4 Easy Ways to Add Relaxation To Your Routine
by Purple Carrot
Do you feel like you rush from one thing to the next, without any downtime? We get it; it’s easy to get into go-go-go mode. That’s why we want to encourage you to find moments—even brief ones—to stop for a second, take a breath, and just … chill.
Here are 4 ways to add relaxation to your routine.
1. Light a scented candle or take a whiff of essential oil (like lavender, grapefruit, or peppermint) for an instant mood-shifter.
2. Add dried eucalyptus to your shower. Just tie the bouquet so it hangs from your shower head, and hot steam + fragrant eucalyptus = a spa-like shower experience.
3. Sign up for an online meditation course, or try a meditation app.
4. And if you’re really into meditation, get a cushion to sit on! Meditation cushions are small pillows, often filled with buckwheat hulls, designed to help you sit more comfortably—and promote
optimal posture—during meditation.
