The Best Ways to De-Stress at Home When Life is Too Much to Handle

Sometimes life gets the best of all of us. Between work, school, love lives, money and friends - sometimes you can reach a mental overload. That is okay! You can feel overloaded! In those moments, it's important to experience optimal relaxation, so I'm writing today about the best ways to de-stress at home... or at least my go-tos!

We all feel the pressure of everyday life. I feel grateful, but balancing all the things that make our lives unique can be very stressful. If you're familiar with my posts here on the blog, you know that I'm a HUGE fan of at-home DIYs and any way to save money! Why spend top dollar at a salon or spa when I can have some relaxation at home?

FACE MASKS

I love a good face mask! Whether it be an at-home DIY recipe or a sheet mask I find at the store! Take some time and pamper yourself, girl.

HIMALAYAN PINK SALT LAMP

I LOVE my pink salt lamp! Salt lamps have been shown to increase sleep and air quality. The gentle glow is really good for my mood and instantly relaxes me.

PAINT YOUR NAILS

Bring the nail salon home and paint them yourself! Pick your favorite color and feel good about your nails!

PUT ON SOME RELAXATION MUSIC

Find a good Spotify playlist or look up some music on YouTube! I love the "Coffeehouse" playlist on Spotify. Put yourself in a chill mood with some tunes!

FLUFFY PJS

Put on your favorite pair of relaxing pants and chill out! I love feeling cozy in my onesie!

SIP A GOOD TEA

Drink LOTS of water - the worst thing possible is to be dehydrated. But if you're looking for a little calm-down treat at the end of your day, I recommend the orange herbal teas from TAZO.

HAVE A HEALTHY SNACK

Carrots and hummus is my go-to. Dark chocolate is a great sweet treat and is shown to reduce your risk for heart disease. It is also a powerful source of antioxidants.

How do you unwind and de-stress at home?
