Yes, we know. You were thinking of all of the nice things you could do for, or with, your partner. Well, women, when was the last time you thought of something nice just for yourself? This book has ideas for comforting us through a variety of situations in each of our lives, with wide ranging suggestions for activities to get you through the tough stuff and support yourself in a healthy way. (A great gift for partners to give, too...) Highly recommended. Author: Jennifer Louden
Here’s what the publisher has to say about this lovely book:
Nurturing comes naturally to most women -- as long as it’s directed toward someone else. Taking care of yourself is more difficult. You don’t have time. It feels self-indulgent. You’re simply too tired. Here -- for women too busy to worry about their well-being -- are more than two hundred soothing recipes and inventive rituals for relaxation, practical self-care, and personal growth, including:
Comfort rituals -- give yourself permission to stay under the covers
A comfort journal -- how to get started
Ways to beat the holiday blues
How to create your own personal sanctuary
Organized by topic and cross-referenced throughout, this is a wonderfully comprehensive resource for refreshing and replenishing the self.
