In the whirlwind of daily life, finding time for ourselves often takes a backseat. However, embracing moments of calm and self-care doesn’t need to be complicated. With just a couple of simple activities you can discover the joy of a mini retreat at home.
Take a Long Luxurious Bath
A warm bath can work wonders for your mind and body. Turn your bathroom into a sanctuary by dimming the lights, lighting some candles, and adding a few drops of essential oils to the water. The soothing combination of warm water and calming scents can help you unwind and release tension.
Tips for the Perfect Bath:
· Add Epsom salts for muscle relaxation.
· Bring a book or play your favourite calming music.
· Prepare warm fluffy towels for when you get out of the bath.
Treat Your Body with Real Whole Foods
Nourishing your body with wholesome foods is a fundamental aspect of self-care. Opt for fresh, unprocessed ingredients that not only satisfy your taste buds but also contribute to your overall well-being. Consider creating a simple yet nutritious meal, turning the act of eating it into a mindful and enjoyable experience.
How to Make a Nutrient Rich Meal:
· Incorporate some homemade veg-based juices.
· Use real-foods, not ones that come with an ingredients list.
· Choose whole grains to provide sustained energy throughout the day.
