I have a room that has windows on the north and west walls and I have blinds on them. I also have a floor lamp in a 1920s style and have a pink bulb that casts a mellow glow in the room. I have a stereo that plays four CDs, so there is continuous music without listening to the same songs again and again. I use hot stones and soothing eye patches, as well as a soothing foot cream that is put on. The feet are then covered with warm footies, all at no extra charge.
