I try to make "me time" a thing every Sunday evening before beginning the week. My favorite thing to do is draw a hot bath, throw in some Lavendar essential oils and epsom salts, light a candle, and put on some meditation music. It's just as heavenly as it sounds. I also like to choose a stone from the box pictured above and focus on the items the stone is said to heal. I make whatever the stone is listed to heal my mantra for the week. I close my eyes, hold the stone to my heart and take several deep breaths. I then keep the stone on my bedside table throughout the week as a reminder of my mantra.
I'm no healing stone expert so what I like about this set is that it is very much for beginners learning about the properties of these balancing tools. Even if they don't work their magic on me as some people believe they are meant to, they do allow me to take a moment and focus on positively moving forward each week. For that alone, I am thankful.
Here's a list of what's in the box and what they're meant for:

It's hard to choose one song over another, but this song is one of my absolute favorites:
