Whether the reason is time, energy, or expense, a spa day just isn’t always practical. However, that doesn’t mean you have to skip the indulgence altogether. With the right atmosphere, you can create a spa-like environment just about anywhere, even in your bathroom.
With a couple of simple steps, you can transform your bathroom experience and trick yourself into believing you’ve stepped into your favorite spa.
Step 1: Prepare Your Space
So, we actually hate this step, too. But! It is so much easier to relax when our space is clean and tidy. Create an environment where you won’t be distracted by things you need to put away or a mess you need to clean.
Then, when it’s time to settle in, light a candle and soak. You can clear your mind, just like you cleared your countertops!
Step 2: Treat Your Senses
It’s incredible how the little things genuinely elevate an experience. When setting up your spa experience, think about all of your senses and how you can give them a treat. Give yourself a sensory checklist to ensure you feel great at your home spa. What sounds or music could your ears enjoy? Do your eyes prefer dim candlelight? Pick the perfect scent for your nose, and make sure you keep your muscles relaxed with a bath pillow.
Step 3: Add the Extra Touches
Maybe it’s as simple as adding some fruit to a glass of water, adding a tray to your tub, grabbing the book you’ve been dying to read, or even spending your “spa” time watching your favorite show while soaking (safely, of course!).
Find whatever your experience needs to make it perfect for you.
Step 4: Line up the Products
It’s finally time to enjoy all of the special items you get in your Bubbles and Books box! So grab the bath bombs, bubble bars, lotions, face masks, hair masks, and other special items that you can’t wait to enjoy. Make sure everything you could even consider wanting is within arm’s reach, so you don’t have to get out of the tub for anything.
Step 5: Do Not Disturb
If you’re anything like us, the real draw of the spa is the guarantee that you won’t be bothered by the demands of the outside world. Let everyone know you’ll be with them when you’re refreshed and revitalized.
It’s time to take care of yourself, and sometimes, that needs to be the priority.
