Oh, this kind of fits right in with my What's Your Favorite Pick Me Up Song... well, as I keep reading....I keep getting more ideas about what eases and pleases my tired achy body when I'm feeling yucky. I LOVE THE SMELL OF GERANIUM IN THE MORNING....it's the only one that doesn't make me sneeze!
I discovered that hot baths are not so good, mildly warm baths are much more gentler on your nerves and skin. It took quite awhile for me to get used to because I was HOTTUB baby for years....but now if I ever get the water too hot, I really can tell the next morning.
I like Physicians Formula make-up too. I have more allergies than I have hairs on my head...so bubble baths, shampoo, soaps, etc....tend to be more bothersome than anything else. So, I run my mildly warm water, I pour myself a nice glass of ice water in a champagne glass, play my favorite soothing music, I have the luxury of living in a place with a window right above the bathtub...and no neighbors, so I love opening the window....and feeling the wonderful breeze, listening to the music, and melting into my tubby!! I pour just a little of Neurtrogena Body Oil (unscented) into the water and when I'm out....I'm as smooth as a baby's battuttie, and I sleep like a baby too!
I believe that relaxing is so very important to managing our lives with lupus or just managing life period. Having the opportunity to share our frustrations, our joys, our cries of help....is such a relief for all of us!!
So, I'm off to my tubbie time, and cheers to all of you; be well....be good!
