Hey, if Frankie says it, it must be true. We all know those days we need to come down off of. Maybe we have a day we’ll need getting through. Even yet, maybe you just can’t get something off your mind.
Here’s a few simple ways to relax by adjusting routines that already exist.
1. Take a shower by candlelight. For me, Tuesdays are shower days. Sue me, I’m a writer. So when the weekly event rolls around, I get very naked and light a candle…and against better judgement, in that order. But light just one candle. I do. Your eyes will adjust and will encourage slow and controlled movements. You’ll enjoy the length of time each action takes. Your sense of touch, smell, and sight will be heightened just a bit. Play some ambient music from your phone to a $10 portable speaker. I’ve been hooked on Lowercase Noises lately for my candlelit showers. Pretty much it’s the s**t for taking a calming shower. Even if my shower is going to be a quick one, I light a candle and jump in.
