5 Cool things by Dareth Rosaline


Handmade flower
What will you do when you are free from studying or working? Or what will you do to release your stress? If you are yet to think about it, making craft flower is what I’m going to recommend to ensure that your free time is used effectively. You may think that it is just a simple thing, but it’s more than that. You can choose what kind of flower you want to make, then you can design it with any style, any way that you want. To make a craft flower, you need only some equipment that you can find in your house such as scissors, papers, and glue, but it requires your patience and creativity. With what you’ve made, you can use it to decorate your room, house, office, or give it to your friends or your significant other. I guarantee they will be happy and surprised when you give them what you’ve made with your own hands!


Leisurely bath
When your head hurts or you feel like you just can’t think because you have been so busy all day, start running the water in your bath tub and get ready to wash your cares away. It’s like the tension has been building up all day and then you just let it go in the bath. You can decide if you want a warm bathe or a cold shower; sometimes a cold shower can be just what you need after a long, hot day as well. The sounds of the water pouring over your body is almost as relaxing as the feeling you will have. Add to these things the sweet smell of shampoo and body lotion and maybe the dulcet tones of your favourite Khmer crooner playing quietly in your bathroom and you’ve got an elixir that could cure even the most miserable of migraines.


Scented Candle

I know that I am not the only person who feels like they have run a marathon by the end of a hard day of working and studying. But once you are so riled up from the hectic day behind you, how will you ever get to sleep?  If you feel helpless in answering this question, I want to introduce you to the scented candle. First, you just give the light to scented candle then fall on your bed close your eyes and try to breath in the smell from the candle. That pleasurable smell will help you feel comfortable, relaxed, and let your brain eliminate any bad moods that might be lingering in your brain and you are sure to have great dreams and wake up the next morning ready to begin another day of distress.


Karate
As usual, people think that doing karate is only for strong men, but it is a useful activity for anyuone who wants to fit and capable of protectign themselves from a evil enemy. Learning karate will also improve your strength and flexibility, which is good for more than just fighting off malignant ninjas. More than anything, the peace of mind of knowing that you could cruch anyone who tries to mess with you is worth the time in the dojo.


Glow-in-the dark stars

Glow-in-the dark star stickers are one of the coolest things you can use to decorate you room. It may only be a fake star, but stick it to your wall or ceiling and it can give off a light that looks as real as the star’s Pinnochio wished upon. Just turn off your light and look up at your star stickers and you will think you are staring off into space. The coloured and glittering light will make you forget about the clutter of the city, and perhaps the messiness of your room, and you can let your mind go where it please.
