When is the last time you had a spa day? Do you remember how relaxed you felt after the last time you were pampered? Whether you love to indulge in a manicure, a full-body massage, or a hot bath at home, you know how powerful a little relaxation can be. What, you say you don’t have the time- or money- to visit the spa regularly? The good news is that you can boost your mood with less effort and fewer dollars. Check out these simple ways to add a little luxury to your week.
1. Homemade Spa Water - Adding fresh fruit and herbs instantly takes your water to the next
level. Making it at home couldn’t be easier, and you can customize it to your tastes. Keep a pitcher in your fridge or pour a big batch into portable water bottles so you can grab and go. Flavor combinations to try:
2. Place fresh cut flowers in an unexpected place. You might expect to see a vase of flowers in the center of the kitchen table, but it’s a pleasant surprise to find a bud vase on your nightstand. You don’t have to spend a lot on a big bouquet, either. Grab a simple bunch at the market and split it up. Scatter a few vases around the house; one for the powder room, one on your desk, and another in the foyer. This little dose of color and beauty can spark joy when you’re least expecting it
3. Sip out of a fancy glass. I once met a woman who drank water out of wine glasses. I thought it was so charming that she made even the simple act of staying hydrated a little more fun. Try pouring your orange juice into a stemmed glass and ditching your plastic cups for a while.
4. Indulge in dessert before your meal. Sometimes your sweet tooth just cannot wait. If you have a special dessert on hand, why not taste it before your main meal? It’s a fun way to treat yourself and you might get a little thrill out of breaking the rules! If you have some convenient Rabbit Creek Gourmet Mixes on hand, dessert is just a few moments away and will taste divine.
