A Day Away to Rejuvenate
On occasion, someone will ask me if I ever get claustrophobic in Our Little House.
Most of the time, I don’t, but sometimes, like anyone, I need to get away.
It’s been an especially rough couple of weeks with all of the illness and trying to stay on top of work around the house and the work I do to make money.
The truth is, that no matter what size of a house we live in, we all need a little break now and again.
So, I’m working hard to get ahead of my work and I’ve cleared the clutter and cleaned the house so I can take a “Me Day” sometime this weekend.
I’m especially looking forward to a relaxing, rejuvenating therapeutic massage. I know, many people think this is a luxury that only helps relax our minds, but there are really physical benefits to a massage.
A deep tissue massage can release toxins held in the body and loosening these toxins up helps them flush out of our system. I know I have plenty of toxins trapped right now.
My massage therapist was so good in the city, I’ve been hesitant to try one here without a recommendation from someone who knows a really good therapeutic massage (I don’t have the money to waste). We have a new studio in town. The owner teaches yoga and is a licensed massage therapist. The owner of our local health food store recommended her, so I’m hoping I’m not disappointed!
Other things that will help relax and rejuvenate me:
- Getting my haircut
- Eating sushi. Having a meal of my favorite food, especially in a place where the staff is so friendly is relaxing.
- Getting a special frappe coffee at our locally owned coffee house. The perfect end to a fun day.
I guarantee I will come home relaxed and refreshed and ready to tackle whatever the next week throws at me!
