Woohoo! It’s that time of year again. My feed’s all look freezing!
I thought I’d bring you all some summer vibes today to combat storm Juno and the 13+ inches left in her wake. I’ve been on a mission to find balance lately: it seems like the second I get through all my e-mails, voicemails or tasks, there’s a whole set of new ones to go through. It’s wonderful, exciting and a little overwhelming all at once, and I’ve been trying to manage it the best I can. R e l a x. My favorite mantra!
Here are my 3 favorite ways to relax recently:
3. Long, Luxurious Baths . . .
I’ve been loving my epsom and dead sea salt baths lately, even taking them early in the morning or early in the afternoon again the way I was when I was super-detoxing off my pharmaceuticals medication. They’re relaxing, rejuvenating, detoxifying, cleansing and overall, warm!! Yes, even in Southern California, I appreciate my warm baths. Throw a little rose water and oil in for an ultra sexy, self-love finish.
2. Long, Thoughtful Walks . . .
I enjoy caffeine free tea and long walks on the beach. No, really. I’m lucky enough to live a stones throw from the beach in San Diego, and I make it down there once a day. Even when I lived in New York, I used to bundle up – two sweaters, leggings, tights, jeans, mittens, coat, scarves and hat – and take long walks in the freezing cold, getting my blood running and my thoughts cleared out. They’re incredible for gaining perspective and a good sense of self.
1. Awesome, Kickass Books . . .
I’ve been reading a ton lately. From Tony Robbin’s Money: Master The Game, to The Impersonal Life to Vasistha’s Yoga, books have been my savior not only while I was writing my first book ever, but to nurture my ever word-loving soul once I was done. They are my dearest companions in times of stress, and they make it into every single bath with me (oo-la-la!) Picking up a good book has always been my favorite therapy. I recommend to it all!
This adorable cropped t-shirt from American Tee really ties it all together!
