How often do you stop to smell the roses, or the coffee? One way to practice self-care is to fill your life with scents, sounds and scenes that make you say "Ah!". Brighten your living space with fresh flowers; play music that you love and allow your body to move to the sound; sing in the shower; use the good dishes everyday. Invest in soap that smells good. Wear perfume or lotion that you love, everyday. Keep everflowering plants in your house (I have 4 hibiscus that bloom 12 months of the year). Have a massage regularly. In the fall, keep a nice soft throw on your couch, especially if you have leather furniture! Cook your favorite recipe just for yourself, on a week night. Eat by candlelight. Take time for a nice, long bath, instead of a quick shower. Have a healthy sensuality. Being sensual is a way to nourish your soul. And yes, guys, this is for you also.
