Set the Scene
These two hours are something small that I can do for my sanity. And honestly, some of my most successful creative thoughts have come to me during this me-time. I play music and I read a book. 95% of my week, the thought of dropping everything to read – something that doesn’t relate to any of my endeavors – is really low on my list. And by that I mean it doesn’t happen unless I happen to be confined to my bed and have already watched as much Netflix / Hulu / HBOgo as I can handle. These two hours lets me do that. It lets me escape the pressure of my job and extracurricular responsibilities. I leave my phone downstairs so I can’t be tempted, I put on a playlist, and I chill.
I am telling you, it’s glorious. It seems like a lot of time to give up, but it makes a huge difference. For me, I’m set up for a better week after Sunday and a better weekend after Friday. Start with 30 minutes if an hour sounds like too much commitment…ease into this puppy.
Put on a face mask, I like to use the mega greens galaxy pack mask from glossier to help reset my skin for the new week along with my attitude (use this link for 20% off).
Toss in some bath salts and turn the water on super hot so you can soak! I like to use my rose bath salt soak on friday because it helps bring me down at the end of the week, but on Sunday I pull out a kelp and sea salt soak to reinvigorate me. Added bonus: I put in epsom salts to get the water super salty and get out feeling like I’ve been swimming in the ocean, which is magical.
Below is the “I’m going to kick this week’s ass like a centered goddess of control and happiness” mix. Mhmm yup.
