Shopping for a New Baby

In a few, short months, my sweet spouse and I will welcome a beautiful baby into our home. If your family will be expanding soon, consider purchasing some baby essentials sooner rather than later. For instance, you should shop early for a car seat, crib, high chair, baby monitor, and changing table. You might also wish to shop for a stylish tote to put bottles, diapers, and other items in when you leave home with your baby. Obviously, you’ll want to buy cute, comfortable outfits for your little one to wear. On this blog, I hope you will discover ingenious tips to help you shop for your unborn baby. Enjoy!

Pain Got You Down? Find Relief With A Bit Of Heat

Shopping Blog

If you lead an active lifestyle, you know how important it is to keep pain away. Unfortunately, pain and injuries often accompany active lifestyles. In addition to visits to a chiropractor, and using over-the-counter pain medications, there some other simple steps you can take to help alleviate the pain, and get you back in the action.

Take A Leisurely Soak In The Tub

Warm bath water can go a long way to alleviating the pain of sore muscles. Adding some Epsom salts and essential oils to the water will turn your bath into a relaxing pain treatment for your back and other painful body parts.

Run a bath and get the water as warm as you can stand it. Don't get it too hot though.  Add about ¼ cup Epsom salts, and about 15–20 drops of either eucalyptus oil or sage oil to the water. Soak for about 30 minutes. The Epsom salts and essential oils will relax your muscles and dull the pain. You can repeat these relaxing baths several times a day.

Reach For Moist Heat

If you just can't move well enough to climb into a hot bath, try relaxing with some moist heat. There are a couple of ways to moist heat to your affected body parts.

Hot Towels

If you don't have access to a heating pad, you can reach for a few towels. All you'll need to do is soak your towel in some warm water and wring it out very well. Place the warm towel on the area of your body that is in pain. Leave the towel in place for about 15 minutes. Repeat as often as necessary.

Microwave Heating Pads

A heating pad is one of the best ways to apply heat to your body. Heating pads work especially well on areas like necks, backs and shoulders. Microwaveable heating pads are quick and easy to use. Best of all, you don't need to be near a power outlet to use them. This means you can curl up anywhere and get the benefits of heat. All you'll need to do is place the heating pad in the microwave and heat it up for about 5–7 minutes. You can reheat your pads whenever you need them.

There is nothing worse than being in pain, especially if it's keeping you from enjoying life. Warm baths and microwaveable heating pads can help you recover from your pain so you can get back to doing the things you want to do.
