Q&A: Real Relaxation with Tess Masters
A: I have a Sunlighten infrared sauna and Iove hopping in it to decompress. I then have a massage (or some other kind of body work). Then, I'll soak in a bath with mineral salts and essential oils, and then I love to cuddle up in my fluffy bed and watch a movie or read a book.
A: Some essentials oils or divine bubble bath for some good soaking time, and a great playlist of your favorite music.
A: Your computer. I'd like to not bring my phone either! I can't totally relax if I'm still "plugged in" and can access the hundreds of emails coming in.
A: A secluded beach where I can hear the sound of the waves and not much else. It's so soothing. I dream of going to the Maldives.
A: Eating good food and enjoying it is essential to a joyful and relaxing life. Our emotions are all held in our gut, so we want to be nourishing our bodies with healthy foods that nourish us, keep our brains clear (and not foggy), open up our chakras, aid digestion and energize us. Food is one of the great pleasures of life. So, I'm all about celebrating meal-time and really relishing in the experience. So many of my fondest memories of relaxing vacations are a special meal I had at a restaurant with loved ones.
A: I just love the Green Mojito smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app and book. It sips like a fancy cocktail without the hangover. It makes me feel like I'm on vacation in a tropical paradise. This blend is great for immunity, detox, weight loss and inflammation.
A: A relaxation tip that every one should know? A secret to relaxation? Lavender Oil. Rub a couple of drops of the essential oil into the souls of your feet right before going to bed. I do it every night for a wonderful restful sleep.
