If your job is like the main course of your day, and the private time you share in the evening with friends and family is dessert, then consider that transition time between the two your mental palate cleanser.
Just ask Aveda Ambassador Vanessa Packer, who is the founder of modelFIT and a certified organic nutritionist, who says that having a winding down ritual after work “is essential for preserving the sanctity of my personal life.” It also enables her to be more present for her family.
Try Vanessa’s tips to decompress and start the evening off fresh:
1. Meditate: “Sitting quietly, clearing your mind, and reconnecting with your breathing is an effective way to center yourself after a busy day”, says Vanessa. It doesn’t have to be long, but it must be purposeful. Try enhancing your experience with a spray of an Aveda Chakra™ Balancing Body Mist.
