Okay, I know it’s kind of hard not to watch the news.  Even if you don’t watch it, it flashes across your phone, you hear people talking, the world just seems to be spinning out of control. And if you live in any form of a city the traffic, the lines, the chaos, no wonder everyone is going home, locking the door and binging Netflix.

Yes – everyone is stressed out, you are not alone.

I can’t promise you anything is going to settle down soon, but there are a few things you can do for some quiet me time that will help calm you down and allow you to achieve some balance.

This Kusmi Detox Tea is my salvation. I have a cup first thing every day when I get home. It comes loose too, but I am yet to master the fine art of making tea with leaves. Or I’m just lazy.  Who cares?  One sip and I feel like all the debris from the day  is evaporating from my body.

Thank’s to Headspace I can finally mediate. I have tried everything, I am still not perfect, but I have come closer with this app than anything else. And the English guy who leads you is so nice, no judgment when you miss six days in a row.

Take it all of. Come home, take off those work clothes, workout clothes, running around clothes whatever you are wearing and put on something comfy.  Silky P’J’s are a luxury but they do hug and caress you into a state of relaxation.


I don’t know what it is about sheet masks that put me to sleep but they do and 5Yina is a great one. “Inspired by the wisdom of Chinese Medicine and created with modern alchemy, this mask delivers a spa quality facial. ” True!

Candles are always a great gift. This one you can light while you are meditating.

Dim the lights and light a candle. This one by Parachute is relaxing in every way, from it’s subtle  Jasmine, patchouli,  saffron mixed with ebony wood and lily of the valley scent to its minimalist white holder. It whispers relax.

Climb in bed. Yes, sometimes you just have to climb in bed and totally recharge.  My new favorite sheets are made by Parachute. The softest cotton, chemical free and every time you buy a set they donate a malaria net to someone in need. Win. Win.
