The weather getting colder and the leaves changing makes Fall the perfect opportunity to bring positive changes into your life? Here in Canada, Thanksgiving is around the corner and kicks off the Season of Giving. And while it’s a season mostly about giving to others, it’s equally important to devote time towards yourself.
Living in this fast-paced society, we often forget to treat ourselves. With a multitude of obligations and expectations, being able to relax may seem like an unreachable goal. To incorporate relaxation into your daily life, you must make it a priority.
We have developed some simple tips towards setting some time for self-love over this Thanksgiving holiday…trust us, your body will be the one thanking you!
One of the best places to start is at the end of your day, just before bedtime. Before you get your Z’s, try three R’s: Restore, Reflect and Rest
Getting your mind into a relaxed state starts with a nice, warm bath. Restoration Salt Soak has powerful purifying aromatherapy benefits that will aid in an increase towards a deeper sense of spiritual connection. The magnesium flakes help to calm and sooth the mind while the Dead Sea Salt removes any negative toxins throughout the body. You will feel completely relaxed by the combination of Lavender, Bergamot, Frankincense and Myrrh essential oils. Use this bath time to enjoy a moment of stillness and to practice being present in the moment.
Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all the amazing aspects of our lives, by the experiences and people who have shaped us into who we are today. Take this time to reflect on gratitude through meditation and journaling practices.
Once you have soaked up all the wonderful benefits of a restorative bath, moisturize with our Zen-Z Body Butter. Lavender essential oil helps to calm the mind of any outside noise. Whipped into this highly moisturizing body butter, it provides a sense of comfort in addition to its soft and silky feel on the body through four carrier oils.
Write down at least five of the moments during the day that you are truly grateful for. Express your true emotions and feelings about these items. Feel the gratitude travel through your body!
We tend to overlook the power of sleep and how our body needs rest for us to be our best selves. A combination of Restoration Salt Soak and Zen-Z Body Butter, you will have the most relaxing sleep ever!
So, during this long weekend, slow down and treat your body. Take the extra few minutes to incorporate these easy tips into your nighttime routine.
Live this Season of Giving the right way and have a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday!
