Laura Lee, 53, with invisible wounds and scars. I've learned to embrace PTSD and depression because if I don't own them, they'll own me.  I don't want to simply survive, but to thrive.  I hope you'll join me on my journey.  It's sure to be a bumpy road.

Ever since that day back in 2001 I’ve searched for ways to get healthy.  Stay  healthy.  Medication.  Exercise.  Breathing exercises.  Meditation.  Prayer.  Self-care activities….which led me to create Color Joy and the coloring book membership.  Sometimes we need more. Sometimes I need more.  And, that’s ok.  Because it’s led me to develop Wellness Through Expressive Arts – a new faith based membership that allows you to go on a personal journey of growth, well-being, and healing through active art making and prayer.  We’ll be using things like acrylic paints. chalk pastels, and modeling clay.

There are many ways to modulate your frustrations.  Napping is one of them.  In one study, nappers who took a 60-minute nap were less impulsive.   I’m a napper.  Like an everyday napper.  Don’t take away my naps.  Like really.  Don’t do it.

Then one day, my therapist not only suggested that I color, but encouraged it – even during our sessions.  And, I discovered that I could color for 15 minutes or for 60 minutes and keep myself distracted from my symptoms long enough to let them melt away.  And, at the same time, I was more focused.

A friend recently had a summer cold.  I’m not sure what’s worse – getting a cold in the dead of winter or on a bright sunshiney day.  I created these sinus steamers for her.  They work like a charm and they’re oh-so-easy to make!

I don’t know about you, but I take more baths in the winter than I do in the summertime, but when I do take a summer bath, I want it to count.  Know what I mean?

The DIY recipe for these cashmere bath bombs is made with cashmere fragrance oil and REAL cashmere from Bramble Berry.

For those who want the nourishing effects of butters and oils without the fizz of a bath bomb, bath melts or solid bath oils are perfect.  They’re easier to make, too, because they aren’t as finicky as bath bombs.  These bath melts are made with geranium essential oil.  You can substitute an essential oil of your choice.   If you choose to use fragrance oil (FO) instead, be sure to check the recommended usage amount because it will be different.
