Relaxing Bath - 1/2 hour for yourself atleast twice a week

Relaxing is part of your beauty = less stress = less health problems in the long run...

I love my down time. Downtime for some of us is the time after the kids go to bed and the husband passes out from a crazy, work day. Usually by this time some of us are exhausted. I believe all women need atleast twice a week of a "ME alone time." Some woman take their me time to read, paint, etc.

I want to encourage you to take more alone me time in the bathroom. Yes in the bathroom lol. Forget reading, painting or catching up on chores. That can wait. Try it atleast one time and I will show you how.


First Smell for me it's important. Take a moment for the bathroom to smell wonderful. Have a couple of candles you can pick from scents like rosemary, or lavender. It is important to dim the lights a little, if it is impossible because of your switch then you can set a colored cloth on top of the light. Pick a bathtub soaks or a bubble bath soap. Some soaks soothes aching bodies. Remeber to have the water very warm, but not hot that you get burned. Most of us know warm water relaxes muscles. Relax for 15 to 30 minutes. Just quiet, me time. I guarantee you the more you do it, the more you stay longer. You be surprised what your brains comes up with lol... 

This also works for people that have a hard time falling sleep. Try this and I bet u sleep like a baby!

What are other ways you relax? I want to know so leave a comment below :)

Thank you
