Of course, there have been times in the past when my joints were too sore, tender and achy to enjoy any type of massage, but not this time. My back was a little tight from carrying Deirdre around in the sling (and from hunching over to nurse, says the massage therapist), but about 15 minutes of massage worked out any soreness that was there. The rest of the time was just cake!
Now I invite you to take some time to indulge yourself, however you see fit. Don't have the opportunity (or the desire) for a full-on body wrap? Maybe you'd prefer a manicure or a pedicure. Perhaps you'd rather indulge your taste buds with a decadent dessert or a double-dipped ice cream cone. Whatever you choose, take a few minutes this week to do something special for yourself. You may be out of practice because it's been awhile. But consider this your Living Well homework...I expect a report in the morning!
If you need motivation, here are a few shots of Deirdre taking it easy and treating herself right. If, at 4 months, she can figure it out, so can you!
