Best Happy Hour Spa Treatments

The Stress Level this week was Off “The Charts”.. you too???… Are you  looking for the BEST AT HOME SPA TREATMENTS?
Sit back relax you’ve come to the right place…..I gotcha covered! 

Is it one of those weeks that between family and work responsibilities, you think you are “losing your mind”? Have you had a day or a week like that? I have this week I’ve had several meltdowns, but that’s what friends are for, they talk to you down from the ledge.😊

With that being said, it can be easy to forget to take some time out of the week (or day) for ourselves.

I love having my arsenal of at-home Spa Day Recipes close at hand.   After the week I had I didn’t just walk over and get them I ran, did you hear me I RAN to get these recipes. LOL 

Some days saying that this is a stressful time is an understatement. It is stressful both in mind and  body.  

So today I thought I would share some things I have learned that have helped me and if you try them I guarantee you that it will give you some inner peace.  I have covered ALL bases and then some… Some are really really GOOD! You be the Judge…let me know what was Your FAVORITE! 

Stress Test

When stress strikes, self-care takes a backseat…. during any stressful period in our lives, we tend to focus on all the things going on around us.

Taking the time to dote on ourselves is more important than ever. I know what you’re thinking, it’s just another added thing to my list. But believe me this is one you want to put on your list. This will help with mental clarity and more importantly your sanity. At times, I believe has left the building.LOL.  I know mine has …… I thought I would put together a few things that have helped me and I know can help you slow the pace down.


At Home Spa Treatments

This takes practice and don’t be discouraged if your attention span is short. We’re trying to train ourselves to slow down. However long you can hold these thoughts, counts. 

It is the little steps that lead to our accomplishments. “You’ve got this My Friend!” 

1.  Find A Comfortable Seat

A comfortable seat would be a chair, a pillow on the floor or better yet outside taking in nature.  If you have a yoga mat, all the better. If you would like to look at yoga mats or floor pillows, you can view them here or here.

2. Sit Still

This sounds easy but I know at times it is hard to do. I speak from experience, you can do it sitting in a chair, on the floor or even while soaking in the tub. Ahhhhh. Now close your eyes.

3. Still the MIND

Let your mind go blank. This one is a hard one, but you can do it! Even if you can only do this for 5 minutes today and increase it as you continue to practice. Practice! Practice!  

Let’s Get This Spa Started . .. .

This next part ends up being the best part and the most relaxing. Trust me….
