Don your birthday suit. Shower, soak in various hot tub styles, dip in a cool pool & steam.
Don comfy cotton clothes. Head to the co-ed area to relax or sleep on chairs & a heated floor & in powerfully therapeutic rooms - several heated, one frosty. Watch TV or the fish tank. Use free wi-fi. Eat healthy Asian food. Workout. Play arcades.
Repeat all this over & over for up to 24 hours for just $35, sometimes less. Pay extra for massage & other treatments. Go alone or with friends/fam of all ages. Open 24/7.
I repeat: ahhhhh.
P.S. I like it so much I’m there doubly in my birthday suit today - cause it’s my birthday.
Does this make you yaaaaawn? Essential oil spray & incense in sleepytime scents. Chamomile tea. Coconut oil for scalp/body massage. Hot water bottle for the tummy. Eye shade. Melatonin for some extra relaxation. Ocean sounds (not pictured). Ah - natural ZZZs. [PHOTO: me (low-quality camera, sorry)]
The “Housing as a Human Right” tent city at 7th & R Streets, NW DC is still going strong since this Saturday & will keep going as long as volunteers keep pitching in presence, skill-shares, food, security, etc. Contact ONE DC to get involved or just show up! Updates on Twitter and the blog.
What’s a holistic dentist? This video & this article explain the basics. For those of you in the DC area, I really recommend National Integrated Health Associates for your holistic dentistry (& many other) needs. P.S. Don’t forget tongue scraping.
"May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love. It is there for each and every one of us."
"The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around…. Throughout history, “tender loving care” has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing."
This is the symbol of GRATITUDE. Gratitude is an unbelievably powerful force. What are some things you’re grateful for right this second? (Among other things, I’m grateful for many great & surprising connections with people lately & missing being hit by a car by inches last night!) Bask in gratitude & see what happens.
