A Guiding Hand
One of the great advantages of not having a dishwasher is that it offers you time to focus on your breathing as you think about how warm and soothing the lather feels on your skin – a bubble bath for your hands.
A Little Picture
Select a picture or painting, perhaps a photo you took of a place that has meaning to you. Sit and focus on the total picture or one aspect of it and let the picture stimulate insights and relaxation. Like a picture puzzle, you will start to see different details surface and new ideas form.
A Short Visit
Create a special place where you can take yourself, real or imaginary. A place where you can visit and enjoy the sounds, smells, colors, shapes – a place where no one is expecting or demanding anything from you. Make it a point to make short little visits as often as you can.
