Sometimes the ever quickening pace of daily life can leave us feeling drained and depleted.
How we wish we could just take some time out to soothe our overwhelmed senses, and relax our heated minds.

True well-being seems to elude most of us in the hectic pace of life. I know…I’ve been there.

You are in the right place. Below are just a few extremely simple things you can do to reset yourself right now...try them!
The Simplest Self-Soothing tips ever (that you can do most anywhere, any time):
- Slow it down. Whatever you are doing, just slow down to a nearly resting pace. This action begins to take you out of fight or flight.
- Take several deep, long, slow breaths--inhaling and exhaling as many times as you can. Alternate inhaling and exhaling through your nose (like in yoga) and also inhaling and exhaling through your mouth (like in weight lifting). This action sends oxygen to your brain and helps relax you immediately.
- Stretch it out. Do some light stretches of your arms and legs, especially if you sit for long periods of time. This action helps circulation and reduces the stress hormone cortisol.
- Walk it out. Take a brief walk, even if it's only for five minutes. Try to go outside if you can. This action also reduces cortisol and has also been known to increase overall sense of happiness and well-being.
- Soak it out. Take a long, hot bath with one cup of epsom salts, a half cup of baking soda, and a few drops of essential oil, like lavender.
And while doing any of these...
- Get some Soothin' Infusion Organic Herbal Iced Tea. Enjoy and brew often a soothing elixir that has been alchemically crafted with herbs designed to soothe you on a deep level.
Sip with Love. Brew hot or cold. Sip slow. Share with Friends. Keep it Simple.
