Trying to destress in your apartment right now, when being stuck in your apartment is the reason for said stress, probably seems like an impossible ask right now. I get it. I’m right there with you.
Literally bathe in tea – green tea has tons of antioxidants you can soak up and herbal tea has anti-inflammatory properties that’ll be sensationally soothing.
Make a DIY bubble bath for times when you want a bunch of bubbles but don’t want all your expensive shampoo literally going down the drain.
Fill your bathroom with plants! Seriously, just go grab the plants around your place and put them in the bathroom for a bit.
Find a candle that calms you and *only* use it when you’re having a bath. It’ll act like your own personal Pavlov’s dog experiment (where, yes, you are the dog) by reminding your body it’s time to relax every time you light it.
Use white vinegar to wash your towels and keep them extra fluffy! Your bathing experience should soften your rough edges from beginning to end!
Make a spill-free spot for your booze! Elevating a drink on a small caddy or using a suction cup system is so much better than putting a drink on your bathroom floor (where you’re likely to get human soup drippings in it every time you reach down to pick it up).
Add a face mask to your bathtime routine to give your entire body a spa-like experience.
Turn off the lights!
And turn *on* some soothing sounds.
Use sugar cube soaps to exfoliate your skin – this may be the step you’ve been skipping that’s always been the itch you can’t scratch during a bath!
Find an assortment of interesting bath bombs so every time you get in the bath you can have a slightly different experience – breaking up the monotony that is life right now.
And finally, finish off with a nice bathrobe so you can feel comfy and cozy before throwing on all your post-bath lotions and potions.
Now it’s time to start swimmin’!
