Everyone experiences little blips when life gets out of control crazy. For me that time usually comes when my son is in the midst of basketball season and he practices for hours every night and has several games per week. It just ended for this year, but I can attest to the need for a little TLC when everything around you is so crazy. Feeling the same? Try one of these simple things to help you get back a sense of control and feel like things have slowed down just a bit. You’ll be so glad you did.
1. Take a Hot Bath
Even if it’s a short one, soaking in warm water is a really powerful way to relax and unwind. Experts suggest filling the tub with water that is as hot as you can stand and then soaking for at least 20 minutes. The heat soothes tense muscles and lets you focus on yourself. Just don’t do the hot water too often or you’ll wind up with dry, itchy skin.
