WIN A SPA PRIZE PACK!

You all know that this week I am saying “OHM” more then ever to keep me sane!

Well, Stonyfield Farm is hosting a contest, in which one lucky winner will receive an all-expense trip to Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Lenox, Massachusetts. Sign me up! I so need this right now!

This contest is open to all bloggers.  To enter, you can do one of three things!

  • Share a brief story about why you need to relax and say “Ohm.”
  • Share a recipe you create or tip using Oikos yogurt – it can be as simple as a holiday dip or dessert or breakfast idea.
  • Post a photo of you doing yoga in a toga (Oikos is Greek yogurt after all!).

All entries (your post is your entry) must include a link to the Oikos Facebook fan page and be emailed to oikos@360publicrelations.com by November 30, 2009.

I am still working on mine but should have it done by November 30th for sure!

Jess said...

I like to relax with a glass of wine and friends.

Beth S. said...

I'm in grad school so I feel like there's little time to relax. But when I do I love tea and running (not at the same time though.)

Jen said...

I knit. Knitting soothes me. It gets me into this relaxing mode and I can knit my troubles away.

Also, my cat does wonders. He comes up and purrs. I start to pet him and stress feels better.

KK @ Running Through Life said...

Oh I need to relax and say “Ohm.”

I try to get in a workout/run, take a warm bath, and read a good book.

Snuggling in bed with a good book after a long day is super relaxing!

I meditate and do daily yoga in the morning.

When trying to relax, I take long drives at night whilelistening to some of my favorite music.

marathonsnmartinis said...

Running helps me relax. When I can't do that, petting my kitties is a close second. They are so sweet and loving - they make me forget all the stress I have!

Melody said...

In order to relax, I like to sit in a comfy chair, light some candles, play relaxing music, drink a glass of wine, read one of my favorite books (like The Lord of the Rings trilogy), and soak my feet in bath salts (all at the same time, naturally!) :-)

Mmmm...speaking of relaxing...

Allison said...

I love taking a warm bubble bath! I usually read a book or magazine while soaking...so relaxing!

Carrie said...

I love to roll in the grass with my pups. I have two of them, and I spread out a big blanket in the back yard, and we soak up the sun. Sometimes I talk to them about what is stressing me out while I hand out tummy rubs and sliced apples(a big favorite)!

Always a lovely and relaxing time!

Bekah said...

fave way to relax= on the couch with a blanket and tivo. I usually always fall asleep to Tyler Florence or Michael Chiarello's lovely voice on Food Network. Bobby Flay? He might keep me awake. ;) ;)

Love Oikos!

Anonymous said...

I love to light some candles and take a nice, long bubble bath. Nothing in the world is as relaxing and it just helps melt the stress away:)
