The holiday season, and particularly the weeks leading up to Christmas, can be full of to-do lists, stresses, disagreements (often petty), and a general feeling of hurriedness. Let’s calm it down.
Feeling a little hot around the collar? Got some aches and pains that won’t quit? Do you feel like the lady in the Calgon commercial?
Take a bubble bath.
Hit the showers! Or better yet, get thee to the tub. A hot bath or shower can help you clear your head, relax your body, and help you feel a little more human.
It doesn’t take long. An hour would be nice, but if you can’t swing that, grab 20 minutes. You’ll feel better. You’ll be refreshed. And you’ll be a kinder, happier mom.
Need more motivation?
- Mix up a batch of Lavender Milk Bath.
- Give yourself the full Spa Treatment.
- Stir up a homemade Facial Mask.
This post is part of FishMama’s campaign to Just Keep Calm. Every day during the weeks leading up to Christmas, I’ll post a different idea to help you keep calm, gain perspective, and not let the holidays (or any time of year) make you a crabby mom.
