PLAY in The DIRT.....

Plants and Flowers-
Pretty to look at...... plus they clean the air ( good for YOU).

My RELAXATION tip for today:

Get some pretty plants/ flowers from the nursery and start getting your hands dirty!

If it's cold outside- get yourself some potting soil,newspaper, pots and great plants- start your SPRING garden inside.

It will lift your spirits, and you will have something beautiful to look at when you are finished !

If you are lucky and live somewhere warm- go putter in the yard for a bit. It is a great stress reliever !

We can't make SPRING come any faster- but playing in some dirt will be fun in the meantime :)

Vacation..... in Your Mind!


Sometimes it's the only time we ever really RELAX

Today I think we should all pretend to be on vacation!

Rent movies, buy lots of magazines, play games :)
Forget about cleaning the HOUSE and indulge in a little something fun !!

Maybe you will actually feel refreshed- just from doing something

un- inportant  :)   Try it !

A Little Bubble Bath Goes a LONG Way!

Bubble Bath

Aroma therapy works wonders! A little sudsy warm water, yummy smells- and you can just feel the day's worries slip away :)
It doesn't have to take long- and preferably take a bubble bath somewhat close to your bedtime. It is one of life's little LUXURIES, and it's almost FREE!
Remember taking care of you helps you take of others :) So, grab your towel and robe- Lather up and BREATHE in the relaxation.........The Twenty Minute Gift
