2. Use tennis balls for a DIY massage.

Over time, kinks in muscles can settle in, and the soreness that comes with it can be a literal pain in the neck. It is no wonder that when you are hurt, your whole mood can spiral downward. There may be the answer right inside your sports utility closet. A tennis ball is the perfect handheld size to work out those trouble spots and get you to feeling better.

To do this do-it-yourself massage trick, place the ball in the target locations on your back and prop your head with a pillow. Roll the balls over the painful areas, and you will begin to feel some relief. Continue for a few minutes until you start to sense a bit better. Score one for the athletes! Besides, instead of forking over a bunch of cash at a masseuse, you can relax in your home and still get a massage. Not only will you save money, but you can use the tennis balls for a fun game later. Tennis is great exercise!

1. Eggs are not just for breakfast.

You can enjoy an at-home spa day any time of the morning, afternoon, evening, or night. Whenever you do, get the eggs ready. No, they are not just for eating, either. You can use the ever necessary egg for more than the most important meal of the day. Egg whites are great for treating oily skin or creating a toner. Mix the yolks with some olive oil, and you have a deep conditioning hair treatment that can be whipped up in no time. This treatment only takes 20 minutes to work its charms, perfect for slipping in the bath.

What makes eggs a superfood for your hair? Egg yolk is rich in vitamins, which can help your hair become more resistant to damage. The excellent combination of vitamins A and E, biotin, and folate provides unique chemistry in making your tresses feel healthier and stronger. Researchers have also linked eggs as an essential part of stimulating healthy hair growth.
