“How are things with you?” asks my friend.
“BUSY!” I say.
That’s pretty much how most of my conversations with friends start (though I would imagine that it sounds familiar to you too.) Between work, family and life in general, it seems my to-do list is never blank. Honestly, there are items on there that get transferred from old list to new list for months on end. Hall closet, I swear I will get to you one of these days. I see your teetering piles, I do…
But it’s important to try and steal some time for yourself when you can, to do things that are not even close to being on a to-do list. These are the things that help you to unwind and recharge, both of which are equally important to help you to tackle anything that comes your way.
As much as I love elaborate indulgences (like a spa day) it’s the little rewards that add up and keep me consistently happy and feeling good. One of my favorite ways to treat myself is to take a bath. But I’m not talking a “quick splash to get ready for the next day” sort of bath. I’m talking “apply a mask, load up the bubbles and grab an ice cream bar” sort of bath.
That’s right, I said ice cream! I’m not sure what it is, but eating something sweet in the tub makes me feel like I don’t have a care in the world. It takes relaxing to a whole new level.
Best of all, my family now knows if I head into the bathroom with an ice cream bar that they should leave me alone. No knocking, whatever it is can totally wait, she needs a minute…
My ice cream bar of choice is Skinny Cow Double Caramel Swirl. It has a rich chocolate coating over low fat caramel ice cream and caramel swirls. Something about the crunch of biting into a chocolate shell, it’s definitely my favorite ice cream accessory. The creamy caramel ice cream and the swirls are a great counterpart too. This is a majorly delicious treat.
Of course, if ice cream isn’t your thing, Skinny Cow has other equally yummy options. Prefer to indulge with candy? The Divine Filled Chocolates are squares filled with silky caramel. Or maybe coffee is what floats your boat? Newest to the Skinny Cow family is their Iced Coffee in three flavors: Vanilla Latte, Mocha Latte and Creamy Cappuccino. I declare all to be tub-worthy.
So go ahead and indulge. It’s good for you. And equally good for those around you!
