SPT


what do you turn to when you need a quick "pick me up?"

hmmm it seems everyone is in one of these moods...the quick pick me ups are more like one long need during the day these days.
Still have sick ones home, and I am a little tired. It felt last night that as soon as I got one settled back in, and I would lay down, there was another need.

So here we go SPT for this week.

Well there is one thing I do far too often, and I am trying to do it in moderation....
eating chocolate....

and these are the things I could do endlessly....and it would not matter how much I did them,
it would not hurt anything and would do some good
clean/organize something- I always feel good after a quick pick up, or something scrubbed
drink some water...I have started keeping a bottle in the fridge for everyone with their intials on it. It has helped me. I have to have it nice and cold.
put some peppermint lotion on-love the mint

and then there is always this......
take pictures

I need to be better about drinking water- I go in weekly spurts and know my energy is better when I hydrate. The picture thing is great- I didn't even think of that!

I am in LOVE with both the Method grapefruit cleaner and the peppermint lotion...glad to know someone else who loves these "very good things."

These are all excellent pick me up options. I drink water all day long and haven't considered it a pick me up type of thing, but I'm sure it is.

Cleaning and organizing are always a pick me ups, they're both satisfying and there's some aromatherapy going on with those as well.

I wish that cleaning was a good pick me up. Unfortunately, cleaning is what puts me a in bad mood in the first place.

I totally agree about the water and the chocolate (hey, that could be a movie title!)

I use the Method cleaners too--love the Pink Grapefruit--definintely perky.

Cleaning and organizing is a great pick me up, when I'm done I feel like I actually accomplished something. Getting started though...

What great p/u's! I need to work on that cleaning thing as a p/u!

Method makes even cleaning fun!! i try to stay away from the chocolate, but lately the Girl Scout thin mints have been calling my name...

and i totally have to have my water ice cold!

Barb said...

I'm with ya on all of these! (I also try not to turn to the chocolate TOO often)
I skimmed down and found peppermint showing up twice on this current page, so I think that must be a real winner for you!

I completely agree with cleaning/organizing/scrubbing something. It does wonders. Lotion too! Great post.

I LOVE your header!

Very fun - Water is a great one, I so need to drink more of it! Smells for sure are a great pick me up - I love lotions - especially from bath & body works, they have great scents! thanks for sharing!

I love peppermint too. A clean house is a great pick me up.. it's just the cleaning part that I have a hard time starting!

Sadly, I turn to chocolate for a pick-me-up far too often. I need to remember that cleaning and organizing work well, too. I tend to avoid them, but when I do it, I feel so much better! Taking photos, that is a great one.
