I’m a mom and that basically explains why I can be stressed from time to time. There’s nothing I want more than to be able to step into my own oasis whenever I want. Do you know how important relaxing is to your body? I know those days that I’ve taken the time to relax are the times I’m the best mom to my kids. I’ve learned how to be the best “me” because I took the time to relax.

Here are some of my favorite ways to relax.


When I get a chance, I love taking the time to do Yoga. It’s a great way to just escape reality and focus on “me.” Plus it’s an excellent way to get my body into shape without feeling as though I’m falling apart.


If you know me well, you know that I enjoy meditation and spending time just relaxing and thinking. I try to meditate a few minutes a day just so I can collect my thoughts and get everything put back together mentally.

Shower Aromatherapy

Since I’ve come into contact with a product called ESSIO I can finally take a deep breath whenever I want and relax. I’ve tried various soaps and diffusers that smelled great but didn’t allow my body to relax fully.  ESSIO makes me feel just as relaxed as yoga or meditation does!


ESSIO is the world’s first aromatherapy diffuser that transforms the everyday shower into a moment of luxury. ESSIO works by diffusing 100% organic essential oils into the shower stream, soothing, healing and rejuvenating the mind and body. With 6 unique scents ranging from a eucalyptus-infused Breathe blend to a lavender-based Night blend, ESSIO brings the spa home to you at a fraction of the cost.

Why it’s great:

  • Easy to install: works with virtually any shower, no tools required
  • Simple to use: pods snap easily into place to create instant aroma and can be turned on and off at any time
  • Sustainable: made with 100% recyclable material and FSC-certified packaging
  • Affordable: the starter kit, just $44.99, is affordably priced and the perfect gift
  • Organic: uses 100% USDA-certified organic essential oils; no synthetics or artificial fragrances period


There you have it, my favorite ways to relax. I’d love to hear your most enjoyable ways of escaping and enjoying life a little more.
