5. Pamper yourself with a spa day

Delight in a day of DIY spa treatments. Make a face mask, soak your feet, create a lip scrub, exfoliate with a body scrub. If you own one, give dry brushing a go.

6. Transform your shower into an oasis

Create a playlist of your favorite songs and listen in the shower. If you prefer to shake it up, unwind listening to tranquil music or nature sounds. A few options are thunder and lightening, rain, rain forest or ocean sounds.

9. Unplug for a bit

Your phone might feel like a third arm but occasionally unplugging can give you time to be in the moment. Set down the laptop, phone or tablet.

10. Stargaze with a cup of tea, cocoa or coffee

If you’re a night owl pull up a chair or swing on a clear night. Let your eyes take hold of the moon and stars above. If you’re lucky enough you might see fallen stars.
