How to Slow Down with Rituals

I thought I would ask if you sometimes feel like things are moving too fast. But then I realized that we all live hectic lives. We all sometimes feel like things need to slow down. I’ve read a lot of tips on relaxation. Face masks and baths are pretty popular and although they are pretty relaxing they still involve effort. So from now on I decided to give myself time to do absolutely nothing. With a little bit of help.

First I close the blinds/lights and light up a candle. If you ask me the ambiance a candle creates is enough to totally change your mood. The Amber scented candle has an amazing deep flowery scent that is not overpowering. I like to take this time to reflect on all the good things I’ve been blessed with. I tend to take up much time dwelling on the bad stuff that I forget to acknowledge the good.

Another thing that I use when I feel overwhelmed is The ritual of Dao relaxing serum. I must admit I thought it wouldn’t do anything at first but it ended up being pretty helpful to my calmness. You just massage it in your temples, forehead and neck. Massaging these places in general can really relax you so this serum definitely gives you an incentive to do it more often. Also the Chinese peppermint and the Yi Yo ren it contains will have a cooling soothing effect that I really enjoy. (Plus thanks to its size you can throw it in your handbag and use it whenever you get feelings of anxiety.)

Last, I spray a little The ritual of Dao bed and body mist and go to sleep like a baby.

So what do you guys do when you want to relax? Let me know in the comments below.

    To relax I sometimes just sit with my eyes closed..not napping, just letting my mind go. I also love to relax with a good cup of coffee and my Bible in the morning..it gives me a peaceful, focused start to my day.
