Make Mine A Double Monday

Need to relax a little?  Time to unwind?  No need to spend tons of money on a massage at the spa when you can DIY for pennies or less.   Take a note from the Divas and give this tip a try to achieve TOTAL RELAXATION!

  • Warm up with a hot bath to loosen muscles.
  • Stretch.  Tilt your head from one side to the other, slowly.
  • Breathe deeply before applying any pressure then slowly inhale.
  • After your bath lie on a foam roller to massage your back, quads and calves.  You can purchase one at Target for $30.
  • Try racquetballs or tennis balls for your feet and back.
  • Give yourself a hug.  Reaching over your opposite shoulder gently squeeze your muscles from the top of your arm all the way to the wrist.
  • Take your fingertips and make small circles at the base of your head, moving down to your shoulders.
  • To sleep better, squeeze the back of your neck slightly with one hand then move it up to where the base of the head meets the top of the neck.
