8 RELAXATIOn TECHNIQUES

to help you UNWIND

With the busy lives we lead it’s no wonder we can sometimes find ourselves feeling stressed. This is why it’s essential to find a little ‘me time’ in daily life to keep ourselves feeling good.

Meet Vanda Serrador

“I recommend my clients to book out in their schedule at least one day a week to indulge in a little pampering. Pre-heat your bathroom as your body temperature tends to drop, light some candles, put on your favourite music and be prepared to relax your body and mind.”

Here are our top eight tips for feeling relaxed

TUNE OUT

Music has an amazing ability to transform your mood. Make a playlist of your favourite chilled out songs and press play every time the stress levels start to build.

BREATHE DEEPLY

Meditation is a wonderful way to clear your mind and create a sense of tranquility - and best of all you can do it almost anywhere! Find a quiet place, close your eyes and take deep breaths allowing your mind to go still.

TRY A MASSAGE

Over time stress builds in our body and can leave us feeling run down. A massage can help elevate this feeling of tension and promote an overall sense of wellbeing. You can recreate this spa experience at home for yourself by massaging Spa of the World™ Thai Makrut Lime Toning Body Oil all over your body, focusing on the arms, abdomen, hips and thighs. This Oil is infused with makrut lime, praised for its uplifting scent by Thai women. Don’t be surprised if you see smoother, firmer-looking skin following the massage.

GET ACTIVE

Exercise releases endorphins that make you feel great. Find a regular time each week and a physical activity that you enjoy, such as running or yoga, for a healthy body and mind. 

GO OUTSIDE

Whether it’s by the seaside or in the woods, a brisk walk in the great outdoors provides an instant mood boost. So put your walking shoes on and head out for some fresh air and natural relaxation.

EAT WELL

While not a quick fix, a healthy diet filled with fresh fruit and plenty of vegetables will help you feel at your best when you’re rushing around.

SLEEP ON IT

Late nights and early starts can make you feel exhausted and stressed. An early night or even a quick nap can help you feel refreshed and revitalised. Try applying a few drops of Spa of the World™ French Lavender Massage Oil to your pulse points to help create a relaxing mood.

PURSUE A PASSION

Doing something you love is an instant way to feel happier. Put aside a little bit of time a week to paint, dance or do whatever makes you feel good.

LasTLY, TAKE A BATH...

There’s nothing quite like a bath to help you unwind. Light a few candles and put on some calming music to create a soothing spa experience in your very own home. Begin by applying the Spa of the World ™ Brazilian Cupuaçu Exfoliating Scrub-in-Oil onto wet skin in circular motions. Then pour five scoops of the Spa of the World ™ Egyptian Milk & Honey Bath under running water, and relax.
