Favorite Way To Take Care Of Myself-#Band Back Together

What is your favorite ways to take care of yourself?

I am not sure how many of you read this post where I talk about volunteering for The Band Back Together project.  I am still helping them out and they have started a new thing where on Friday’s that post a question for people to answer and since I am always trying to find things other than book reviews to write about I am going to start writing about them.

Today I am going to answer the question that was asked in this post of theirs: What is your favorite ways to take care of yourself?

  • I have found that lately my favorite way to take care of myself is once I leave work I don’t turn on a computer and I try not to use my phone.  I find that if I am always connected to social media I tend to get burnt out super quick.  When I am home from work I don’t turn on a computer and I just relax so that maybe I will be able to sleep without taking any medication.
  • Another way I like to take care of myself is to read books and as I am sure you can tell I have no shortage of books to read right now.
  • I also take the time to laugh.  My grandma and I are always laughing about something.  Laughter can brighten any day and make a bad day better.  I have learned to not take the world so seriously and laughing helps me do that.
  • I also get my nails done ever 3 weeks.  Which is a great way for me to relax and change things up.  I have started to post what my nails look like after I get them done so if you are interested you can check out those post right here!

What do you do to take care of yourself?

Dead Light by Mike Pace

DeadLight_900

Review

I am sure as most of you know by know that I love to read and I read all kinds of  books and I have to say that this was one of strangest books I have ever read.  It was so different that I actually couldn’t put it down because I had to know how it was going to end and what was going to happen through out the whole book.  I liked the author’s writing but I had a really hard time getting into it and sticking to it.  It did keep me wondering what was going to happen and I think I am going to check out more books by him when I get a free second to read.

About The Book

 

…a matter of light and death…

In the sleepy college town of Cumberton, MD, an old cemetery must be moved to make room for a new dormitory, and an ungodly Light, buried for centuries, escapes. A rash of gruesome student suicides rocks the town. Sheriff Estin Booker teams up with former Baltimore homicide detective Anna Tucci to investigate the deaths. What neither expects is to have all roads point to a 2000-year-old legend which, if true, could lead to the destruction of mankind.

The most frightening account of the power of evil breeching our world since The Exorcist, DEAD LIGHT will teach you the most improbable lesson you will ever learn:

FEAR THE LIGHT!

Sweet Sanctuary by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Sweet-Sanctuary-e1361234288381

Review

I really enjoyed everything about this book. I fell in love with the characters from the start. The author did a great job of making me feel like I was there with the characters and also did a great job of making me understand the way the characters were feeling. I can’t say that I loved the ending because I wish it would have been wrapped up but it left things hanging. I do see why it ended the way it did though.

About The Book

Lydia Eldredge longs to provide sanctuary for her young son, Nicky. But a constant threat comes from Nicky’s drug-addicted father, who wants the boy and seems willing to do whatever it takes to get him.

Dr. Micah Hatcher faithfully serves the immigrant population of Queens, New York. But under cover of darkness, he has a secret mission that challenges everything he thought he wanted out of life.

When Lydia and Micah’s paths cross, they are suddenly wrapped up in each other’s callings. Together, they seek a refuge of safety-for Nicky, for themselves, and for the needy people God puts into their lives. Amid turmoil and discord, can hope and love prevail?
