January Must-Haves!

2008 has finally arrived so let's all start off the new year on the right foot. It's easy to feel a little post-holiday depression so be sure to check out my January must-haves to help keep you energized and your spirits high.

  • Relax and help ward off sickness by getting a eucalyptus massage.
  • Plan a ski trip with your friends. Not only will you have a chance to be active and outdoors, but it will give you something to look forward to.
  • Join a gym and start working out with a personal trainer to help you make goals for a better you in 2008.
  • If you suffer from seasonal affective disorder, buy yourself a sun lamp to ensure you get the appropriate amount of bright light, which can help with depression.
  • Take painting or drawing class at your local community center or college to help wake up your creative side.

I suffer from depression every year, it hits me after the holidays are over. Three days ago I woke up feeling very sad and just started crying. Hubby and kids were out of the house already. I sat in bed for 5 hours crying. Finally I had enough and knew I had to take a positive step, no matter how small. So I got up, opened the curtains to let in the sun (I live in Florida), did some cleaning, took a walk, and cooked a fabulous (healthy) meal and felt better. Personally, if I were to have a massage or spent money on myself, I would've felt guilty and that much more depressed. I think the key is healthy eating and alot will fall into place after that. If you treat your body with respect, it's always a good thing. Just my opinion. xo, rockstarwife (yes-I really am!)

A sun lamp sounds like high energy bills to me... I suggest getting a facial. Mine included neck and shoulder massage and a foot and hand massage. It brightened my day!Ski trip planned- check.Gym- check.I better break out those paints!

I like the idea of a sun lamp but it doesn't really appear to be very "decor" ready...
