Only a few weeks until your big day? Now is the time to take a breather and forget about all that overwhelming wedding prep for a bit. This is the perfect moment to pamper yourself and show some love to the most important person in all of this - you! To make things easier for you, we've put together a list of awesome ways to treat yourself and de-stress before you walk down the aisle.
Join Aromatherapy Workshop
Picking up a new hobby or learning new skills can be an amazing stress reliever. Here's an idea - sign up for an aromatherapy workshop. During the workshop, you'll dive deep into the basics of the practice, find out more about essential oils and how to mix them. The coolest part? You'll get a chance to experiment with different scents and create your own unique blends based on your own needs. And, oh, don’t forget to take your DIY blends home, so you can make every day feel like a spa day.
Try Aerial Yoga
Take a yoga class but with a twist. Yes, we are talking about aerial yoga. This unique practice combines traditional yoga poses with elements of pilates, dance, and acrobatics, all while using an aerial hammock. So be ready to perform postures in the air! Aerial yoga can help you improve your balance, tone your muscles and increase your blood circulation. Plus, it's very therapeutic. Aerial yoga encourages staying in the moment, promotes deep breathing, and is a great mood booster. Exactly what you need during these hectic pre-wedding weeks!
Experience Sound Baths
Have you heard of sound baths? It’s a unique meditative experience where you are ‘bathed’ in sound waves. While guided meditation usually uses spoken words to guide a person into a meditative state, sound baths use music and instruments such as gongs and bowls. Sound bath sessions are perfect for easing stress, relieving pain, and getting in touch with your body and mind. You can either join a group session if you're comfortable sharing your experience with others or book a private one to make sure nothing and no one distracts you from the process.
Plan a Relaxing Countryside Escape
Plan a short peaceful escape to the countryside. Forget about the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy bonding with nature. No social media, no gadgets, and no stressful wedding talks - only you, the healing morning strolls, and the soothing sounds of birds’ signing. Take along a good book you've been planning to read for a long time, or simply bring your thoughts and a notebook to pour your feelings and emotions onto paper. This brief escape will recharge your batteries and offer you some precious 'me time' to mentally prepare for your big day.
Enjoy a Private Shopping Experience
Shopping is always a great idea! But how about taking the experience to the next level? Think about spoiling yourself with a day-long shopping spree guided by a professional stylist. They can show you around the most exclusive stores, help you find your personal style, and pick out the clothes that work for you. A stylist will not only upgrade your wardrobe but also give you valuable advice for your future shopping and fashion choices. And hey, if you're still on the hunt for the perfect honeymoon outfits, this could be your golden ticket!
Schedule a Photoshoot
Having a personal photoshoot with a professional photographer is yet another cool idea. This will help you let loose, soak up some good vibes, and, most importantly, shake off any camera shyness. Trust us, you'll need that skill on your wedding day because all eyes (and cameras!) will be on you. Your photoshoot could be just about anywhere - in the serenity of nature, inside a cool photo studio, or perhaps within the lavish rooms of a high-end hotel. It's totally up to you!
