Unwinding at home after a stressful work day can help you wake up happier, and making your house into a space that helps you unwind is crucial. If you’ve just moved, take the opportunity to transform your new bathroom into an especially peaceful space. And even if you’ve lived in your house for years, follow this simple advice from a member of the Thrive Global community to turn your bathroom into an at-home spa.

“I treat my entire home like my sanctuary. I believe that if your space is a mess, it reflects your thoughts being a mess. With that in mind, I keep my home tidy and fill it only with the things I love — including many candles and pictures of fun memories with friends and family. I prioritize my sleeping habits, so I invested in high-quality bedding. When I’m well-rested, I function better in all aspects of my life. I also turned my bathroom into an at-home spa experience, hanging fresh eucalyptus on the showerhead to bring out the scent with the hot water and steam. This is great for clearing your head and respiratory system. I also have a plethora of bath oils, ranging from lavender oil for relaxation, to peppermint oil for energy. I retreat to my homemade spa frequently to indulge in some much-needed self-care.”

—Heather Reinhardt, author, speaker and yogi, Los Angeles, CA
