Quinceaneras are a once-in-a-lifetime event which is why they can become stressful very quickly.
From deciding what style of dress you want to who your damas and chambelanes will be and between a DJ or Banda! But what if I told you there are ways to help you reduce that stress and all it takes is self-pampering.
Pampering yourself is known to trigger the relaxation response in your body which provides positive effects especially improved concentration and mood. The following are three great ways to unwind before your Quinceanera as well as help you in the long run.
1.) 30 Min Low Impact Workout
Working out will help you alleviate stress by releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. Don’t sweat it. I know the last thing on your mind is working out during such busy days, but this is low impact so you can simply choose to go for a walk or light jog around the neighborhood. Also, check out Fitness Blender on youtube. They have a range of workouts and they get your blood flowing.
2.) Take a Long, Warm Bubble Bath
A warm bubble bath is the ultimate way of pampering yourself. It’s so relaxing that it helps calm the nervous system by reducing levels of stress and anxiety in the body.
Don’t stop here, let’s take it to another level of relaxation and add a bath bomb or two, pair it with the perfect face mask and light some candles. This is blissful! The bath bombs help rejuvenate your body while the natural essential oils help calm your mind, below are some of my favorites.
3.) Put On Some Relaxing Music
There is no better way to create a peaceful ambiance in your home for your self-pampering day than by putting on some soothing music. The calming sounds will help quiet your mind while relaxing your muscles. Take a break from your everyday playlist and listen to these Spotify.
Life’s too short to not pamper yourself. After all, you work hard, so why not celebrate all the accomplishments and treat yourself. Especially when planning a quinceanera because everything is go-go-go it becomes difficult to remember that it is necessary to slow down and take a breather.
