The credit crunch has affected us all and the stresses and strains from the current economic situation and the resultant state of your purse strings are probably starting to take their toll. Eventually everyone needs to take some much needed time out. A well timed treat or a place where you can truly relax and get away from it all will keep you going, but ironically the occasions when we need to take care of ourselves the most are often the moments when we have the least time and energy to do so!
A hard day’s work combined with juggling family, friends and the housework is enough for anyone to deal with and it’s a wonder any of us ever have any spare time at all! A trip to a spa would be an amazing treat but in reality most of us barely can afford either the time or the cost to go on a proper spa break once a year, let alone once a month! It is far better for you to relax little and often, so why not convert your bathroom into your own at home spa. A pair of luxurious bath shower curtains, a few sumptuous bath towels, a vase of gorgeous flowers and some scented candles could transform your bathroom into the sanctuary that you need.
Treats and pampering needn’t cost the earth and just like you don’t need to fork out on a weekend away at a top health spa, you also don’t need to spend lots of money redesigning your bathroom into full scale luxury. We’ve all watched the home improvement programs and sometimes all it takes to transform your living space is a few well placed premium ornaments and accessories. Whether this is a gorgeous pair of new bathroom shower curtains or a big fluffy bath mat.
Once your new bath shower curtains and other accessories are in place all you need to do is turn on some soothing music, light a few scented candles and pour a few relaxing drops of a soothing aromatherapy oil like lavender or marjoram into your bath. Sink in, relax and you will be half way there already. For a truly luxurious experience see if you can ask a loved one to bring you in a glass of wine whilst you read your book in the bath
