Let’s be honest: if we could go to a spa every day, after a long day of work or responsibilities, we would jump on that opportunity, no questions asked. When life gets hectic, it’s hard to schedule a spa day for yourself, not to mention the cost. If there is anything that isolation and the global pandemic has taught us all, it is that sometimes, you have to get creative. Here is a quick guide on how to make your at-home spa day feel like the real thing!
Step 1: The Outfit
First of all, if you want to feel like you’re in a spa, you have to look the part. Get yourself a comfortable robe and some fuzzy slippers, so you feel like you’re at the Four Seasons.

Step 2: The Atmosphere
The next step to making your home feel like a spa is to make it smell like a spa. Place candles around the bathroom, or whatever area of your home you have designated ‘The Spa.’ Turn on a diffuser and fill it with your favorite calming scents. If you’re really feeling yourself, you can even light incense to clear out any bad energy.

No phones, no television. Spa time is me time: you need to be distraction-free so you can focus on getting in touch with your body and your emotions.
