Instead of loading up on coffee when you are in a rush, take time to drink tea instead. Try a herbal tea or an infusion and experiment with different flavors to find the ones that revive you the most. Chamomile tea is a superb choice if you want to wind down at night and prepare for a relaxing sleep. Prepare a quiet space for yourself and your tea pot and take your time to savor each mouthful slowly, tasting the fullest of every drop.
Meditation is for everyone, and there are many different types you can engage in. You do not need to follow a specific religion or spiritual beliefs to benefit from this practice. You do not even need hours each day to feel the benefits it can offer you. Start with just a few minutes, by seating yourself in a quiet place. Try to clear your mind of rushing thoughts, but do not put too much pressure on yourself to do it perfectly at first. The more frequently you meditate the more comfortable and confident you will become at it. Some people like to focus on their own breathe or a positive thought to keep them focused. Try it!
Take a bath
Wash all of your problems away at the end of each day with a rejuvenating bath that will give you some well-earned ‘me time’. When you escape to the bathroom, place a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door and treat yourself to some peace amongst the bubbles and fresh aromas. Select natural bathroom products that support and do not irritate your skin, and your body will thank you for it. If you have the time, take a good book or some relaxing music in there, and enjoy the serenity that you have been missing.
