A calming tea. Tea can benefit your health in many ways, so try a soothing one! Chamomile is a relaxing tea and won’t spike your energy with caffeine. Try out other teas that are made for relaxation. Find one that suits you and enjoy it!

A stress ball. A stress ball can be a great way to take you out of stress-mode and into the present moment. Try out this DIY stress ball project from WikiHow to make your own.

A moment of meditation. Meditation is a great way to let go of stress and worries. Spend a few minutes breathing and noticing your thoughts but choosing to keep your attention on your breath. Use Headspace if you’ve never practiced meditation before.

A hot bath. A bath can relax your body, therefore giving you a chance to let go and relax your mind as well. Use some bath salts or a bath bomb for an extra relaxing and luxurious experience.

A face mask or body scrub. Face masks are a great way to give your skin the care it needs while relaxing in the process! Try this Cocoa Dream Hydration Mask for a refreshing mask. Homemade body scrubs and lotions can also be so great for your skin. Try this Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub for a good body scrub and this Lavender-Chamomile Lotion Recipe for a good body lotion that will prepare you well for a good night’s sleep.
