Find a private, calming space in your home. Make sure this space has easy access to a bathroom so that you can apply and remove spa treatments easily. Rid the space of clutter, bills, to do lists...anything that might make your mind wander to the stresses of work or life.
It’s time to turn your little space into a private, luxurious spa. Unroll a towel or yoga mat in the center of the space, put a comfy chair or pouf in the corner and tune into a soft, ambient music station. Stock your space with a timer to track spa treatments, lots of water, healthy snacks and maybe even a pot of caffeine-free tea. To promote relaxation, dim the lights and diffuseEucalyptus, Magnolia, Lavender. Use this opportunity to opt out of screen-time and arm yourself with a good read instead. Now you’re ready to start relaxing!
You’ve created the perfect space to relax in. Now it’s time to move your mind and body into a calmer state. You may not have a masseuse in your stay-in spa, but don’t underestimate the powerful relaxation that stretching can awaken. To find balance in your body, take the next ten minutes to gently pull yourself into a fewyin yoga poses. If stretching is uncomfortable for you, support areas of discomfort with pillows. As you do this, quiet your thoughts, focus on breathing and set your intentions for your spa time.
Choose a treatment for your hair, face or body. Remember that essential oils are powerful, and when it comes to application, less is more — listen to your body and apply products with care. Time your spa treatments so that you don’t leave any products on for too long. As you allow treatments to work, encourage yourself to enter a rhythm of relaxation: paint your nails, meditate or nestle into a comfy chair with a cup of tea and a book. Try not to leave your “spa space” for any reason — this is your time to unwind and take care ofyou!
We suggest kicking off your spa treatments with a hair mask, as these can take time to work effectively. Hair masks can improve the look and feel of your hair and even promote hair growth by increasing scalp circulation. Be sure to choose a mask based on your hair’s needs. If supplies are limited, simply applyArgan orCoconut carrier oil to your hair for silkier, nourished-looking locks.
