As the World Turns might have been a soap opera that your mother watched as she did the ironing and cleaned the home, but it’s also a phrase that makes you realize that today’s world is a busy one that keeps going on and on day after day. Whether or not your world revolves around your spouse and family or it revolves around your career, the truth of the matter is that it can be quite stressful living in today’s world of ever-changing electronics, constantly rising prices, the demands of work (in or out of the home), family obligations, and so much more. Where can you find relaxation that brings with it a large enough dose of luxury to rejuvenate your mood, mind, body, and soul?
Create a Mini Spa for Luxurious Comfort
Going back to thinking about your mother and how she chose to relax may bring up a faint memory of hearing the phrase “Calgon, take me away,” coming from the television as the picture of a bottle of bubble bath appeared on the screen. Hot bubble baths are well known for creating an opportunity to get away from it all and relax in a tub full of effervescent bubbles fragrant with some delicious scent. After all, once you are in the tub with the door locked, everyone in the home should know to leave you alone until you emerge.
Why not take that idea of luxurious comfort and expand it to include a full-fledge spa-like experience right in the sanctuary of your own home? Don’t worry about the expense! No matter what you spend on your start up items, you are going to spend less than you would to join and attend a spa each week.
Building Your Mini Spa Kit
Before you begin to write up a list of the items that you will need to build your mini spa kit, close your eyes and envision your bathroom. Now, think about what you would need to create the perfect sanctuary away from life’s daily struggles. Is there music in the background? Do you smell the fresh scent of lavender or perhaps it’s an invigorating fragrance of blended citrus notes? Do you need a whirlpool or will a plush bath pillow suffice? How about a foot bath with decadently luxurious foot soaking beads oozing with fragrant oils? What about facial masks and anti-aging beauty formulas? Don’t forget about a few new plush towels and face cloths to pamper you body after you step out of that relaxing bath or finish up a facial regimen.
If you want it, then you need it and you should have it. After all, indulging in luxurious comfort once or twice a week will rebalance your mental capabilities as well as your physical ones. You will be better equipped to deal with life’s hassles as well as its necessities. Take you mental image and put it to paper. Make a list of the most important, cannot-do-without items first. Next, add in the beauty formulas, accessories, and props that you need to finalize your mini spa. Do your shopping and enjoy your mini spa of luxurious comfort whenever you need a pick me up!
