Breathe in, breathe out. We could all use a little extra “me time” in our day-to-day lives. Why not start by implementing ways to make your home a more relaxing environment? In HSN’s Connected Life series (Wednesdays, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET.), host Brett Chukerman connects you with experts to discuss topics like sleep, relaxation, fitness and more to help you achieve your best, balanced life.
In this week’s episode it’s all about relaxation and utilizing techniques that will help reduce stress and create a state of calmness. Here are a few ways to help you relax a bit easier in your own home.
Sometimes the best way to enjoy a little R&R is to partake in some at-home pampering. Dim the lights, apply these eye gels from Patchology, draw yourself a hot bath and get ready to soak. Once the tub is filled, add some calming bath salts from AHAVA in lavender, eucalyptus or natural and let the aroma take you to your relaxation happy place. Eliminate any distractions by leaving all of your technology in another room and if you have children, ask your partner to help out while you take an hour to relax and recharge.
If you prefer showers to baths, then you’ll want to add this rainfall shower head from AromaCare to your bathroom. Make everyday showers feel like a spa day and rinse away your stress with scents of lavender and relaxing water pressure. Let the bliss continue when you dry off with plush towels and relax in your 100% Turkish cotton robe.
Sleep It Off
There’s nothing more relaxing than a good night’s sleep. Before you get ready for light’s out, enjoy a massage with this bed rest from Brookstone. Use this time to meditate and focus on your breathing for a relaxing night’s sleep. If you have trouble falling asleep, this iHome light show and sound machine creates a relaxing environment with smooth sounds and lights to help you fall asleep and stay asleep; and when you’re ready to wake up, the same lights and sounds create an energizing atmosphere to help you start your day. If you want to monitor your sleep activity, the Fitbit Charge 2 is a great tool to help you keep track of your sleep routine, leading to a more relaxed and recharged you.
