Linda’s Homemade Spa Day


Linda is single, 38 and works as a 7th grade English teacher in Seattle. Her job is excruciatingly stressful between trying to entice 7th graders into wanting to learn the material she is teaching and meeting the ever growing stack of reports imposed by the school.

To cope with the stress and constant clamor and clatter in her workday, Linda decided to create a homemade spa day designed around her needs. She told me it was the best decision she ever made.

Saturday is catch-up day for grading papers and cleaning the apartment after which she has an evening out with friends. On Sunday, Linda usually has dinner with her mother and dad. She picked Sunday at 7:00 P.M. as her homemade spa day. She figured this would be the perfect way to prepare for the week ahead.

In preparation, Linda makes sure she has the following items and her favorite products on hand:

First, Linda prepared for her homemade spa day experience. (That morning she picked up her apartment so it was tidy and uncluttered.)


Linda’s homemade spa day experience:

Linda blows out the tea candles and snuggles into bed. She has set the timer on the radio to play soft music for 45 minutes which is about 40 minutes longer than it takes her to fall asleep. She is now completely relaxed, refreshed and ready for Monday.

Linda’s choice in products may not be yours and that’s fine. If you check out the resources you are sure to find the combinations of oils, candles, facial, and bath products that are perfect for your own homemade spa day.

You may also want to add features to your spa day that Linda chose to eliminate such as a pedicure and or a manicure. You may also want to begin your day completely different than Linda such as having it in the morning. You might begin with a light breakfast followed by exercise and meditation and then proceed with your spa treatment.

Whatever you decide you should make the experience rejuvenating in mind, body, and spirit. Each of us is different in what accomplishes this, but with a little experimentation, you can find what suits you best.
