(Self) Love is in the Air

The word aphrodisiac comes from the name of the Greek Goddess Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty. The Greek poet, Hesiod derives her name Aphrodite, first part aphrós or “sea foam” with the second part odítē meaning “wanderer” or dítē meaning “bright”. As February, the month of love, comes to an end, I thought I would take a moment to remind you to get in touch with your inner god or goddess and share some of my favorite self-care tips.    

Self-Care in the New Year

It’s important all year round to practice self-care, but it can be especially fitting when the start of a new year rolls around. After leap frogging from house to house for nearly two weeks straight over the holidays, I finally gave the last of my visitors a loving boot and sank into my couch with a warm cup of tea and a new book. Eager to take some time to myself, I settled in…but only to fall asleep three pages into the first chapter. I bid farewell to 2015 with a long overdue nap, and took the New Year as an opportunity to reboot.
