature, and you don't have to go alone to relax think about taking your pup out to enjoy some fresh air as well. Staying at home is always nice but sometimes it can get a little boring and feel like you are trapped inside. Walks and a easy hike will still keep you calm and embrace nature. Sometimes we are so surrounded by other things going on in our lives that just even staring at a nice scenery really makes us grateful for what is around us.


Remember, we all need a relaxing day, so treat yourself to one. You will feel a million times better and you don't even have to touch your budget with doing some of these ideas.
