5 Ways to Pamper Away Your Wedding Planning Stress
There is no secret that planning an event as large and as important as a wedding can be extremely stressful. For some, the solution is simply to hire a wedding planner. However, if you have decided to tackle this process head-on, and on your own, then you may find that there are moments when you really need to destress.
Fortunately, there are several ways that you can pamper yourself, while simultaneously cutting down on the stress you are feeling as a result of the wedding planning.
Add Some Color and Scent to Your Bedroom If you want to feel relaxed, be sure that you have a sanctuary where you can go to escape the stresses of life. Take some time out to make your bedroom into that calm space. Add sprigs of lavender in various spaces around the room. The scent is known to naturally reduce stress.
Get a Pedicure Not only will manicures and pedicures make you feel better about yourself, the time spent being pampered can allow your mind and body to relax. So, turn off your phone, sit back, and enjoy the sensation.
Take a Bath You don’t have to spend any money to get a big dose of stress relief. Just take out a few moments to soak in a warm bath. Add lavender to your bath because, as mentioned above, it does provide natural calming.
Make Time for Tea and Cookies Invite a friend or family member to meet up with you. Don’t use this time to discuss the wedding. Instead, take time to enjoyed some tea and cookies. The British have the right idea with this tradition. Not only does tea time allow for a relaxing few moments, but there are certain types of tea – especially chamomile – that are natural, mild, tranquilizers. The tea hour can provide a double dose of stress release.
Schedule a Massage Easing muscle strain can really make you feel better, more relaxed, and more energetic. In many cases, the masseuse will use specific essential oils known to provide a natural calm.
