Here's How to Replicate a Spa Day at Home
Our motto over here at Sweety High is and always be, "Treat yo' self."
If you're having a rough month, week or day, chances are you need to wind down a bit and treat your mind and body to a little rest and relaxation.
Because going to a spa can cost big bucks, we're here to break down how you can set up your own in-home spa day in just six easy steps.

1. Power Off
If you were to actually visit a spa, you know that rule number one would be absolutely no cell phones. If you're truly trying to relax, you must follow this rule—even if at home!
Power off your cellphone, your laptop, your tablet and whatever other hundreds of tech devices you might have, and truly focus on what you're trying to accomplish: relaxation.
2. Get Cozy
The number two rule of visiting any fancy spa is you must be cozy. Nothing screams cozy like a warm, fuzzy robe and slippers, amirite?
Head to Target or maybe even Forever 21 and treat yourself to something comfy. Your mind and body will thank you.
3. Set the Mood
Before you begin to pamper, get your bedroom and bathroom ready.
Set the mood by lighting your fave candle(s) and turning on calming music that will allow you to escape reality if even for a little bit.

4. Prep Some Food and Drinks
If you're really trying to pamper yourself at a spa's level, you must have fancy food and drinks to accompany your experience.
Try making some colorful and healthy detox water with fruit and some finger sandwiches to keep your tummy from rumbling while you relax to your fullest.
5. Set Up Beauty Stations
Now's the time to actually begin your pampering!
Set up stations throughout your room and bathroom that are focused on different parts of your body.
In your bathroom you could have a scrub station in your shower where you give your skin a fresh start, by your sink you could have a hair and face mask station and in your bedroom you can set up a pile of pillows and blankets where you can lounge, munch on some snacks and do your nails.
Moving from station to station will make you truly feel like you're at a luxury spa and not in the comfort of your own bedroom and bathroom. 😉
6. End With Rest
The final and key component to re-creating a spa day at home is leaving time and space for yourself to stop everything you're doing and just be.
Once your face and hair mask are on and your nails are drying, plop down in a mountain of pillows, crank that calming music up and zone out.
As mentioned before, a spa day is all about refreshing both your body and mind.
Meditate, take a nap or even read a book, just don't focus on anything pertaining to your real-life responsibilities. That's what a spa day is all about, after all. 🛀
