Sunday Sanctuary - Samantha Hass

An interview with Samantha Hass, Registered Dietitian at F-Factor, on how she creates her own Sunday Sanctuary.

How do you create sanctuary in your life? 

One way that I create sanctuary in my life is by observing the Sabbath. I turn off my phone, computer, and television for 25 hours every Friday night through Saturday night. I also love to cook. It is my way of being creative and unwinding after work. I am also loving pilates right now! It’s a good workout, but also relaxing. I also light candles in my home- I have them all over my house and I light them at night before bed. It helps me to unwind from a busy day and slow down. 

 What are your favorite self-care products? 

I love Bubble baths! No question. If I could take a bubble bath every night I would. I also use a Jade roller, which I try to use every day, but especially after a night of drinking or flying. Essential oils are also a favorite self-care product of mine. I have an orange scented oil for energy and lavender for at night before bed.

What are your favorite Sunday activities that prepare you for the week ahead? 

I always need to get outside on Sundays. I also love to meal prep for the week ahead. I make high fiber muffins, waffles, and pancakes. I grocery shop, usually at Trader Joes, and stock up on my favorite products for the week. I also always make sure to do something fun like play tennis, go bowling, see a Broadway show,  or go out for brunch.

Which L’or de Seraphine candle is your favorite?

It is so hard to choose because I love so many of them, but I think my favorite may be Belvedere. I love the design and the smell. It is so energizing.
