If it’s taking you a while to remember, then that means you’re due for a pamper sesh’ ASAP!
Many of us neglect taking time out for ourselves, because we’re just “too busy” or don’t have extra cash to spare for a spa day. But taking time for yourself shouldn’t have to cost an arm and a leg... or even involve you leaving the house!
Treating yourself to even just a few minutes of much needed relaxation a day, is absolutely not selfish and will help you to live a happier, less stressful life.
Don’t let stress reach a peak before you do something about it. These helpful daily tips are easy to incorporate into your everyday life and will help you to recharge your batteries on a daily basis so every day is a good one!
Focus on your breath
First things first, how are you breathing every day? Sounds like a strange question, but many of us tend to take shallow breaths from our chest that can increase feelings of stress.
Deep belly breaths take time to come naturally, but by practicing deep breathing every day, you soon won’t even have to think about it!
Deep breathing helps to stimulate new blood flow by massaging the lymphatic system, which in turn aids in flushing out toxins.
Don’t rush bath time
If your cleaning routine involves a 2 minute shower or a quick dunking in the tub then you need to keep on reading!
Your evening shower or bath is the perfect time to truly let go of the day and indulge in pure luxury, right in the comfort of your home.
In fact, in Japan, the bathing ritual is about so much more than just getting clean. It is a a rich, meditative experience that involves immersing your mind, body and spirit in the present.
