Between work, kids, school and social activities, bills, and traffic, it’s safe to say that many of us could use a relaxing vacation. A spa retreat with our besties or significant other. Of course, a spa weekend can rejuvenate the body, mind, and spirit, but it can also be pricey. So, what do you do when you could use a wellness retreat but lack the time and funds? Why not turn your home into your own wellness retreat for the weekend?
Turning your home into your very own spa retreat takes a bit of planning, but it will be so very worth it.
Here are 5 things to transform your home into your own spa retreat:
Stock your cabinets and refrigerator with healthy sips and noshes. Think fresh and luxurious. Cut up snack sandwiches and have lots of fresh fruit and veggies. Buy your favorite sparkling beverages and don’t forget to break out your best glasses.
- Make pitchers of infused water for that true spa feeling.
Slice lemons, limes, strawberries, cucumbers or watermelon and add them to the pitchers of water and ice several hours before.
- Have plenty of fresh-cut flowers around in vases.
Surround yourself with beauty and wonderful floral scents.
- Dig those slippers or flip-flops out.
If you are planning this for a few friends, get matching slippers and line them up at the door for a fun arrival.
- Slice cucumbers or buy a few gel eye masks to refresh those tired eyes.
As you sit for 15 minutes in a sunny spot, you can kick your feet up and feel those under-eye bags start to unpack.
- Schedule a relaxing therapeutic massage at Elements Massage® to cap off the day.
When this day is over, you will feel like a new person, ready to take on the week ahead. Making time to take care of ourselves makes us better parents, partners, and employees, so you may just have to schedule one of these days every month!
