Sometimes you have to set aside some "me time" for yourself. Once a week, I like to do something that's strictly for the benefit of my mind, body, and soul. I turn off my cell phone so I can sit with my thoughts and feelings. It's a great time to reflect on my life, my celebrations, my goals, and my dreams. It's also a great time to figure things out if I'm having a problem, or if I need to make a decision.
One of my favorite things to do is soak in a tub - even though it's summer. I like to transform my bathroom into a make shift spa by using scented bath salts like these from Lunaroma. The scent of the essential oils relaxes and calm my mind, and the blend of Dead Sea Salt and Epsom Salt cleanses and detoxifies my skin. If I'm feeling extra stressed, I bring a glass of white wine in the bath with me and just shut my eyes and enjoy my quiet time.
Sometimes it's all about the simple pleasures like these that give me time to be alone with my thoughts, so when I experience stressful parts of my week, I feel emotionally ready to get through them. So ladies, how do you de-stress?
