These Bath-Time Self-Care Ideas Will Keep the Sunday Scaries Away


Even when you’re living your best life, the Sunday Scaries can unexpectedly sneak up on you. Suddenly meetings, projects, deadlines, and your workload overtake your brain, and you find yourself unable to enjoy the remaining hours of the weekend. So how do you get your Sunday Funday back? The best way to beat the Sunday Scaries is with self-care. Read on to learn more about self-care and how to fight the Sunday Scaries with our favorite bath-time self-care rituals.


What is Self-Care?

Self-care is the practice of actively protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, particularly during periods of stress. Practicing self-care simply means engaging in healthy activities you enjoy and calm you down when you anticipate or notice stress. If you’re prone to the Sunday Scaries and want to make your next Sunday a self-care day, keep your calendar free and leisurely incorporate self-care activities into your day. Activities can range from meditation, to exercise, to treating yourself to something you enjoy, to saying no to plans, to making the time to practice good hygiene, and prioritizing your skincare routine. One of our favorite ways to practice self-care is to take a relaxing self-care bath. It allows you to unwind and disconnect from anxious thoughts.


How to Create the Perfect Self-Care Bath

The Sunday Scaries don’t have a chance against this relaxing self-care bath!


  1. Ambiance

Create a calm, serene environment. It’s easy to turn your bathroom into a Zen oasis with a few easy tricks. First, clean and organize your counters — clutter adds to anxiety. Then light a candle or two to set the mood and put on soothing music.


  1. Elevate Your Bath Water

Adding products to your bath water take tub-time from ordinary to luxurious! Throw in a bath bomb or add essential oils to the water to reap the benefits of aromatherapy. Make sure to add a scent like lavender or eucalyptus that promotes relaxation. For the utmost tranquility, pour two cups of Epsom salts to running water when you’re preparing your bath. A 20-minute soak with the salts will detoxify your body and calm your mind.


  1. Include a Tasty Treat

A little indulgence can go a long way to ease the anxiety. Allowing ourselves to have, and more importantly to enjoy something for no other reason than pleasure can relax our nerves. So go ahead and make sure that glass of wine or a few pieces of chocolate are within reach before you hop in your bath.


  1. Skincare = Self-Care

A self-care bath is a perfect place for you to catch up your skincare routine — especially those extra treatments that give you radiant skin, but you skipped during the week because you were short on time. Skincare is an essential part of selfcare because the routine is relaxing, but also boosts confidence.


Face masks are easy to integrate into self-care bath. Just put one on and relax for 15-30 minutes. These Cryocool face masks will nourish your skin and give it a boost of radiance. If you prefer to target specific areas of your face, your lips will look and feel luscious after the Skin Camp Rosy Hydra-Gel Lip Mask and these Youth Haus 24k Eye Patches will leave your undereye area looking like a million bucks. The wireless Wrinklit Heart LED Mask maximizes bath-time self-care skincare with LED light therapy that combats a variety of skincare concerns. And lastly, you can’t go wrong with a facial massage or contouring whilst you soak. The Skin Gym Jade Workout Set has you covered with a facial roller and gua sha for a soothing activity that will give you peace of mind and visible results.


  1. End on a Cozy Note

Just because the tub is drained doesn’t mean your self-care bath is over. After your soak grab your fluffiest, coziest robe and slippers to stay comfy and keep your mellow vibe through Monday.


This self-care bath is so good, you’ll be saying goodbye to the Sunday Scaries and hello to self-care Sunday for good. Here’s to getting the last day of your weekend back!
