How to wash away tension from the day

Image
How do you relieve tension from work or stressful life situations? There are many ways I try to relieve tension.  At first I take a moment and try to clear my mind.  Meditation is a great relaxation tool.  Also many times I distract myself with other diversions; such as a mindless comedy show or a computer game.  The diversions relieve your mind of any thoughts of the day.
Exercise also can increase the good hormones in your body and neutralize the bad ones.  Drinking plenty of water is also essential so that the toxins don't buildup and cause illness or injury in the body.  
A hot shower, no matter when it is, is always welcome.  Finally, plenty of rest is as important as any of the other stress reducers.

Let me hear from you and what really works for you!  Be good to yourself!  Wishing you a fun-filled holiday weekend!

Love Nikki B.

Life is a Dream

Image
One thing I know for sure is that I was born a dreamer.  I rather live with rose-colored glasses than face reality.  I would rather revel in beauty and dreams than the realism of everyday.  It's an escapism from the mundanity of everyday life.  I want life to be full of special, loving moments that create memories of a lifetime, whether with family, friends, or both.  I want to make a child smile, a mother laugh or a brother shed a tear of joy.  


I'm a dreamer.  I live in a world of emotion.  Sensitive.  Sometimes I just want to run away from all that I'm feeling.  But mostly I want to find peace and serenity surrounding me.  I pray that for you all, as well.  Will you join me with your rose-colored glasses, too?

Love Nikki  B.

A Note to my Dad

Image
Dad
Thanks for loving me so much
And being so open and easy to talk to.
Thanks for believing in me when I didn't
Thanks for demanding me to be honest,
you made me a better person.
Thanks for showing me the beauty in nature,
the world will never be the same.
Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement,
making me believe anything is possible.
Thanks for all the adventures we shared,
the many long talks,
the thoughtful gestures,
caring so much.

Dad I love you forever.

To lose or not to lose, that is the question?

Backon my diet 


after trying to do it myself this week! But I gained a pound back so I went to the doctors for a weigh in today! I am going to Dr. Habermehl's office in Newport Beach and I am so glad that I started with her.  By going in every week, it keeps me more honest and I have to show progress week to week.  I have one more month to attempt to get the 10 unwanted poundage off! Then for a great transformation! 

Well I was going to wait to get a new hairstyle but I just had to go next week!  I made an appointment at the hair salon next Tuesday, as incentive or a reward.  If I lose another 1-2 pounds this week, I will have lost half the weight.

Well I am committed to getting up and doing cardio in the am! So Sweet dreams to all! In French they say "Beaux Reves"....

Missing my dad today.  We lost him in May.  He passed away.  I think about him everyday.  I was blessed to have him in my life.
 He was a beautiful man, so sensitive, kind and caring.  He still is in my heart.  

Love Nikki B.
