It’s the beginning of a new year! That means a new chance to make this one the best year of your life.
It’s important to take some me-time every now and again to prevent that New Year’s burnout that so often presents us from reaching our goals! If you need to recharge, follow this guide to the ultimate self-care relaxation night.
#1 Choose a Calming Activity
The first step to any fulfilling self-care night is finding a calming activity that you know brings you joy. This is not the time to try and pick up a new skill, as that can often require a lot of concentration and end up frustrating if you don’t get it on the first try.
This can be anything! Consider reading, taking a bath, knitting, drawing, cooking, or even just watching your comfort TV show. Whatever it is, be sure it’s something that makes you happy.
#2 Light a Candle and Set the Ambiance
Now it’s time to set the scene. The most quintessential ingredient to “me-time” is dimming those harsh overhead bulbs and lighting a candle (or five!). Whether it’s a candle like “Spa Day” that uses the creaminess of coco butter and musky notes of cedar wood to emulate a relaxing day at the spa, or “In the Mood” which combines warm vanilla and elegant plum to set the mood, choose a scent that calms the body and sparks joy!
#3 Pamper Yourself
Use this night to pamper yourself in a way you don’t often get to. Try a new face mask, paint your nails, or take a long hot shower where you exfoliate everything and do a full hair routine. These steps towards looking your best will also have you feeling your best!
