Welcome to the next installment of “What’s Making Me Happy,” a monthly series about the things that are brightening my life! And boy, does it need brightening this month. I need pepping up every time I turn on the news or look at social media.
I couldn’t live without my… Himalayan Salt Lamp
I recently moved this lamp from the living room to the bedroom. In the living room, I’d thought I felt a difference in my levels of calmness and focus, but I wasn’t sure.

I highly recommend these lamps for– well, everyone, but especially those who have issues with sleeping, anxiety, depression, or a lowered immune system.

He never wrote me back, which was unusual, but we were both very busy, so I didn’t press him. On Christmas morning, the first package I opened from my husband was the salt lamp! He’d bought it before I’d even heard of them and was afraid to write me back in case he gave the surprise away.

I’ve also tried a charcoal face mask in a sample package, and it made my skin feel amazing. Treat yo’self! [Read more…]
