The Good Stuff

Here are my recommendations for people, places, items and ideas to help along the journey.

Audible.com

I love listening to books, and Audible lets you carry a whole library right on your personal devices.  Need a mental boost, inspiration, or a pleasant diversion while you commute to work, clean house, on a long flight, or sitting in your favorite comfy chair?  Stories galore are right at your fingertips, just waiting for you to plug in your headset and click.

Calm.com

This app has a wide array of nature sounds, guided mindfulness and meditation programs, timed breathing exercises, and a selection of relaxing stories to promote sleep.  My favorite is the sound of Rain on Leaves, perfect for drifting off.

Massages

Are you sensing a theme here?  It’s all about stress reduction, centering and self-care.  I highly recommend regular massages, at least once a month.  Full body Swedish deep tissue, the limb manipulations of Thai massage, and reflexology foot massages are my favorites for soothing tired muscles and stimulating the pressure points for internal organs.
