“In all of living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.”~Gordon B. Hinckley

Enjoy life! The only moment that you are guaranteed is the one that you are presently living. Fun is not a trivial distraction. It adds the spark to life, propels you through tough times, and triggers your happy radar. In this section, Dr. Bernadette and her contributors share some items and experiences that bring enjoyment to their lives. Go ahead, have fun, you won’t regret it!

My Daily Professional Facial

The Clarisonic facial cleansing system gives an entirely new meaning to washing your face. Upgrade beyond the ordinary washcloth to alleviate the impurities from the face. The Clarisonic opens the pores to allow your skincare regimen to better penetrate the skin resulting in an improved appearance. I don’t travel away from home without my Clarisonic Mia 2. It has significantly reduced dry areas on my skin!

Write It Away

Keep your journal close by. Having a safe place to express and share your intimate thoughts, can reduce stress, provide healing, and allow reflection. It is a great way to start, end, or even take a break from the day. Do not fret over wording or if sounds correct; instead, just write from the soul. It does not matter whether it is one word, one sentence, one paragraph, or one page it is your personal journey.

Breathe in the calming aromas of Archipelago Candles. I incorporate these candles in my 15 minute daily personal retreats. My favorite fragrance is the sweet essence of currant. I find turning off the lights, quieting the house, and lighting an Archipelago Candle relaxes the mind and spirit while helping to release the stress of the day. A great escape to regain control of the moment!
