Countdown to V-Day: 5 Days

Sleep.  That's what I'll be doing right after I finish writing this post, but it's also my V-Day tip #2.  While you sleep, your body basically restores itself from your day's events.  If you have been exercising, this restoration process is basically what's going to give you your toned muscles.  It has also been proven that you'll also lose weight if you sleep, regardless of whether or not you do exercise.  Don't believe me?  Take a look at this article here and here.

How many hours of sleep should you get?  The recommended amount is 7-9 hours.  However, some people just can't sleep at night.  Perhaps, it's just too much coffee or energy drinks, but I'd like to share some advice on how I usually get to sleep.
  1. Take a shower before going to bed.
  2. Treat yourself to a minifacial.
  3. Drink some warm milk.
  4. Read a relaxing book.
Since it's Valentine's Day, why not treat yourself to a romance novel?  Personally, I've been loving Red Roses Mean Love by Jacquie D'Alessandro.  Here's a summary from the back cover:

Yellow for friendship.
Pink for passion. But . . .
Red Roses Mean Love.

She dreamed of roses....

Orphaned and abandoned by her fiancé, Hayley Albright is determined to care for her younger siblings even if it means having to give up her own dreams. She doesn't expect to ever find love or get married . . . until one moonlit night when she saves the life of a mysterious stranger.

. . . And he wants only to make her dreams come true....

Lord Stephen Barrett woke up gazing at the face of an angel. He was alive. And safe, for now, from the killer stalking his every move. Allowing Hayley to believe he is just a tutor of modest means, Stephen stays on for reasons of his own, never anticipating the passions Hayley would stir in his cold, wary heart. Her innocence is pure seduction. Her touch is sweet temptation. And suddenly the man who has everything is willing to risk it all--for a woman who has nothing to give . . . but all her heart. . . .

In the beginning, it won't look like it'll be a very interesting book, but trust me: you'll be laughing and cheering for each character in the book in no time.  Give it a chance!
