The Perfect Stress Free Night

With the stresses of everyday life, it can be challenging to find time to relax. With my schedule getting busier and it being finals week (ugh), I have been trying to focus on relaxing more and not being stressed out. Either on Friday nights or Sunday nights, I like to take some time to do things that I don't really get to do during the week. Here are some things I do.

Take a bath
Showers are so much quicker and more efficient, but I definitely think that baths are more relaxing. I like to light candles and place them around the edge of my tub. I pour shower gel into the tub (shower gel works as bubble bath) and unwind from the week.

Listen to calming music
Spotify is my favorite place to get music. When I want to relax, I always listen to the Afternoon Acoustic playlist, which has slower, calming songs. Take a listen!

Apply a face mask
Although this is not pictured, I love applying face masks! My favorite is this one from Lush. It's a nice way to rejuvenate your skin and prepare it for the week to come.

Read a book
Whether it be a novel you want to read or a coffee table book (I'm reading this), take some time to do some reading that's not assigned for school.

Drink lemon water
I love drinking cold water before bed, and it tastes even better with lemon! Lemon water has so many health benefits such as clearing skin and helping digestion. Plus, it helps if you drink it out of a cute tumbler!

Scroll on Pinterest (or Tumblr)
Pinterest is one of my favorite ways to gain inspiration, and I find it so relaxing to just scroll aimlessly. I love looking at fashion, food, and just pretty pictures! Be sure to follow me!

Flip through magazines
Sometimes I receive magazines in the mail, and forget to ever flip through them! They can be great tools for gaining tips, inspiration, or for developing girl crushes (Bella Thorne is literally perfect).

What do you like to do to relax?
