Make your favorite hot beverage of choice to start getting cozy AF. I love a nice cup of peppermint tea. If you’re not in the mood for a hot try making a detox water. Add some of your favorite fruits and flavors to your water. I like cucumber and mint. The longer you let the water soak the better but try to make it at least two hours beforehand.
Here are some combinations you can try:
Strawberry, cucumber, lime and mint
Lime, ginger root and basil
Lemon, raspberry and rosemary
Orange, blueberry and basil
I like to cleanup my house so I can wake up the next morning feeling really refreshed. I always wash my bed sheets because getting into clean bed sheets at night is my favorite thing. I’ll also give the house a quick vacuum and make sure all the dishes are done. Having a clean environment makes all of this feel even more luxurious.
I’m so obsessed with baths I take one almost every single night. If you don’t have a bathtub you can get a foot bath. I’m obsessed with Dr. Teals and I use their bubble bath and epsom salts. They are better than any of the fancy stuff at Sephora but they’re seriously cheap. I also like to burn some lavender oil in an essential oil burner and light some candles. I’m a huge fan of audible (go here to get two free audio books for signing up for a free trial). so I usually listen to a book while I soak. Right now I am reading You Are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth and I really recommend it if you’re looking for some financial motivation. While I’m in the bath I use a sugar scrub to exfoliate my skin.
Here’s an easy sugar scrub recipe:
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
I like to put on a movie to watch while I do a face mask and paint my nails. I like to use the nailpolish. I get it from walgreens but you can also order online. The have a good color selection and it’s cheap AF. I like to mix up a super simple face mask. Here are some super easy two ingredient face masks you can make for different skin types.
1 Tablespoon Turmeric
1 Table spook aloe vera
2 tablespoons ground coffee
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons yogurt
1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey
I like to make a really easy and healthy meal for dinner. I have a collection of recipes you can make to help anxiety and depression that you can get here. I like to make something light and healthy. This is my favorite simple salad recipe.
6 cups salad greens
1 red apple
1 green apple
1 cup chopped walnuts
⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese
⅓ cup dried cranberries
I like to top mine with balsamic-vinaigrette
