Rest and relaxation are just around the corner when you have these nifty gadgets right at home.
#1 – A bathtub pillow
Dreaming of a relaxing soak in the tub but dreading the cold, hard porcelain on your back?
The first self-care gadget you can’t live without is a bathtub pillow. Averaging around $30 on Amazon, bathtub pillows give you a soft, supportive neck and back rest in the bath tub. Now you can light a few candles, lean back, and relax in complete comfort.
Most tub pillows include a hanger so you can hang it over the tub to dry when you’re done.
#2 – An acupressure mat
The second self-care gadget you needed yesterday is an acupuncture mat.
Simply unroll your mat and lie on it for improved circulation, rejuvenation of your skin, and relieve stress and tension. Use your acupressure mat to fight headaches, migraines, back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and stress.
When you’re done, roll it back up and store in a drawer or closet. It’s that easy!
As an added bonus, most mats are under $100 and include a small acupressure pillow, too!
#3 – An aromatherapy diffuser
Most aromatherapy diffusers are under $50 and transform your home, bedroom, or bathroom into a resort-like oasis. Simply add water and a few drops of your favorite essential oil for focus, stress relief, stimulation, and health benefits. You can also use your diffuser to promote relaxation during a yoga session or sleep at the end of the day.
You can choose from a variety of colors, designs, and aesthetics. Find the diffuser that compliments your space and creates the ambience you’re looking for in your room.
#4 – A self-care planner
Using a self-care planner can help you give your wellness the same attention you give your bills and meetings. You can expect a great self-care planner to remind you to:
- hydrate your body by drinking enough water
- move your body throughout the day
- pay attention to how you feel, what caused it, and what helps
- be more mindful
- complete small tasks that improve your life, space, or wellness
- choose foods that nourish your body, and more.
#5 – A derma roller
Derma rollers include hundreds of microneedles that puncture the outermost layers of skin. These tiny, almost painless punctures have a dramatic effect behind the scenes. Your body goes into healing mode,increasing the production of collagen-rich tissue. This new tissue gives you brighter, healthier skin.
A derma roller is one way to get spa-level care right at home for less than $20. For catapulted results, add a well-reviewed serum to your derma rolling routine.
Alright, that’s it! These five affordable gadgets can give you a day at the spa without ever leaving your home, so you can tackle life rested and recharged.
