“Want to go to a yoga class?”
It’s a question I’m frequently asked by friends and work associates who consider the zen workout an ideal bonding – and fitness – experience. And yes, I live in Los Angeles where work-life balance rules and meditation is like a religion.
But tapping that calm mental space regularly should be a part of a healthy lifestyle no matter where you live (I’m looking at you NYC-residents!). According to the American Heart Association, taking a few minutes a day to mediate could lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, for example. Hopping in the tub for a chill sesh can also go a long way to lower stress levels, fight fatigue, and even minimize pain levels. But aside from the health benefits, a bath just feels pretty darn good. Amiright?
Start small by treating yourself to a suds for National Relaxation Day on August 15th, using Mayfair Soap Foundry’s luxe bath products. Their bath salts in sea lily jasmine dissolve to release soothing minerals into the bath, while the scent allows for some seriously floral R&R.
But using Mayfair Soap Foundry’s products won’t just help you feel better, the brand is also on a mission to share respite and relaxation with those in need. For each product purchased, a donation of $0.10 is made to help Starlight Children’s Foundation improve the quality of life for kids and families experiencing difficult health challenges. The funds are used in hospitals, speciality clinics and camps, and respite houses and hospice in the United States and Puerto Rico that collectively support more than 27 million visits each year.
