Whether we work, care for kids, or drive in heavy traffic, we all know stress. It can make us sick, body and mind. So, I decided to write a little journal on de-stressing and relaxation. Or just plain pampering ourselves, we deserve it! As most, I have a stressful life at times in my home so counter pro-action against it can help. Here is a few. If you can add to the list, please do!!                                                                                                                                    

Mood Lifters-
1.Lighting can recreate a relaxing atmosphere. My favorite, candles can add a relaxing ambiance to any room but in the bath they are heaven. Put them on the counter, line the side of the tub with them.I have blue night lights, they work too.
2.A nice fragrance like rose or lavender oil to your bath water. Room fresheners are good, oil lamps made for this or the plug-ins are nice too. (You can pamper in your shower too)
3.Mellow music (I find a lot on U-tube) is a wonderful mood booster. Good headphones work some miracles to music.
4. Clean fresh and great smelling sheets (I spray some of my perfume) lightly, so good.
5. Next time you change sheets skrinkle a favorite body powder on fitted sheets where your feet are. It makes your feet feel like silk in bed.
6.Some deep breathing exercises before bed then slow deliberate steady breathing while falling asleep. While getting there think happy thoughts or travel in your mind, not the Indy 500! But travel back to favorite spots you really enjoyed, I like to see the tall giant pine trees, you are laying on a blanket looking up at the beautiful pines, smelling them, now see the awesome stars that look so close like you could reach out and grab one.
7. Slow massage of your temples and head can be so relaxing! What do you do to relax??

A prayer to God, a few words, a few lines, while falling asleep.
