Thought for the Day

Check out what my 9-year-old gave me as a birthday present. It’s in wood…

 

Homemade shimmer body scrub

Here’s how to get soft skin in the shower and shimmer a little for Christmas parties as well!

This recipe comes from Hello Glow, you can check out the original here.

Apart from the shimmer part (mica, which you can leave out if you don’t want to shimmer), it uses store cupboard ingredients.

Ingredients

1/3 cup (75 ml) brown sugar

1/3 cup (75 ml) white sugar

2 tbs (30 ml) finely ground coffee

1 tsp (5 ml) gold or silver cosmetic mica

2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil (or sunflower or grapeseed)

Mix everything together and put into a jar.

Use before you shower, i.e. scrub all over DRY skin in the shower then rinse off. It should leave you with glowing skin and a subtle shimmer.

Don’t forget to rinse the bath tub/shower after to get rid of any traces of oil which can make the surface slippery

10 steps to a happier you – step ten

Step 10: Sleep on it

If you’re feeling moody, depressed and irritable, it could just be down to the fact that you’re not getting enough sleep.

It has a huge impact on our physical health, energy and mood.

After just one night’s lost sleep, our immunity-boosting, disease-fighting cells drop by over a quarter, while the stress-inducing hormone cortisol increases by a half.

Aim to get eight hours sleep every 24 hours.

Try going to bed an hour earlier, or having a catnap when you get home from work.

10 steps to a happier you – step nine

Step 9: Discover your happiness triggers

Are you concentrating on what’s supposed to make you happy, rather than what actually does?

We’re often told by other people, TV or self-help books what will make us happy, but rather than following other people’s advice, you need to find out for yourself.

Try this exercise to discover your happiness triggers:

Remember a time in the past when you were really happy.

It could be short or long – a sunny afternoon reading in the park, a family holiday, or lunch with friends.

Notice the things around you and how good you feel.

Discover what it is about the situation that’s making you happy.

Is it companionship? Peace and quiet? Beautiful countryside? Good food?

Once you’ve established what makes you feel good, you can concentrate on finding it again.

If you’re feeling particularly stressed or unhappy, you can also use this exercise to revisit your happy memory and feel good again.

So what are my happiness triggers?

There is one I don’t even have to think about it, it’s something I do every night.

I go into my children’s room and watch them sleeping.

I think there is nothing so beautiful as a child sleeping, they look so angelic even if you know they have been little devils in the daytime.

I find it a very peaceful moment and instantly calming and it always makes me smile.

Lots of memories also of walking up various mountains and the fantastic scenery that brought – though, now I think about it, not necessarily mountains.

I went for an early morning walk a few years ago with my sister and her dogs, in the rolling English countryside near her home. There was a light mist lying over everything and it was very quiet.

So my triggers there were definitely the beautiful countryside – I think nature is always a wonder to behold.

But the company also was important – family, friends.

As I sit here and think, I find other happy memories … but I’ll keep them to myself and let you think of yours.

Feel free to share them with me.

Lest we forget
