Many of us have so many responsibilities in life that we forget to take care of ourselves. And while it’s hard to prioritize something like taking a bath when you have so many other priorities in life, self care is an important aspect of stress management. A massage, soak in the tub or other forms of pampering revitalize you inside and out. And taking time out to treat your body like the temple it is has other benefits:http://stress.about.com/od/lowstresslifestyle/a/selfcare.htm

This weekend I plan on getting a few items to add/start my summer wardrobe. Last week we talked about cute and comfortable dress, this week I think I will look for skirts. I would like to get a few that can be dress up or down so I can wear them to work and play.
Here are some ideas that I found to get me started on my Summer Skirt Search.

What kind of skirts will you be adding to your summer wardrobe?
Earlier in the week my friend and I where g-chating about her move, our jobs, starting a family and balancing the two. She sent me this link and the title literally smacked me in the face, Why Women Still Can’t Have It All.
For almost two years now I have been trying to figure out this work/life balance that so many have talked about. Leaving the hustle and bustle of a downtown Chicago online advertising position for a suburb marketing copywriting position. To cut my commute time down and actually be able to take or pick-up Yus from school. Am I glad I made the transition? Yes! Do I wonder if it was the right choice? Sometimes. Do I miss the stress? Hecky nah.
Today lets work on the Total Body.
Here are some additional videos that can help you out too.
Let us know what exercises you like to incorporate into your total body routine.
School is out, Weather is warm (for some it is HOT), and it is time to have some Fun!!!
