Being a single mom sometimes finding the time, and especially the funds, to take a much needed getaway doesn’t come easy. In situations like these using your resources is a must. Creating your own peaceful space, an in-house retreat, can be essential to your mental and physical health. Stress can be hard on our bodies over an extended period of time so to offset some of that undue stress use what you have to get what you need.

Nature’s gifts are a great way to go. “April showers bring May flowers.” The sound of the rain can be very relaxing and tranquil while laying in a hot bubble bath or either lounging on the couch with the doors closed, the lights off and some scented candles lit. Once May rolls around that same rain will have helped some beautiful buds sprout into blooming action. Buy yourself a huge bouquet of your favorite flowers to add to your new Zen-therapy!
