You Owe It to Yourself

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
  • Bathing pleasures
  • Creative selfishness
  • Herbal remedies
  • 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.
