If you’re having a long week at the office or feel more stressed than usual, here’s a friendly reminder to make time for self-care.

Self-care is any activity that, when done intentionally, helps you take care of your emotional, mental, and physical health. While self-care preferences vary from person to person, here are a few of our favorite ideas!

Turn your bathroom into a sauna.

Steam up your bathroom by running a hot bath or shower with a spritz of Mint-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist (or Menthol-Infused ShowerMist for a refreshing mojito scent). Lounge around in your favorite robe and let the fresh steam help you relax.

Ditch the screens and read a good book.

When’s the last time that you sat down and read a novel or magazine? If it’s been so long that you don’t remember, this tip is for you! Grab that book you’ve been meaning to finish and read a few chapters.

Wind down with some slow stretches.

Grab your yoga mat and enjoy some gentle stretches like Child’s Pose, Knees to Chest, or Reclined Twist. Use our Eucalyptus + Lavender Yoga Mat cleaning spray after you’re done to keep your mat smelling fresh and clean.

Head to bed early and get some good rest.

It’s tempting to stay up late to catch up with your friends on Facebook or the watch the TV shows you missed this week, but why not turn the lights out early and get a few more hours of sleep? Netflix will be there when you wake up – we promise.
