I am committed to my journey to simplify 34 with a focus on self-care and wellness. During the past five years, I have gained 15 pounds on top of the “30+” that piled on in my 50’s. A girl cannot be at a desk all day, and blog two to three hours when home. It’s not healthy. Yesterday, reality checked in when I was measured and weighed. When I finish today’s post, it will be close to 5:40am, at which time I will don my “athleisure” to be at the gym by 6am. I have three days with a trainer. I hope to have this body in a size 8 a year from now, when I dance with our son at his wedding. ( realistically . . . I will embrace a 10.)
My newest mantra defines a slight change of direction here on 34.
“keep it simple and share“. . . en français . . . ” rester simple et partager“. . .
(Yes, there will still be the French nuances that feed my whimsical self.)
Most of my Wednesday posts will be devoted to special wellness treats . . . either posts of my own, or reference to posts by others, bookmarked to inspire, heal and treat me.
As a BIG believer in the concept of “Spa at home”, I have been busy building my own personal “Apothecary” of nature’s luxuries.
I keep a small assortment of “tisane’s” around the house.
noun ti·sane \ti-ˈzan, -ˈzän\
: an infusion (as of dried herbs) used as a beverage or for medicinal effects.
After landing at “a Better Happier St Sebastian” on 3-28-16, I couldn’t think of a better place to take you for inspiring a “tea steam facial at home“.
When finished “treating” your outside self, I recommend finishing this ritual by pouring a fresh cup for your inside self, too. Now that it’s summertime, you may wish to add ice to your sipping blend.
“rester ∼ simple”
