Finding Time to Pamper Yourself
by: Donna McAlister
As women we are always putting ourselves last. We cater to the needs of our ailing parents, our significant others, and our kids; but by the time we get around to ourselves it is either to late in the day or we are just to exhausted.
Well I am here to tell you that we can find time for ourselves, by including ourselves in our daily schedules we can begin to relieve the stress associated with the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Hear are just a few suggestions for Finding Time to Pamper Yourself:
1 – Create a spot in your house where you can have “ME” time. Once you have created you “ME” time spot. Set aside daily time to meditate, read a good book, watch your favorite show, or just have some quiet time, if even for a few precious minutes a day.
2 – Create a spa experience in you bat tub. Use your favorite bath tea or bath salt in you bath water, light some candles and listen to some soft soothing music such as Jazz.
3 – Treat yourself to a weekly spa treatment. Many of these you can do at home yourself such as facials, body polishes, manicures, and/or pedicures.
4 – Invite your girlfriends over for a spa party. There are many companies that are now bringing the spa experience into customer’s homes and offices. Do an internet search on spa parties and contact the ones that interest you.
5 – Light a lavender candle or spray a lavender scented mist in your “ME” area during your scheduled “ME” time. Lavender helps to create a calming and uplifting effect.
By following the above listed suggestions you will in no time begin to feel de-stressed and re-energized.
