After snowy walkway is finally shoveled, what comes next?


Just wanted to share these two recommendations for relaxing during this busy season. I don’t know about you, but when I finish shoveling lots of snow in the cold (like last night), I like to do one of two things.

If time is short, I make hot chocolate (easy in the microwave) and top it off with Cool Whip (a staple in our freezer). Then I grab my People magazine and sit for a spell.

If time is not an issue, I take a hot bath, just like a little kid. (People magazine comes here as well.) Sometimes I add bubbles or some body oil. The one I’m using now is ESPA Restorative Body Oil. It’s a blend of sweet orange, rose geranium and lavender. It smells yummy and makes my skin soft.

I also recommend watching a holiday movie on the Hallmark channel. Sure, you know how it’s going to end, but at least it’s happy. Happy is good.

What are you doing to relax and reduce stress these days?
