Stress relief doesn’t always come cheap (hello, Bliss spa!), and some of the ways I like to unwind are viewed as socially unacceptable (going apesh*t on an annoying coworker, for instance).
Thank goodness for affordable stress-relieving miracles like Origins Sensory Therapy Peace of Mind ($10) …
It may not replace a trip to the spa (or beating the crap out of my pillow until I foam at the mouth), but it helps to bring my heart rate down when something has me seeing red.
Like aromatherapy, Peace of Mind’s light, non-greasy lotion radiates a soothing peppermint, eucalyptus and basil fragrance when I (or El Hub) massage a few drops into the back of my neck and shoulders, where I hold a lot of my tension.
Relief for tense muscles
Within about five minutes of rubbing it on, a cooling effect kicks in — not intense like Ben Gay — just cool enough to unclench my muscles.
It’s portable, too!
I usually leave the the tiny bottle at home, but sometimes I’ll take it with me in my purse, where I can reach for it when I’m stuck in traffic.

Didn’t make it to the movie, boo
I was just too tired by the time El Hub got home from work, so I guess I’ll have to wait for the weekend to see 500 Days of Summer. If you catch it before then, let me know what you thought (but please no spoilers!).
I hope you’re having a good hump day.
