Stress is a cumulative color. It doesn’t just show you up in your irritability and your seeming lack of sleep. It shows up in your face and your looks. Someone who’s stressed will never quite feel or look their best. You need to de-stress and there are plenty of products on the market that can do just that. I’ve boiled them down to five products we believe everyone should have at home.
Rituals Qi Serum isn’t just something that will make you feel relaxed and ready to take on the rest of the day. It’s created using Yi Yi Ren and Chinese peppermint. It’s a lightweight cream that will help with soothing your mind and reducing many of the lines in your skin.
It’s especially useful around the eyes, where the first visible signs of stress are usually found. Softening the skin will get rid of a lot of the tension in your face.
Lavender is well-known for its relaxing qualities. It’s why so many people tend to purchase air fresheners in lavender. HollyBeth Organics Lavender Mist is a perfect way to get a whiff of relaxation when you need it. Spread some on your skin to clear your sinuses and the back of your throat.
And the bonus is that it will also make you smell more appealing, so it doubles as a perfume.
If you don’t have time to go for a massage or spend an evening lying on the sofa, the Essio Aromatherapy Shower Kit is the next best thing available to you. After you’ve washed, you can cover yourself in some of these essential oils. This kit contains a variety of relaxing oils that activate with the warm water of your shower.
It will also fill your room with healing scents, which will result in you feeling relaxed and ready to take on your next big challenge.
The SoundSpa is a device that will produce natural sounds to help you drift away. One of the reasons why people become so stressed is because of all the noise going on around them. They can never enjoy the sound of silence or just let their mind drift away. The SoundSpa can be used at times when you’re feeling stressed or just to help you drift away into a more natural sleep.
Exfoliating is important. It increases the flow of oxygenated blood to your face and various other areas of the body. This is what leaves people looking radiant and glowing. Simple Sugars Lilac Body Scrub is an all-natural blend that will leave you looking and feeling relaxed and de-stressed.
It’s important to take some time for yourself to relax. There’s nothing worse than allowing stress to build. It can be damaging for both physical and mental health, so take some time out and treat yourself. These five products should be found in everyone’s home.

Hey Yall! How was your three day weekend? Is your child/children on winter break this week?
My girls' school district only had the three-day break with the girls returning to school on Tuesday with a couple of shorts days due to Parent-Teacher Conferences.
Yeah, just like the title said...Screw Coffee! The best part of waking up is not having Folgers in my cup! I'm done drinking coffee, I gave coffee the ax years ago and here's why.
Waking up in the mornings consists of weekly chaos of getting the kids ready for school and dropping them off, and me getting to work without being late. You all probably know this all too well.
One of the most exciting times for families is planning trips together throughout the year. Exploring a new location and trying different activities will make it easy to create memories and form stronger bonds. When planning your next family vacation, there are a few destinations to consider visiting.
San Diego, CA
San Diego is home to several different beaches and is a great place to visit in each season of the year for its 70-degree weather. Visit Balboa Park where you can take a bike ride or explore one of the museums that are available. Coronado Island is another hot spot in the destination where you can view the historic architecture of the Hotel Del or take a walk on the beach.
Yosemite National Park
When you want to spend time in the great outdoors and unplug from technology, Yosemite National Park is a beautiful location to enjoy different activities. According to nps.gov, the park boasts lush waterfalls and ancient grand sequoias in a vast area that spans over 1,200 square miles. You can stay in tents at one of the campgrounds or book a room at the Yosemite hotel that is on the grounds. Some of the best activities to enjoy while spending time at the park include fishing, biking, hiking, ice skating, playing tennis, rafting, and going horse or mule riding throughout the year.
Visit Peru where your family can have an educational experience that includes exploring the Manú National Park or viewing historical items that are on display at the Museo Larco. Consult the services of an agency like Kuoda Personalized Travel to book excursions and create your itinerary.

Hey Yall! How has your week been going for ya? How was your Valentine's Day?
The past two years on that special love day I took a mini trip, remember Miami and Houston? This year, we kept it local with me having a delicious lunch and dinner at a couple of restaurants out here in Atlanta. Let's just say I'm still full and not even thinking about food for the rest of the week. I probably gained like 10 lbs that day, and I made sure to hit the gym to burn all those calories I ate. Talk about feeling huge and bloated! UGH!
