Summer Self-Care Practices

Summer is here and we could not be more excited for extra daylight, relaxing, going on vacations, and living each day to the fullest. Summer is also a time to slow down, take time for yourself and refresh. We have put together a list of 5 ways to put yourself first this summer and beyond.

Stroll your local farmers market

Nothing says summertime like enjoying the outdoors while shopping locally grown produce to ignite your senses. Get up early, grab an iced coffee, and treat yourself to a bouquet of fresh flowers because you deserve it!

If you enjoy shopping local, Lifetherapy's bodycare and accessories are 100% made in Chicago! In the area? Join us at local markets this summer & fall.

Plan a staycation

You’d be surprised by what a change of scenery does for your mood. Explore your downtown area by staying at a swanky hotel for a couple nights or wind down and relax at nearby countryside B&B. 

Enjoy all the comforts of home with our Mini Collection Gift Set of 1 oz. travel sizes of both lotion & wash. Great way to choose your mood while you are away!

Do something you’ve never done before

Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but never have the time or have been scared to do? Get out of your comfort zone and try it! Take that dance class, learn Portuguese, try out for that part. Whatever it is now is the time. 

Afraid to try something new? Give our Play fragrance a try, with notes of jasmine is known to ignite passion and make you feel more confident. 

Spend time at the beach or lake

Being near water really does make us happier, feel calmer and more creative. In Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine, the water element is crucial to balancing the body and creating physical harmony.

Love the smell of being at the beach -suntan lotion, warm salty air? Try our Vacation fragrance with notes of warm sugar, sandalwood, white orchid and Polynesian coconut.

Take naps

Oh this is so good and a MUST for any season. A good 20 minute nap in the middle of the day is the perfect way to restore and refresh you mind, body and soul. 

Feel refreshed everyday with a dab of our Chill pulse point oil roll-on perfume. The scent of vanilla, calming rose, citrus and dry amber will have you feeling relaxed and ready to take on the day.
