    Run yourself a hot bath. Check the temperature to make sure that it isn't too hot. Add some rose or lavender oil to the bath to soothe your mind and relax. You could also use some lavender scented bubble bath. Dim the lights in your bathroom so it's darker or just go by candlelight.

    Put on some relaxing music. Stores sell spa music, or you could buy some relaxing music off of iTunes or simply go on YouTube. Play the relaxing music before you get in the tub. Then, get in the bath and forget all your worries. Focus on your breathing; it will help you relax and feel calmer. Close your eyes if you want, but be careful not to fall asleep, as it could be dangerous.

    Get out when you're ready. When you are feeling fully relaxed and clean, get out of the bath and dry yourself with a big, soft, fluffy towel.

    Freshen your mouth. Brush, floss, and use mouthwash. Then take sugar and add water until it makes a paste, and rub it over your lips in little circles to exfoliate them. Apply chapstick.

    Make yourself a nice hot drink. Try some hot chocolate, herbal tea, or even your favourite coffee. Put it in a nice mug and drink it either on the couch or in your bed. If you're hungry, make some nice healthy snacks like fruit, veggies, crackers with cheese, or some yogurt. Or treat yourself with an ice-cream sundae.

    Relax. While you're drinking your drink, watch some TV, a film, or listen to some relaxing music in your bed. You could also read a book if you'd prefer. A good thing is to watch a movie; the best ones for right now are chick flicks, romantic comedies, or just comedies. One my favorite movies is About a Boy and it's perfect for this occasion. Don't watch horrors, dramas, mysteries, or thrillers, as these aren't relaxing.

    If you do not want to watch TV, just sit out in your back yard or by a window, and enjoy the fresh air or view while you drink your favorite hot drink. when you are done with your drink, close your eyes and take a deep breath, before you go in to clean up your dishes.

    Wind things down. When the film/music/TV show has finished, turn off the TV/stereo. Get ready for bed. Brush your teeth, hair, etc. While you're doing this, think happy thoughts and relax yourself.
