October 12th, 2017

If you’re anything like me, you tend to find yourself overly scheduled and so busy from time-to-time that it’s tough to figure out how to reset and reel it all in. Once you’re schedule gets out of control and you feel like you’re overly committed, stress levels quickly rise and figuring out a way to restore a sense of calm becomes essential. No matter what you have going on in your life, finding a few minutes each day to prioritize your own sanity is an absolute must. From something as simple as throwing on comfy clothes and taking a quick break to watch your favorite television show to having a bubble bath at the end of a long day, taking the steps to relax a bit each day will bring balance and calm to what can often feel overly hectic. Keep reading for my favorite ways to keep it all in check.

4 Steps to a More Relaxed You

Soak in a hot bath at the end of a long day. Sounds so simple, right? It’s one of the easiest things you can do for yourself and also one of the best. Super relaxing and also great for tired muscles, add some lavender Epsom salt to the bath and your relaxation levels will skyrocket…jump right in bed after that and you’ll feel so well-rested the next day.

Curl up in your favorite pj’s and bathrobe. There’s nothing quite as luxurious as curling up on the couch with a glass of wine or a big cup of tea at the end of the day. Add in your favorite pj’s and a super soft bathrobe and you have a match made in heaven. Pull up with a good book, a stack of magazines or some weeknight T.V. and you’ll thank yourself for focusing on being the best relaxed you there is.

Just Say No. Sometimes that’s the most difficult thing you can do. When people are asking you to spend time with them or make commitments to events and other things, sometimes you just have to skip out. Taking time for yourself to simply relax at home is just as important as all of the various activities you’re involved in each day. Don’t feel bad or guilty – just be confident in picking and choosing exactly what works for you and your schedule.

Try a sleep machine. Soothing sounds from nature, rain, the city – you name it – can really help you relax in the best way possible. Try using a sleep machine to wind down at the end of each day – you’ll be amazed at how quickly you fall asleep and how rested you find yourself the next morning.
