Tuesday’s Chill Pill: Cheap Spa Treat for Your Desk

Wish you had the time for a quick trip to the spa to pamper yourself?

Me too! Too bad that’s not likely to happen again until my youngest hits the first grade…five years from now.

Luckily you don’t have to go anywhere to treat yourself to a great spa pick-me-up: an ice cold glass of cucumber water. If you’re in the need for a little rejuvenation, slice a cucumber, grab a pitcher, fill it with ice and water, and drop in the cucumber slices. Sip it all day long at your desk. If you can, close the door and put an ice-cold cucumber slice on each eye for five minutes (throw those in the trash when you’re done).

If you don’t like cucumbers, make flavored water with lemons or oranges instead.
