Challenge Myself: Day #12 Pamper Yourself

Today is Day #12 of our Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today is a big one. Today it is to take a moment for yourself and pamper yourself.

We should allow ourselves at least a few moments a day. The book says,

You don't need a reason to indulge in some sensual pleasure. Put a blooming orchid in your bathroom for a super sensual feast for the eyes.

Orchids are known for their lush and colorful blooms that can last for weeks. All they need is a little light, warmth and moisture. The bathroom is a perfect place for that environment.

Put them in a colorful urn, glazed pottery or terra cotta pot. Put it on a windowsill, shelf or plant stand.

Put on some music. Draw a bath of water. Drop in your favorite scented oil and a few orchid blooms. On a tray or small table nearby, place a flute of sparkling cider, champagne or wine, a chocolate truffle a scented candle and a book.

Take your time, close your eyes, luxuriate, and let the cares and concerns to float away if only just for now. When you step out of your bath and back into the world, you will feel renewed and ready to meet whatever challenges there may be or coming your way.

Just For Today: I will take a moment just for myself.

From the book: Live Happy
