In a hurricane , tropical storm or just life now… we NEED comforting.
Here are some of my personal tips to help!
❤️ Take a warm comforting bath before the storm or you lose electricity. Or if the storm passes you or just any day chill out in a bath 🛀 even if you are a shower person. IT will make you feel better!
I like to use Epsom salt and a few dashes of essential oil. Rose, lavender or lemon. I like to add shower gel to the tub for bubbles.
(Not crafters oil fragrance) The real thing!
❤️ This is NOT the time to go on a diet! Eat and drink things that comfort you. Bake some cookies from scratch. Make a pot of cozy hot chocolate or Chai tea.
❤️ Try taking a nap or at least try and get a good nights sleep. It really helps with stress! It also is so good for your health!
❤️ Or give each other a massage. The scalp, shoulders, hands or feet. Even the family can get in on the fun.
Practice a bit of meditation. Or start yoga. I have not been doing it for many years but I have added it to my life. It makes such a big difference.
❤️ Meditation 🧘♀️ calms the mind. If you don’t what to do. Just be still and quiet. Surround yourself with a salt lamp or a faux candle. Illuminate your space.
❤️ I’m not a doctor but my massage therapist and doctors over the years suggested I take one magnesium supplement at night. They say it relaxes the body and acts like a muscle relaxant. I practice that and it is quite effective. Sweet Dreams!
❤️ Spray your sheets or towels with lavender oil or peppermint oil. One calms and the peppermint lifts spirits.
❤️ Still feeling stress ? Chew gum or enjoy a hard candy. I love a candy brand called Jolly Ranchers!
❤️ Keep hydrated! Drinking Water 💦 is your body’s best friend. But a little Prosecco helps too. Or whatever floats your boat!
If you have a tip that you’d like to share with me. I’d love to hear from you.
I hope a few of these tips help and comfort you! Hurricane if not. We ALL need to take comfort.
