Spas are refreshing and we often schedule spa dates when we want to pamper ourselves, distress and re-energize. Our perception of a spa is a place that is soothing, where you can come, relax and forget your problems for a period of time.
Since we cannot afford the luxury of visiting spas every day because it just isn’t cost-effective, the best way to solve this essential self-care problem is by creating the spa experience at your home.
By turning your bathroom into your mini spa, you create a relaxing sanctuary that you step into every day. This makes your everyday tasks easier – because you start your day with a relaxing bathroom experience and end your day with that same experience when you get home.
Below we have listed fun and easy ways to make your bathroom feel like a spa:
- Leave a candle in your bathroom:
The act of putting a candle on before you soak yourself in the bath after a long day sets the pace for relaxation. Having a candle burning in your bathroom while you soak yourself in the bathtub helps ease your stress. It is also important that you use candles that contain essential oils. Candles that contain essential oils have aromatherapy benefits that will medically help you reduce stress and manage anxiety and agitation.
- Have your Towels exposed and folded neatly:
Something just as simple as having your towels neatly folded and kept in the bathroom will make a world of difference in elevating your mood. So bring all those towels out of the closet (if that’s where you’ve been hiding them) and display them neatly in your bathroom.
- Bring the Outdoors In
Nature is the ultimate calmer. Having plants in your bathroom provides an escape from your busy everyday life. Moreover, plants help rid the air of chemicals which in return aids your breathing while you relax in the bathroom.
By incorporating these three things in your bathroom, you create a mini spa for yourself without even realizing it. Every day can be a little spa experience when you focus on some much-needed self-care.
