Music can bring back wonderful feelings and memories and often songs from our past bring back memories. Download a few songs that remind you of happy times and listen to them on the way to work. Fragrances also bring back fond memories, so while you write in your journal read a book, or even take a bubble bath, light a candle to further add pleasure to the experience.
Nurturing yourself can range from getting a pedicure, a new outfit, or simply picking wildflowers and putting them in a vase for yourself. You don't have to spend money or even a lot of time to nurture yourself. Start by making a list of simple quick ways to nurture yourself on a busy day, such as keeping a journal, lighting a candle, reading a book, taking a short walk in nature, calling a friend, listening to your favorite song, watching the sunset, spending time in nature. Make a special list of other ways to nurture yourself for achieving bigger goals such as getting a new outfit, a pedicure, a massage.
Nurturing yourself improves sleep, reduces stress, and promotes self love and all of this helps you stay healthy and keeps you in balance.
