OXIDATIVE STRESS -

Inspiration! #takethatms




My favorite meditation app:  Calm (click here to download). Love this tool to help manage the stress of life each day. Just 10 minutes a day. Sometimes mediation takes place in the bath tub where it's quiet and peaceful. And safe from interruptions. 
 

Afterwards I often enjoy a nice cup of mellow, calming tea.  My nerves are always a bit frazzled with MS and the tea is greatly appreciated. 

 

Homemade bath salts take the event to a whole new level... 
 
Just ten minutes a day can change your life. 

What's your favorite way to take the edge off?
