Like this? Then share it with your friends! “Progressive Muscle Relaxation”. Sounds like a complicated way to relieve stress, doesn’t it? I’m going to let you in on how easy is it, and how much it can help relieve some of the stress in your life…and your body. Backache by Graur Razvan Ionut When you’re under stress, tension tends to be stored in your muscles, causing headaches, back aches, and any number of aches, pains and illnesses. Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) is an easy, and very effective way to release that tension. The idea behind it is simple: to focus on specific muscles, contracting each one for 8 to 10Read More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! Have you ever stopped to think about what the sayings we use everyday mean? “When it rains, it pours”. That just about sums up the last two weeks around our house. It’s been chock-full of drama, action and adventure, so much so that you could write a movie about it. So how do I stay calm and stress free through it all? It’s really tough, but I certainly try. Here are some tips to help get you through the action adventure movie you call your life: Take 10: Just like actors on a movie set, you haveRead More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! We always think of “stress” as being an adult issue, but you’d be surprised how much stress kids are under. School, after-school activities, sports: these are all causes of stress for kids these days. Add to this the things they need to do every day like chores and other family activities, and you have a recipe for disaster. So how do we help kids manage their stress? It’s as easy as 1 – 2 – 3… Don’t overschedule. Setting limits for kids is a parent’s/guardian’s job. We need to teach them to manage their time wisely, andRead More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! It’s been tough to get back into the swing of things after getting back from a much-needed vacation, and getting the kids back to school and activities. The phrase “too much to do, and too little time” doesn’t even begin to describe it. Whether you have kids or not, I know that all of you can relate in one area of your life or another. This summer has been an interesting one. Not working full-time at a job that I was tired of doing. Being home with the kids a LOT more than I think I orRead More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! As a lot of you may know, I’m a mobile spa consultant and specialize in at-home spa treatments. The one thing I’m told often is:”I don’t have time to do this every day”. So I’m here ro show you how to pamper yourself in 5 minutes or less in the morning by giving yourself a “Busy Girl Facial”! Normally, when you go to a spa, they wash your face with a cleanser, and then they might apply a scrub. And last but not least, they will probably do some sort of antioxidant mask. I can’t even begin to tellRead More →

Like this? Then share it with your friends! You saw in my previous post why exfoliation is important. So you can’t afford $150 to go to an esthetician every few weeks for a light chemical peel, and you don’t want to get a deep chemical peel because of the risks of burns and the recovery period. So now what? You can exfoliate at home, with no risk and as often as 1 to 3 times a week. You’ll need both a chemical peel, also called an acid peel, and dermabrasion. A good rotating brush makes the work easier as well. I’ve seen a vibrating brush, but I’m not really sureRead More →

So you had your manicure and pedicure last week, but your hands and feet are already feeling dry and rough. How do you combat that without having to go multiple times a week and breaking the bank? Why not try supplementing your professional mani/pedi with regular mini mani’s and pedi’s at home?!Read More →

Like this? Then share it on Facebook! Whether you’re going to the beach this summer, going to the mountains, or enjoying a “staycation”, you can relax, refresh & renew. If there’s nothing else that I’ve learned in this business, you can have a spa day wherever you are. Let me show you how…. It doesn’t take much: a tote with a few products and an MP3 player! I suggest a small spa tote, but any small bag will do. Just make sure that it keeps any products upright that can spill. Mine is cheetah print BC Spa tote. I figure if I’m going to doRead More →
