Oh Yeah...That's Right...I'm In My 40s Giveaway Part 2


You know what the best thing is about being in your 40s? You can say "Been there, done that" and it is most likely true. Especially for me. I almost feel bad for my son, because he so really cannot get anything past me. However, I do not want to look like I have been there and done that. I want to look fresh and cute. Okay how about cute? Fresh might not be the adjective for me anymore, but (and if I could type that in a sing song way I would)...I have been fortunate enough to get a chance to try a little something to get me through thanks to Anna from Hachette Book Group. Not only do I get to try this but so will five readers! YAY!!!!! What is that little something?

Main Entry:
Any other additional entries will be counted IF this one is done first. This is actually about destressing which really I think is a beauty and health necessity. What do you do to destress or decompress? I have a few things that I like to do. One is color in coloring books. I don't know why, but when I pick up a vintage coloring book and just get my crayon action going, I feel much calmer and more serene. I think it just takes me back to childhood.

I play my flute to de-stress. If I'm really tired though and feeling like I don't want to play (or the kids are asleep) I will take a bubblebath and read a magazine.

To destress I go down to the ocean. I live on an island, so I don't have to go far; I find the ocean extremely calming and peaceful.

I get a massage. If I can't get in to get one, I read a book in the hot tub.

lilsnobelle said...

To destress I go outside and garden, or I take a hot bath and read a book at the same time. I have 5 kids so I am constantly destressing, or trying to anyways.

Bcteagirl said...

To destress I drink a cup of tea, read a book, soak in the tub, or walk in the forest. Not all at once of course! :P Very hard to find a tub in the forest. Thanks for the contest! :)
