everyone needs a time out now and then.
I find that even though I spend a lot of time alone, I still need to place myself in some quiet isolation and just think things through. I used to “lock” myself in the bedroom as the kids were collapsing on the other side of the door for
of alone time.
it would work wonders. I’d emerge from that room (slightly) refreshed, and with a tad bit more energy to face the rest of the day.
now I take to the bath tub.
it’s a great place to unwind, calm the mind, and can also be very therapeutic.
having fibromyalgia, and chronic pain in my joints caused from the damage of hemochromatosis, sometimes the tub is the only place that gives me relief.
another benefit is that it fits right in the budget, and by simply changing up what oils I add to the water, I can adjust to my needs.
sore muscles are sore.
the beauty of the ‘at home spa therapy’ is it is so cheap.
and I love cheap.
here’s the breakdown:
.5 ounces of 365 Brand Fragrance Free Shower Gel = .09
10 drops doTerra AromaTouch Essential Oil (.10/drop) = $1.00
1/4cup Epsom Salts = .50
total cost: $1.59
not too bad for a relaxing, therapeutic, calming meditation session right there in your own bathroom.
I highly recommend this as a daily time-out.
