Become a Bathing Beauty . . .

I've been working hard at loosing weight, and have even set up a blog, because a lot of my friends wanted to know what I was doing.
Part of my "Life Style" change includes reading and learning more about the foods that I eat, working more exercise into the day and so forth. Densie Austin's website and newsletters really help. They're down to earth and simple things that a "normal" person can do.
This morning there was an article in her newsletter that I wanted to share with you that has some great info to be shared with those just looking to releave stress . . . .

Feel Great!
Become a Bathing Beauty!

Denise Austin's Morning Stretch

There's nothing like a hot shower or bath before crawling into bed at night. And did you know that establishing a before-bed bathing routine can actually help you make the most of your z's? That's right! When you take a warm bath or shower, your body temperature rises while you're in the water, and it gradually cools once you step out. That change in temperature makes you drowsy and sends a signal to your brain that it's time to go to sleep.

A soothing shower or bath also relaxes your muscles, which also sets you up for a good night's rest. And the time spent lathering up can act as an effective buffer between the whirl of your everyday life and your bed — a place where all that anxiety doesn't belong!

Try it tonight! Take a warm shower, using some of your favorite. yummy-smelling bath products. Then change into your softest pajamas and climb into your bed, made up with fresh, cool sheets. Enjoy! The night is yours for a long, lovely sleep.

I am going to give it a try tonight with our Dead Sea's Bath Salts.
