Make Time to Relax

comments 0

Stress can cause a lot of negative things in our lives, especially when it comes down to how you feel each and every day. As we enter August, remember that you should take time to relax this month, before all of the back to school craziness starts. By doing something nice for yourself, like indulging in a good cup of tea or a warm bath, you’re giving yourself the chance to destress and get focused on what really matters as you enter autumn. If you’ve had a busy summer so far and want to take time out of your packed schedule to pamper and rejuvenate, consider some of these great ideas on how you can treat yourself:

1.Take a hot bath and indulge in some of the body pampering treatments that come in this luxurious Bath Gift Basket from Filled with lotions, potions, and other deliciously scented delights, this gift is the perfect way to treat yourself to a day at the spa without having to leave your home.

2.Sit down with a new novel in your favorite armchair and make time to actually read and get into it. Turn off the TV and stay focused. This time is for you and your book.

3.Have a movie night that’s dedicated to just popcorn, chocolates, and having a great time with your best girlfriends as you work through your favorite movies of all time.

4.Take time every day to breath from your belly and just clear your thoughts. Use a few minutes to meditate and get yourself back to Earth.

5.Indulge in a great meal at a favorite restaurant. Make a reservation to be sure that you get in and then spend an entire evening that’s dedicated to appreciating the flavors and having a good conversation. Call a babysitter to be sure there’s no time limit.

We’re very excited to report that yesterday the inaugural flight from New York to our very own Denver International Airport on Pet Airways took place! This very innovative pet airline is flying pets in the cabin with a trained pet attendant tending to their needs, rather than in the cold and potentially dangerous cargo hold like major airlines do. All of us at applaud Pet Airways, and hope they continue to see only success. Our pets are our family, and it’s about time airlines started treated animals with more respect. Pet Airways even provides a pet carrier for your pet, and your pet is continually tended to! Check out the Pet Airways Blog, Twitter, and Facebook page, too.
