Stress Reducing Heating Pad, and Paring Down Posting Frequency


Well, it’s Friday! And I didn’t plan a post for today, mostly due to time constraint. So, today’s post gives me the perfect opportunity to announce my less frequent blog posting plans. Even after factoring in the time saving pre-scheduled posts I mentioned earlier this week, I still need to make more time for me (and my boyfriend and little doggies) during the week.

Going forward I plan to post a minimum of 3 times a week.

I have to admit that for some odd reason I am scared of posting less frequently. If it’s at all possible, I’ve become attached to my blogging schedule, the comfort of daily accomplishment, and the joy of exploration. I’m not sure what exactly I’m scared of, and I’m not sure what I’ll lose or miss. But I do know what I’ll gain, and what I could plan to do with some of that extra time (like make more videos, or go on more adventures).

And since my 3-times-a-week posting plan does not start until Monday, I decided to include an easy stress reducing tip. Stress is linked with vitiligo, which means minimizing stress is not just generally healthy : )

To reduce stress, I use a microwave heat pad for my body’s most stressed and sore spots! Here are some examples. There are hundreds, they are widely available, and they are relatively inexpensive. I use mine for my neck and shoulder muscles 3 times a day: every morning, when I get home from work, and before bed. Your most vulnerable spots may be completely different than mine, but heat therapy is sure to feel great and help easy any pain or tension. If you have tension like me, I hope this helps!
