Have you thought about your five senses lately?
Do you know which of your senses elicit feelings or memories the most easily?
The holiday season provides special or unique sounds, tastes, smells, sights, things to touch.
Cinnamon, ginger, balsam potpourri or candles? (Your nose knows.)
My sister described a soft blouse – “Isn’t it just so Buttery” and had to caress every chenille or velvet throw in the store when we were shopping. (Her sense of touch is important.)
Favorite Christmas carols by favorite artists that make you smile and feel warm inside – Peace on Earth and Joy to the World! (Do You Hear What I Hear?)
Do Christmas lights delight you? Decorations thrill you? (The eyes have it.)
And do we even have to talk about Taste? I know some of you are baking away with special holiday recipes while we’re iced-in here in Dallas this weekend. Peppermint mocha, anyone?
Notice what brings you Comfort and Joy.
- Take $5, $10 or $20 and buy something just for you.
- A chair massage to soothe tense muscles?
- A long bath with wonderful smelling bath salts or candles?
- A favorite tune or two or a movie?
- Ingredients for cookies or bread to share?
- A new little ornament for your tree?
What will you do? I’d love for you to post it in the comment section below.
