National Relaxation Day
Today is National Relaxation Day!
National Relaxation Day encourages us to slow down and unwind. It's a day to focus on taking care of ourselves and take a moment to relax. National Relaxation Day is an important day as we all need a break from the fast-paced and often hectic lifestyles we live.
For me, being pampered with a facial, pedicure, and a massage is the ultimate day of relaxation. Throw in some spicy margaritas, anything other than a kid’s movie on the TV, and I am a happy gal!
I went on social media and asked others what they liked to do to relax and here were some answers I received:
*Drink red wine
*Listen to great music
I remember when I talked to Jessica Butler on the podcast, we talked about a blog post she wrote for Raise Magazine titled the Top 10 Self-Care Products For Moms In Quarantine. I thought this would be great to share on National Relaxation Day!
Here are a few of the self-care products she recommends:
Dr Teal's Pure Epsom Salt Soothe & Sleep Lavender Soaking Solution-
A game changer for bath time. You can also use unscented bath salts and essential oils.
Homemade Face Mask-
Mix honey, cinnamon, and lemon juice together until you have a paste-like consistency. Use it as a face mask for 20 minutes, and your face will legitimately glow. Better than any mask I've ever bought.
Grab some live eucalyptus from the grocery store and tie to your shower head. You'll get a eucalyptus steam shower for 4 weeks straight, and nothing beats it.
Now, go and celebrate! You must!
