Do you have trouble winding down after that hectic day?

Or maybe you have little ones at home, and have a hard time finding time for yourself?

You may not have time or the funds to travel the World’s Most Prestigious Spas, but you can relax in the comfort of your own home.

Here are 5 Easy Ways to Unwind at Home.

1.) Family Spa Night.

One of my friends actually inspired this idea. You can do pedicures at home with the whole family, set up chairs and soak your feet. Complete “Do it yourself at home pedicures” how to here .  You can also do mini facials, or both! Have your little helpers mix up a homemade masque for you. {Recipes for masques here}. You set out the ingredients for the masque and sliced cucumbers for the eyes. They mix it up. Kids would love putting “MUD” on their parents faces!

2.) Enjoy a good cup of Tea.

Even if you’re not a big tea drinker, a large cup of hot tea before bed does wonders. I don’t usually drink tea, however when I need to unwind, a big cup of Peppermint or Chamomile Tea with a few drops of honey, always hits the spot.

Did you know that there have been studies done proving that Peppermint and Chamomile are huge stress relievers?

It works!

3.) Romantic Bath time with Your Significant Other.

This doesn’t have to be a sexual time {it can be of course… but that is up to you}. The point is total relaxation. My husband and I do this on a regular basis, and it does wonders for you soul. I swear. We light candles, play spa music, and sit and talk until we’re pruney. Sometimes we talk about serious things, and sometimes it’s very intimate. It really just depends on both of our moods. Either way, bath time is always a success. We are both extremely relaxed and always feel wonderful after, which of course is the perfect end to a hectic day.

4.) Make Lemonade Cucumber Spa popsicles {recipe here}. They taste so good you’ll being dreaming of what it would be like if you were at a spa… well at least for the moment :)

5.) Last but not Least… SCHEDULE ME TIME!!

But chances are if you are reading this, you have no “me time”. Because as parents we all know there is no such thing.

If you are unable to spare even a minute for yourself daily, then at least go out and purchase a bottle Lavender oil and put a dab on your pillow at night. A wonderful way to calm your mind.   Read more about the benefits of Aromatherapy here.

{and don’t forget to breathe….Enjoy your Sunday!}

Here is a great quote that inspires me to be positive:

“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.”  ~Leo Buscaglia
