Relaxing Autumn Evenings – in this post I’m going to explore some of the cosy, relaxing things you can do after a busy autumn day.
Have a hot bubble bath
This has to be number one! After a busy autumn day rushing around, that cold wind whistling past your ears, drying out your lips. There’s nothing more comforting than jumping into a hot bath, full of bubbles and a Lush bath bomb! Devine! You could also light some autumn/winter scented candles just to help your whole mind and body de-stress! Love a good scented candle!
Soft snuggly PJs
Obviously, once you’ve finished your bath, youre all relaxed and cosy. The next order of the day is PJs. I love fleece PJs or a nice matching shirt and pants PJ set. Not forgetting some slippers or slipper socks!
Hot chocolate & snacks
Depending what time of night it is, it’s nice to sit down with a hot chocolate (or wine depending on your day!) and some nibbles (don’t forget to drink some water after your bath as you’ll feel a little dehydrated!).
With hot chocolate (or wine) and nibbles in hand, you need to settle down in your favourite comfy place and pull on a blanket to get really settled and snuggly.
Then to round everything off perfectly pop on a movie or 2, or a box set.
Complete relaxation and de-stressing for an autumn night.
Now, I totally understand this “perfect night time relaxation routine” is not possible for everyone! This is my perfect night, however, I can’t remember the last time I did this because normally I have my bath and then fall into bed shattered!
Plus I can still remember what it was like when my son didn’t sleep through the night and would get up and down about 10 times. I didn’t want to waste valuable sleeping time by faffing about with candles and chilling in the bath. I wanted to quickly clean myself and get out and in bed before the bath had time to empty!
To be fair, I could do this now if I remembered, my lad is almost 8 so I’m lucky. I know, I’m very lucky! He goes up to bed without any bother and sleeps all the way through.
How about you, do you manage to have a little me time once in a while? Do you do something like this or are you into something else to help with de-stressing and relaxing in autumn? I’d really love to know!
PIN for later
