How To Relax in 5 Minutes Flat Or Candles Are NOT Just A Single Lady Cliché

LitCandlesWithFlameSometimes it can feel like between all our responsibilities getting in any relaxation happens in short bursts and in-between all of our obligations.  We all know the cultural clichés we got in the 90s with women and their scented candles but come on who doesn’t find a candle soothing? Canyon Ranch (the experts on relaxation by far) says :

“One of the more powerful ways to enjoy the beauty of candlelight is during a moment of stillness and solitude, when you turn off the world and tune into yourself.”

Now we aren’t quite willing to go so far as Canyon Ranch saying “the flame’s soft illumination touches the soul” but we certainly find it soothing to light a candle, turn down the lights,  put in a few aromatherapy drops into the hot wax, do some deep breathing and sink into a mindfulness and meditation app like Calm.com. The comforting ambience with flattering lighting sounds perfectly relaxing to us.  Image Via Flickr
