Lots of things cause us stress and stress is not a friend...just a real meany who stands in the way of our getting the most joy out of life. When I was a young (er) mom and I worried too damned much, an older woman in my garden club told me to do these things every day: Cream your skin, face and neck, with the best moisturizer you can afford. When you are alone for even a short time, pick up a book and immerse yourself in someone else's world. And, grab your kids' coloring books and color your world happy.

I followed her advise and now as a writer of fiction and much more recently, a designer of coloring books for grownups, I have hit the target. Oh, and I cream my skin three times a day with the coconut oil that I also cook with for good health. Buy the oil that is the least messed with. Unprocessed I think it says on the jar. Hey you can even dip a spoon in just like you do with p-nut butter and go healthy. Love belonging, keep in touch. Cynthia

Hi and welcome to the group! These are great tips. I miss my kids being little...I always was coloring right with them. Oh and reading a good book does help, now I just need to try the coconut oil you suggested.
