lately I’ve had a hard time turning my brain off at night.
to say there is a lot going on would be a severe understatement.
a nightly lavender epsom salt bath has been my savior. paired with candlelight, a notebook for my thoughts, and [once a week] a clay mask for my face.
[find epsom salt in your grocery store's bath section or here].
the do’s + don’ts
do: light candles & turn off all artificial light.
don’t: bring your phone with you. [it won't do well in water & you want to eliminate outside distractions].
do: play soft music or be in silence. whatever is more relaxing for you.
do: 20 minutes of complete + total brain drain. for some that’s eyes closed, silence. for others, its escaping in a book. or maybe, it’s writing out your thoughts. mine is a combination of all three. so find what works for you.
don’t: tell yourself you can’t find time to escape for a few minutes ..
the weekend is nearly upon us. and my first bridal shower. woo hoo.
