Pamper Yourself
You've been working hard lately, and now it's time to take a little pampering break. That's right, guys: I want you to take a break from your life! Forget about whatever it is you think you have to do and give yourself some TLC. To hell with the laundry, the dishes, the accounting, the errands, and even the Internet! Turn your cell phone off and try these tips tonight:

Soak in a tub. Nothing feels quite as decadent as a warm bath. Add some essential oils — such as lavender and rosemary — or organic bubble bath. Place some candles around the bathroom and then soak away the stress.

Take time out to read. Whether it's a book, your favorite magazine, or the newspaper, set yourself up in a quiet place and indulge yourself without interruption.

Make a pampering appointment. Get a new haircut, go for a manicure and pedicure, or get a professional shave at the barber's.

Go to a movie. Think you don't have time to catch the latest flick? Think again. This is your downtime, kiddo. Grab some air-popped popcorn — but hold the butter — and go Hollywood!

Sleep in. Seriously, it feels so great to just turn the alarm off before you hop into bed. Give yourself permission to sleep, sleep, sleep the morning away.

Enjoy it while you can — because tomorrow it's back to work!

    Love it! That is so what I did in Miami! Slept in every day (except when we had to fly back). Didn't rush anything. Only checked my email etc a few times, but NEVER checked my work account. I swam in the pool alot or floated at least in the sun. I read the whole Twilight book in 3 days! I just took time for me and it was great!

    Once a year, on my birthday, I take no calls and do whatever I want all day. That's all I can fit into a year though!

    I just read my email from her to. I so agree with it. Sometimes we have to take time for ourselves because if we're not good to ourselves we'll be no good to anyone else. Thanks for sharing Janel!
