We know, going to the spa is a fantastic experience. Turning down a spa day is like turning down a slice of cake, except instead of sparing yourself the extra calories, you’re not avoiding anything harmful but the fees. Spa days minus the cost are awesome, and depending on what you’ve got at home— even if for a minimal fee, you can create your spa day.
Home for the Spa Day
If you’re looking around your place wondering how that could be possible, worry not. A little pinch of spa essence can go a long way. You’d be surprised how much lighting and wafts of lavender can transform a space. Yes, warm towels, isolation, and other spa practices sure help as well, but the key to making your home into a relaxing spa environment?
Your Mindful Spa
It’s actually in your mind. Being mindful, present, and putting yourself elsewhere mentally is how you’ll make it happen. Sure, a spa is physically elsewhere, but guess what? You could spend hundreds and still sit in knots in a spa chair because of an inability to disconnect with the world around you to connect with yourself.
Why Caring for Yourself Matters
Taking time to care for yourself is so necessary. Setting up a spa at home is something you can do at your leisure to put in the time and effort to care for yourself. It’s a good way to connect with yourself physically, mentally, and even emotionally.
You’d be surprised what can surface when you even the field with yourself. Alternately, a lack of self-care can lead to opposite effects like poor feelings, mental state, and other physical and psychological difficulties.
So set that phone to airplane mode and unplug. Men, this includes you, too. If you can’t do it in the comfort of your own home, where can you do it? The best part—no one is kicking you out because they’re closing. Give it a go.
