PIPM: Pretty in Pink Megan: Creating Calm

Creating Calm

This weekend I majorly tried to up my zen game with regards to creating a calm home environment.  With trouble sleeping lately and being stressed out, I decided to change some things around the house.  

1. Marpac Dohm Sound Machine- I've always used a humidifier for white noise, but the one I had was starting to sound more like a space ship taking off rather than creating peaceful noise.  I had always heard that these were the best, so I just went out and bought one and I'm now obsessed.  It creates the softest but yet potent white noise sound and has two speeds.  Also, it's so small it fits nicely on your nightstand without taking up too much space.  

2. Heated Mattress Pad- this was a random buy but was so so so worth it.  I was contemplating a heated blanket, but opted for the mattress pad instead.  

3. DoTerra Essential Oils- I am now obsessed with these and actually sell them if you're interested in any.  I have always loved oils and used to buy tons from Aveda, but recently discovered DoTerra through a friend.  I use them every night in the bath along with epsom salts and I will also diffuse them in the house or apply topically.  My favorites are Balance, On Guard, Deep Blue, and Lavender. 

4. Aromatherapy Diffuser-  I got this one at Vitamin Shoppe randomly while I wait for a nicer one that will actually provide a mist, but this one does the trick for diffusing for a room in the house.  

5. Epsom Salt Baths- this is the cheapest way to unwind after a long day.  I use 2 cups of epsom salts and then throw in a few drops of my favorite oils.  Epsom salts are known for relieving muscle aches and melting stress away.  

So besides the occasional Xanax, these are easy ways to create calm that have helped! What do you all do to create calm?
