You might be a mere month or so away from your wedding day, and you would love to be basking in these last few weeks of engaged bliss. Instead you’re feeling tired, stressed out and overwhelmed. Maybe you need to check in with guests who haven’t RSVP’d, get vendor contracts signed and figure out when to apply for your marriage license. Oh, and you’ve probably got a day job and a normal life that is on overdrive at the moment.
It’s time to take a moment – or two – to relax! Self-care is an important part of living a healthy, happy life. Here are a few simple ideas for quick and natural stress relief to help you feel happier and more peaceful while you plan your wedding day:
Mix Epsom Salts and baking soda in a bowl. Add oil and mix thoroughly. Add tea and zest (and essential oil, if you are using it). Mix everything together and add to a sealing container. This relaxing and rejuvenating scrub will last for a couple of months (if you don’t use it all quickly!).
Unsure where to start? For a self-care routine to be effective you need to be deliberate and mindful of the act, so no multi-tasking. Establish a morning ritual, as we previously wrote about, to support mindfulness and help bring focus to your day.
Still need a boost? One of my favorite rituals is my mid-morning tea—the simple act of gathering the leaves, taking in the aroma of the tea while practicing breath awareness followed by slowly sipping it from my favorite cup is a subtle reminder to slow down and enjoy the experience.
