Tis the season for fun with friends, long walks outside, and weekend getaways! I already see my schedule filling up, and while I am excited about what’s ahead – I can see my fuel tank depleting quickly.
I’m sharing a few of my decompression tips – ideal for anytime of year, but especially now as the days warm up and calendars crowd.
- Create morning space. Opt for a wake up just 15 minutes before you normally would (even if you try just a couple days a week). Give yourself some extra time to sip coffee slowly and soak in the day. Shift from a hectic hustle to a slow start.
- Find some lavender. Lavender oil is magical in any season but particularly useful for a calming effect. Apply a drop or two on your feet before bed or diffuse some throughout the day.
- Get some air. When you find yourself caught up – in any busy moment – try and find some outdoor time. Sunlight recharges your serotonin and wakes up the senses.
- Fill the tub. For the best source of calm, fill up that bath tub! Choose epsom salts and a drop of lavender or peppermint, and enjoy the healing effects of water.
