27 Miracles Countdown to Christmas Day 15

“Examine Your Sole”

“Christmas shopping not only can take a toll on your wallet but your feet as well.  When you get home, put a towel around one foot, grasp both ends of the towel and pull your toes towards you for 15 seconds, then release.  Do this until you feel the soreness slip away.  Then switch feet.” Better Homes and Gardens

Shopping can not only take a toll on your feet, but on your neck, back and legs.  When you are shopping you get so focused on where you are going that you don’t even notice that you have a shoulder bag and you have three or four shopping bags at the mall at a time.  Pace yourself and try to distribute the bags evenly and maybe switch your purse to a cross body or better yet to a small purse that only holds your phone, your money and drivers license.  This will lessen the lad a little bit.  Then go home and take a nice bath and relax!

Merry Christmas!!!

27 Miracles Countdown to Christmas Day 10

“Munch on a Candy”

“Pluck a striped candy cane of the tree and indulge in this classic holiday treat. Peppermint oil in the  cane acts as a calming tonic for stress relief.  Make sure the candy canes you buy contain real peppermint oil.” Better Homes and Gardens

One of the many memories I have as a kid growing up is one of my mom and I going Christmas shopping.   We always took some candy canes with us to eat as we shopped for gifts.  To this day I love candy canes and when  they are not around during the year the regular starlight peppermints give the same calming effect.

Merry Christmas!!! Throwback, yep that is my mom and me!!
