Is It Possible To Turn This Type A Into A Type B... and Do I Even Want To?

My Own Personal Cocoon

My Own Personal Cocoon

Do any of you remember the movie Cocoon? If you’re younger than me, you might not. It’s a Ron Howard movie that came out in 1985 about a bunch of elderly people that tap into the fountain of youth by swimming in some supernaturally charged […]

I Think I Broke Myself – For Realz

I Think I Broke Myself – For Realz

The wheels finally fell off the wagon when I was trying to juggle appointments so that I could fit in my saltwater float and another facial during the same week as the preschool parade, a committee meeting, book club, lunch with visiting family, and a […]

Look Into My Eyes… or That Time I Was Hypnotized

Look Into My Eyes… or That Time I Was Hypnotized

So Thursday I had an experience I’ve never had before – I was hypnotized. Sounds crazy, right? The picture above is the face of a person going to get hypnotized – I had no idea what to expect! Before Thursday my impressions of hypnosis included […]

I Think I Found A Real Live Wizard

I Think I Found A Real Live Wizard

I started out my morning with some trepidation. It is not often that one can muster excitement about getting poked with needles, after all. Thankfully, multiple friends who knew of my hesitation sent me encouraging messages – I love acupuncture! It doesn’t really hurt at […]

On Pins And Needles

On Pins And Needles

Today I continue my path towards relaxation by trying acupuncture at Bee Cave Acupuncture & Nutrition – I’ll be posting about my experience tomorrow. For now you can read a little about acupuncture and its history – pretty interesting stuff it turns out! Here’s the […]

Dance Like Elaine… or Sofia

Dance Like Elaine… or Sofia

Happy Good Friday! Children at home from school means no relaxing around here, but I did manage to meditate for my 10 minutes this morning. The spotty meditation trend lives to see another day 😉 Here’s a little laugh to kick off your weekend. Do […]

I Shouldn’t Have Been Allowed To Drive

I Shouldn’t Have Been Allowed To Drive

I am a facial virgin-ish. To clarify, I’m not an actual facial virgin – yesterday was my fourth – hence the ish. Two of the four were so forgettable that I actually forgot them when yesterday’s esthetician extraordinaire, Emma, asked me if I’d ever had […]

Want To Try Your Luck? – Let The Giveaways Begin!

Want To Try Your Luck? – Let The Giveaways Begin!

As you’ve heard me say, while March was the “Month of Failure,” April is the “Month of Relaxation”. Much better ring, don’t you think? Throughout the month I’ll be trying all types of ways to relax, both the body and mind, and you can enter to win […]

And, Just Like That I’m Off The Wagon

And, Just Like That I’m Off The Wagon

Well, meditation hasn’t gone exactly to plan. Actually, it has if the plan was to do it for two days straight and then stop completely. I managed to get myself taken down pretty hard by what turned into a sinus infection last week. You might […]

Om – Or How To Keep Breathing When You Live In A Madhouse

Om – Or How To Keep Breathing When You Live In A Madhouse

Here’s the general rundown for April – aka “The Month of Relaxation”. This week I’ll explore meditation and report back on my progress. Then, for the next three weeks I’ll try: acupuncture, hypnosis (!), a saltwater float (!), a facial, massage, acupressure, and some “Zen” at […]

Ice Ice Cold: Cold-Calling & Giveaways In Your Future

Ice Ice Cold: Cold-Calling & Giveaways In Your Future

My final challenge of March was to cold call. Wow, that sounds like fun…  Where did my fear of cold calling come from you ask? One summer in high school, encouraged to get a summer job, I perused the want ads in the paper (Back […]
