Nothing compares to the pleasure of arriving home after a long day and taking a moment to relax. Looking after yourself is important, and it is crucial for your health and wellbeing to find the time to truly relax at the end of the day. However, wind-down time doesn't have to mean plopping onto the couch in front of the TV. If you're looking for some self-care inspiration, why not try one of these activities?
Take a Hot Bath
Enjoy soothing aromatherapy benefits by adding a few drops of lavender oil to your bathtub to relax your mind and body.
Go for a Walk Outside
Not only will you get some fresh air and exercise, but you'll also enjoy nature's beauty. If it's not possible to go outside, or if you prefer to stay indoors, try lighting our TAIGA candle - this candle is inspired by the forest, and its life-like scent of smoky woods and moss will transport you to a calm and peaceful place. So, if you can't get to the forest, let TAIGA bring the woods to you!
Read a Book
Curl up with your favorite book and forget about the world for a while.
Listen to Music
Calm your mind with relaxing music or listen to some upbeat beats to get re-energized for the rest of the day.
Write in a Journal
Let all of your thoughts and feelings out on paper to help clear your headspace.
Exercise or Dance
Taking time out for a workout can not only help relieve stress but helps you to feel good about maintaining your physical health.
Take Deep Breaths
Take a few deep breaths when you feel overwhelmed and focus on releasing all tension from your body.
Make A Cup of Tea
Prepare and enjoy your favorite tea blend and switch your mind to the present moment of savoring your delicious tea. If tea is not your thing, a light snack works too - one of our favourite wind-down treats are CBD gummies from JustCBD and Loxa Beauty.
Use an Interior Fragrance
Creating a calming atmosphere in your home with scent is another way to relax. Whether you choose a reed diffuser, room spray, or scented candles, make sure it's something that you enjoy smelling. Check out our IFRA-certified scented candles for inspiration.
This will require you to turn off your phone and email alerts and just focus on your breathing or on a single thought. Clearing your mind during meditation is like a reset button that helps bring you back to your center, and is a great way to reduce anxiety and feel the present moment.
