TGIF

It’s Friday.  Finally.  If you’ve had a rough week, take the time this weekend to relax.  Not sure you’ll be able to unwind? Here’s a few relaxation tips:

Stressed is Desserts spelled backwards!

1) Take a deep breath.  Now let it out slowly.   Take another 2 or 3 or however many it takes for you to reach a relaxed state.  It’s a deceptively simple practice that really works wonders.

2) Unplug.  Head outside, but leave the phone, iPod and/or computer behind.  Just sit there and do nothing.  Let your mind wander.  Maybe even take a few deep breaths (I’m telling you, it works). 

3) Enjoy a hot bath or shower.  If you’re feeling really stressed (or indulgent), add an essential oil like lavender or peppermint to the water.  Peppermint oil, by the way, is really great at relieving tension headaches.

4) If you have to work this weekend and find yourself in a stressful situation, walk away, seriously.  Take a break by going on a short walk.  If that’s not an option, try doing switching tasks for a little while.  In other words, take a time out, just like you would in kindergarten.

However you spend the weekend, enjoy!  I’ll see  you back for the madness of a new week (and new music) on Monday.
