In preparation for the busy seasons of back to school, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, wouldn’t it be nice to stock up on all the little treats that allow us to cope with the stresses of those times? Providing ourselves with moments of relaxation and improving our wellbeing can be very enjoyable when we know that we have already planned for them. Whether you hope to go to a countryside spa or just find an hour, here and there, to pamper yourself, let’s get through the next few months as stress-free as possible.
The Christmas in July team would like to present their items that will help our Relaxation and Wellbeing plans.

Who doesn’t love to relax after a long day at work, school,etc? Not only is it nice to slow down and relax, but it has many health benefits as well. Relaxing helps slow heart rate, maintains normal blood sugar levels, reducing chronic pain and muscle tension and so much more.
There are so many ways to relax. Some include yoga, meditation, music, arts, crafts and so much more.
Here are my fish buttons…
Judy from JAMsCraftCloset said here in Florida, many people like to visit the beach to relax. Walking on the beach, listening to the waves, watching the birds fly in and out, collecting shells and sea glass, and watching the crabs come in and out of their hole are just a few of the relaxing things to do on the beach. A beach is a great place to just go to, sit, and think in such a peaceful atmosphere. I’ll bet many problems are being solved on the beach…
Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio states I’m sensing a nature theme here. My number one way to relax is to go for a long hike or walk. Getting my heart racing, strengthening my muscles, breathing in fresh air and letting my thoughts wander away from the fast-paced world and end up in a calm place where I can appreciate all the planet has to offer.
I have to offer large original paintings of earth and sky tones, inspired by nature. This painting is an affirmation of life and my vision of connecting with the world of plants and animals. I gave it the title “Forest Spirit” and it reminds me of old beliefs and rituals. People have always believed that nature has the power to heal and science now confirms this knowledge. This painting creates an atmosphere of peace and relaxation. Very well suited to the interior in the Zen style.
In my shop, there are also large pastel paintings that bring nature. I also paint for orders. Just let me know.
Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital said many people, myself included, love paper crafting – scrapbooking, card making, decoupage. When I have that down time to make something with paper, it really helps me let go of the stress and be just happy.
Cerena from CerenaLevene states many folks enjoy camping among a natural setting to relax. For me a good set of cozy pajamas is quite enough ~ a bib would come in handy too for sad movie tears! Or for a catch all and mouth wipe after pizza.
Caroline from SoyCandlesbyCaroline says relaxation is very important for our overall mental awareness and well-being. I have been using candles as a method for relaxation over the years and recently started learning about the benefits of essential oils. Incorporating essential oils like 100% Pure Lemongrass Essential Oil has been shown to drive away anxious thoughts and promote positivity!
Marta from GottliebTextiles said there is nothing more relaxing than a nice afternoon nap. Your sofa should be not only cozy but also stylish. Here is a nice set of two cushion covers to brighten up your relax zone.
Cindy from Cynhumphrey states many people like to read to relax! Here’s a perfect metal bookmark designed just for that purpose! Created with a soft pink bead and a floral focal point hinting of a nice summer day, it doesn’t get much more relaxing than this!
