Detox Bath

Soothing Sundays are back! 

I've been busy practicing some radical self care. One part of that has been taking detox baths.  I'd heard of these awhile ago and thought they were just snake oil, but my health coach gave me a simple recipe that seems to work.  

Simple Detox Bath

1 lb Baking Soda

1 lb Sea Salt

1 lb Epsom Salts

This works out to roughly 2 cups each per ingredient.  Steer clear of adding essential oils or fragrances.  Use bath water as hot as you can stand and try to stay in it for at least 30 minutes. The longer the better.*

I find I feel energized when I complete one of these.  Leave me a note in the comments if you like and let me know how it goes for you.

*As always, consult your doctor before trying any new snake oil. ;-)

Early To Bed.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, does more wonders for the spirit than heading to bed early.  Bonus points if the rain in coming down outside and you have a warm blanket pulled up against your chin.  

After a fun work/play weekend out in Lockeford visiting with family, doing some organizing and playing with Pony, I'm pooped.   I'm typing this from bed.  After I finish, it's time to read for a bit and then lights out. 

This week I challenge you to head to bed early too.  Pick one night - if you don't have kids, this will be easier, but if you do, maybe see if the other caretaker can help put them down for the evening.   

Dim the lights.  Light a candle.  Snuggle up with that blanket.  Maybe read a chapter in a good book.  

I'll see you in the morning, well rested and ready to go.
