DIY: Soothing Bath Salts

Bath Salts

Relaxing is hard to do when you’re overwhelmed with the debt right at your fingertips. You feel guilty when you buy that extra latte that you didn’t budget for or you don’t feel like you can rest because you feel massive debt guilt every time you take a day. I get it. I’ve been there. Resting is hard to do when you have massive debt on your shoulders, but it’s a necessary part of life.

If you don’t take care of your body, you’ll end up with serious chronic conditions, trust me. I know all about the effects stress has on your body. But, heed my warning. You need to relax every once in awhile. It’ll do your body, mind, and family a whole lotta good when you’re not cranky and stressed out all the time.
