Tools for 2014 – Relax!

Life is busy, hectic, and responsibilities are at an all time high. To put it simple life is stressful! I know it and you know it. But what do we do? Well, I think we all just need to relax. We need to carve out time to rejuvenate. Now I know that’s hard because I stay pretty busy myself. But, I have found that you can replace some other things you do with times of rest and rejuvenation.
Here are some examples in no particular order:, 5 eBooks for $7.40!

  • Instead of going out shopping – get a massage

Be sure to check out our website sponsor, Skin Solutions for their Massage Therapy services – they offer couples massage, therapeutic & even hot stone massage!  If you’re looking for a deal – here is a great place to get a massage at a great price. Cumming Med Spa has a Groupon deal going on. Click here for more info! I went there a couple of months ago for a massage and it was great!

  • I know it’s cold right now, but instead of running errands – go for a walk every once in a while

Forsyth County has great walking trails between all our parks and the Greenway. Enjoy them! Click here for more info on our parks.

  • Instead of getting lost on social media – disconnect more

I just read this blog a few days ago and it did inspire me. We do spend too much time on our phones. It’s a great practice to disconnect nightly. We don’t need to escape on our phones. Click here to read the blog on divorcing your phone.

  • Instead of cooking at home – go out to eat

I have it factored into our schedule that we eat out at least once a week. This takes the pressure off me from cooking every single night! It’s like a night off. And those nights are always less stressful for me.

  • Make time to pamper  yourself every now & then!

Not only can you get a massage with our website sponsor, Skin Solutions, but you can also get a relaxing facial, a beautiful makeover, and even take yoga classes with Yoga Selah!  Now’s actually a great time to schedule a little pampering by attending their Wellness Event on January 24th.  Receive a 30 minute Medi-Facial or Target Massage AND 30 minutes of restorative yoga for just $55.  Click here for more information.
