Refresh Renew You

Good Morning All!

I have been thinking about how very daily life can be. How we can get into the same rut, grind, routine and cater to everyone else’s needs but our own. Especially this time of year for all you moms out there. The kids are back to school and you’re doing homework, activities, being the school-mom, sports-mom, chauffeur etc… I’m tired just typing it!

We need to be refreshed and renewed in body and mind every now and again. Sort of like re-charging, re-energizing batteries to run a radio or toy. We humans need a boost of energy as well.

Here is a definition of what it is to ReNew

To make new again; to restore to freshness, perfection, or vigor; to give new life to; to rejuvenate; to reestablish; to recreate; to rebuild; Specifically, to substitute for (an old obligation or right) a new one of the same nature; to continue in force; to make again.

We all need that every now and again. I know I sure do!

Here are some simple ways to renew and refresh so now you have no excuses to not take a little time out for yourself! 🙂

Time-Out Adult Style

Take some time each day just for yourself, even if it’s just 15-20-30 minutes.

  • Take time to pray & meditate – just being quiet and shutting out daily noise.
  • Spend time doing something you really enjoy.
  • Read a chapter in the book your reading.
  • Take a nice walk.
  • Take a power nap.
  • Take a Relaxing soak in a hot bath.

Just 20 to 30 minutes will energize you and help you maintain a better frame of mind.

Here is a recipe for a great relaxing aromatherapy bath soak

Basic Salt Soak & Aromatherapy Bath Formula:

Minerals and salts make the bath water feel silky and leave your skin cleansed and soft.

1 cup sea salts, 2 cups baking soda, 1 cup Epsom salts, 1 to 2 tablespoons glycerin per bath and 10-15 drops of lavender essential oil.

Combine the sea salts, baking soda, and Epsom salts in a bowl. Stir to blend. 

Pour 1/4 cup or so into the bath while the tub is filling. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons glycerin and the 10-15 drops of lavender essential oil directly to the bath water – The glycerin will keep your skin from drying out (more for dry skin, less for oily skin) and the lavender essential oil will help sooth and calm you.

Preparation time: 2 to 3 minutes  Shelf life: Indefinite Storage: Glass jar with a screw top Caution: Do not take hot baths and salt baths (including Epsom salt baths) if you have heart trouble, high blood pressure, or are diabetic.

Have a Beautiful Day! Hope You Get To Renew Yourself Soon!

All The Best To You!!!
