Happiness is a Warm Bath

I’ve been experimenting with bath salts this year. I’ve sent them to my daughters and friends for a variety of occasions. The massage therapist at my chiropractor’s office has encouraged me to spend more time soaking away my stress and stiffness. Since both of my daughters will be home for the holidays I purchased approximately a dozen different oils and we intend to spend a day mixing up new batches that they can take home.

Soak Away Stress

I had a long difficult day this week. Nothing really terrible happened, but I didn’t sleep well the night before, and started the day feeling tired and cranky. Then the car broke down in the rain and I missed an appointment. A work project took way too long and threw off the rest of the day. I stepped on the scale (it went up instead of down), dealt with a nagging injury, felt bad for being inconsistent with this blog and that led to feeling guilty about messiness, and general feelings of frustration and disorganization. You know how these things build up. I went to Target to buy laundry detergent and cleaning things that are absolutely not fun and found a dollar bin item that cheered me up and inspired me to take a time out and put things into perspective. A cute $1.00 bath pillow and appropriately, it looks like a life preserver.
