The last few weeks have been nothing but a rat race for me. Honestly, I hate being that busy. I like to use my afternoons for me and my family. I grab a cup of coffee, or sometimes a Starbucks KCup Hot Cocoa, a warm fuzzy blanket and my favorite book and just veg out.
For me, unwinding is my absolute favorite part of the day. It helps me to shrug off anything bad that took place during my day (like today when I saw a puppy get hit by a car and they kept on driving), and unwinding always helps me unplug and refocus my thoughts.
Now, with the new Starbucks Hot Cocoa KCups, unwinding is even easier — with a simple push of a button. I get to choose between salted caramel (which is my personal favorite) or the classic hot cocoa flavor. They are both made with real cocoa and non fat milk, making each sip more decadent and delicious than the last.
3 Ways You Can Unwind
Finding the time to unwind is simply just making time for it in the afternoon. Here are 3 ways that I make sure this happens.
#1 Set a Scheduled Time to Quit and Then Do It
For those of us that work from home, we carry our work loads long into the night. Not me. Not anymore. This year, I am changing that and making myself create regular work hours. This will allow me plenty of time in the evening to not think about work and to be able to sit and relax.
While I relax, I am going to indulge in a Starbucks KCup Hot Cocoa.
Each cup is made with real cocoa and non-fat milk for rich, creamy, chocolaty taste, time after time — and that rick cream taste will make you want to quit working at a certain time so you can indulge.
#2 Take a Warm Bath Infused with Lavendar Essential Oils
Nothing, and I mean nothing, helps me unwind more than filling my bathtub full of hot water, and then adding a few drops of lavendar essential oils.
Then I sink in and close my eyes and allow my mind to clear of all the deeds accomplished for the day.
Sometimes, I brink my coffee or hot cocoa with me in the bathroom and indulge just a bit more with candles, soft spa music and my warm chocolatey beverage.
A warm bath, soothing music, candles, and a cup of Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa is just what the doctor ordered for me on some days.
#3 A Good Book and a Blanket Make Everything Better
When I get in warm fuzzy blankets in the mail, I am definitely going to give them a test run. I pour myself a Starbucks KCup and settle in for some much needed reading.
For some, reading is a chore, but for me, nothing calms my soul like digging into a good book, especially a good book I cannot put down.
Being able to drink a hot chocolatey and creamy beverage while doing so makes it even better!
Book+hot cocoa + blanket = pure heaven.
