Blog Giveaway: Win an Amethyst Rising Home Spa Club Membership!

I'm on a mission to do my part to inspire people to take their health and well-being seriously and to get the most out of life. One way to do this is to be proactive about SELF-CARE.  We're so busy taking care of and loving others that we often forget to lavish the same care and love on ourselves.

Self-care doesn't have to mean exhausting the family budget during a shopping spree or getting over-priced treatments from that trendy spa across town.  There are many inexpensive, simple ways to incorporate self-care into your busy day: take five minutes to enjoy a hot cup of tea, schedule a meditation break in the middle of the day or indulge in a long, nurturing bath at the end of the day--just to name a few.

In this giveaway, I want to focus on one of my favorite ways to implement self-care: RELAXATION!  Enter my contest to win the perfect chill-out solution: An Amethyst Rising Three Month Home Spa Club Subscription (valued at $97)!  Learn more about the Home Spa Club here.

The contest runs from today, February 6 - midnight February 20.  One lucky winner's name will be drawn from the pool of submissions on February 25th.  The winner's three month Home Spa Club subscription will start in March.  Each month, in March, April and May, the winner will receive one or two products designed to help them relax and add a little positive mojo to their days (prize includes free priority shipping each month).

To enter the contest, simply do one or more of the following:

1. Leave a comment to this post telling me about your favorite relaxation technique/ritual
2. Leave a comment to this post telling me about a product you'd like to try on my website

  3. My favorite relaxation technique is cuddling up with a blanket, a great book, and a good drink (hot tea, lemonade). My ultimate favorite is a massage, but they are way too expensive.

  14. My relaxation time is in the evening. My daughter goes to sleep at 7 (and is the best sleeper ever) and I have all kinds of time with my husband at night. After that time, I take my shower at night when I won't be bothered by anyone or the hectic nature of the morning. I could take a 20 minute shower if I wanted (which I do occasionally) and I'd have no one bother me!

  20. If I really need to de-stress, I'll find a good book, its the best way to forget troubles ASAP. For more physical relaxing, its a really hot bath for me. I run it hot enough that I turn pink, and then have to add cold when I start to feel dizzy. Terrible waste of hot water, but really good when I'm feeling a bit ill, cold, or tired.

  23. I like to spend time in nature to relax. The sounds of the birds and the wind blowing through the trees relaxes me.

    At home I like to soak in a hot tub with a little classical music.
