Spa Night: Cucumber Mask & Calming Yoga 6/17/2010
If you've been reading, I'm very stressed out lately. Sleep does not come to visit very often and when it does, it doesn't stay long. So I've been searching for ways to stay calm and encourage calm at bedtime in the hope of catching that chariot ride to dreamland. I pray. Read my devotions. Sing. Shine my sink. Take an evening walk with Baby Boy. And now I'm going to try some easy yoga. There are a few positions that supposedly are great for anxiety attacks, depression and insomnia. There are lots of videos out there, but I liked this one and how well she explained it all. So yes, I'll be trying this as part of my relaxation this Spa Night. We'll see if it works!
Also, I've scheduled an appointment at the local beauty college. Something I've sorely missed since the move. A haircut and facial for less than twenty bucks? Yes, please! The students do a wonderful job, too. I know there is one just outside the town where our new home is located, but without a car, I haven't had the chance to check it out. I will probably go once a month when we get permanent transportation because I love a good beauty bargain and I love being pampered! So, have you taken time for you this week? Make the time. Even if it's just for a long bubble bath. I promise, you won't regret it. Browse my collection of Spa Night Recipes and take a virtual trip to relaxation, using ingredients from your kitchen cabinets! Happy pampering....
