Relax, now that's a {NewNew} Concept!

I don't know about you all, but I've had one heck of a hectic September already!  New York City is never a slow place, but there just seems to be something about the first couple of weeks of September that puts people in high gear.   Whatever the reason, the City is buzzing, schedules are overflowing, tasks are being juggled, I for one could use some relaxation.

Time to relax? Yeah right! Ha!  I hear ya!  But, if you think about it as finding time to relax my bet is you never will.  Well at least I never do.   So how can you (and I) work a little relaxation into the day?   Let's see what {NewNew} ideas we can come up with...
Start your day at the spa. 
Spa Bar $7
Nordea Soaperie
Or at least turn your 5 minute shower into a spa-like experience with an amazing soap.  Nordea Soaperie's  Spa Bar is made using salt, coconut oil and shea butter so it has a thick, creamy, lotion-like lather.  Salts have been known to help w/circulation, detoxify, and help retain moisture in the skin.
Head for the woods before things get wild.  
Goat Milk and Honey Lotion $7.50
Before you pack your lunch, grab your BlackBerry head out into the wild, drench yourself in the relaxing woody scent of Mohogany Spice Lotion from PureSpa2.  It is packed with goat’s milk, honey and shea butter.  The Mahogany Spice scent is a deep, rich woody scent with notes of Italian bergamot, apple wood and cardamom. 
Get back to nature. 
Ginny Series Living Jewelry $45
With MCFlashpants Living Jewelry it is not as hard as it sounds.  Plants are not only beautiful, research has shown that they reduce stress in work environments! Each of the plants used in these amazing pieces is right out of the garden.  And don't worry -- they are easy to care for
Sneak in some instant refreshment. 
Double Mint Lip Balm $3
Give yourself and your lips some pampering anytime of the day with Avelet'17s all natural Double Mint Lip Balm. 
Play with your dog (or your cat).
Nothing relaxes you more that a few minutes walking your furry pal or watching your cat go crazy with their favorite catnip mouse.  
Dog Jacket $49

Catnip Mice $5

Scrappy the catnip mouse is filled with super powerful, organic catnip.  A portion from the sale of each mouse is donated to a local New York animal shelter.
And if all else fails, there is always Craque!
Craque Candy $4 - $60
Based on a traditional southern treat Craque is a delicious and irresistible candy consists of Rice Chex covered in chocolate, peanut butter and powdered sugar. 

See, it's not so hard to find some relaxation after all is it.   Ahhhhhh, I feel much better already.
