My BEST TIPS to RELAX ALREADY

1 May

 

Hooray for MAY!

April was National Stress Awareness Month… which frankly was rather stressful.

Remembering to breathe and all that nonsense.  Geez, what a chore!

 

Ahhhh!

Ahhhh!

My BEST TIPS to RELAX ALREADY

  • Have coffee (for the beans) in the a.m. and red wine (for the antioxidants) in the p.m.
  • Eat quality dark chocolate daily in amounts larger than your cell phone but smaller than your head.
  • When feeling anxious, play with something small and furry… maybe a cat or dog or ? Use your imagination.
  • Smile effortlessly ’til it hurts.
  • Help someone else… unless it involves excessive blood loss or advanced calculus.
  • Help someone else help you. Particularly satisfying! Requires an appreciation for manipulation, or as most successful leaders refer to it – motivation.
  • Laugh for no reason ’til you develop TMJ or until you are shunned by family, friends, and lonely strangers on the street.
  •  Instead of an onerous work-out in the gym, take a nap with a pair of earplugs and a gas mask.
  • Don’t drink green tea unless you love green tea. You know it and I know it – sometimes it tastes like expensive hand soap.
  • Have your kids and spouse write a gratitude list. Hopefully you’ll be mentioned now and then. This will make you feel good. Then request a massage… if they are truly grateful, they will comply.

MAY DAY!   MAY DAY!

After a long winter and a chilly, slow start to spring…

(you may have noticed) it’s finally May.

The spring fever many of us felt in April was merely the flu.

So it’s time to squeeze in a celebration of spring before Memorial Day whacks us like a Wasabi wiener and folks (certainly not me) are complaining about how hot it is.

Is it hot in here or is it just me? […]
