Booking a salon visit or scheduling a staycation sounds amazing, but it can be difficult to arrange especially during a hectic workweek. Here are a few of our best recommendations for how to destress in the comfort of your own home.
Sometimes stress builds up in the body even while we’re doing nothing at all. Restlessness is often common with a busy work schedule, so channeling that energy is key. Try to unwind by getting up and moving your body. A quick 30 min indoor yoga session can fuel your body with an endorphin high and help melt away that unwanted stress.
Meditation and Clean Breathing
It is easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and forget to reconnect from within. The next time you find some alone time, even if it’s just for a few minutes, sit in silence with your eyes closed. Focus on generating deep, consistent and intentional breathing. We suggest lighting one of our Skylar Candles – free of parabens and sulfates to create the ultimate at-home oasis.
Perfect your craft
If meditation and staying still isn’t your thing, an alternative is taking up a hobby that requires focused attention on a rhythmic task. Hobbies such as knitting, coloring, photography are great ways to wind down the day and have been shown to decrease stress and improve mental health.
Girls Night In
What better way to relax than a spa day with your best girlfriends? Take the stress out of planning a trip to the salon by hosting your own day spa in the comfort of your home. Bring out the candles, Skylar Rollies and sweet treats- your moments of serenity and bliss await.
