It is unbelievably soothing! Yes, drops of water do drip down your neck, getting your shirt and pillow a little wet, but that’s a small price to pay for the true calm you’ll feel.

If you are unable to nurture yourself during those difficult times, you may find that taking care of a plant or two encourages you to take care of yourself. Sometimes I feel as if I could use a little warmth, nourishment, and love, but it’s not always easy to give that to myself. Maybe my confidence is a bit low; maybe I’ve had a rough week…or maybe I need the warmth, but I don’t want to make it all about ME. Taking care of someone or something else is always a good option for these times, because then I don’t make it directly about me—but I still find myself in a nurturing space, and that makes me feel nurtured and taken care of.
