No matter how old you get, it is still nice to get a treat when we have successfully done something that needed to be done. Unfortunately, life gets busy as you don’t always take the time do reward yourself and recoup after a long, hard week. This isn’t a healthy
habit to get into, and you should learn how to make time to reward yourself for all the hard work you do.
Using Essential Oils:
Although we may not pull out the rubber ducky, bath time is not just for kids. It can be a great way to unwind and relax after a stressful week. Aromatherapy essential oils
can be a great tool for your bath time. These essential oils come in many different scents such as Lavender and Chamomile. These aromas are know to send the brain little messages
to either cause the muscles in your body to relax or even to give you energy. Both energy and relaxation can give you that R&R to face the up coming week and all of its challenges.
A Few Hours at the Spa:
An hour or two out the house could be just what you need. Although you may have been out and about consistently chaffering children
or trips to the local market, it is important to get out and do something that is only for you. A perfect place to find a moment of rest could be at a local spa. Even when your pocket book does not allow you to get the full treatment even just a simple manicure or pedicure can do wonders for your self esteem.
Enjoy a Mini Shopping Spree:
Sometimes in our society we get so caught up in working to pay the bills that we never get to enjoy the benefits of working so hard. After a long hard week at home taking care of kids or working a full time job, use some of what you have earned and go buy something nice for yourself
. It does not have to be anything expensive; even just a brand new top or a pair of shoes you have been wanting can do the trick.
These three little things may not seem as though they won’t make much of a difference, but nothing could be further from true. Using these tricks can help your mind and body recuperate from a hard week. Sometimes it is important just to catch your breath. Society has instilled in us that it is important to always be busy doing something. However, that is not always the healthiest thing for our bodies. Take some special time to treat yourself, and remember that is okay to spoil yourself sometimes.
