When I think of pampering, I think of activities that may strenghten our resolve, boost our energy and fortify our soul--activities that connect us to ourselves or to a higher power and give us the physical, emotional and spiritual grounding we need to thrive in this fast-paced and complex society.
To that end, we at Pampering U are dedicated to bringing you products, tools, articles and resources to help you gain happiness and balance in your everyday lives. Is pampering really necessary? You bet it is. Here's why:
~ When you take the time to take a relaxing bath, you are choosing a centuries-old ritual that has been proven beneficial because water is the most basic element of life and is wonderful for promoting relaxation, relieving stress and connecting the mind and body.
~ Did you know that through the act of non-sexual self-touch--as in the case of a body massage--you are improving your circulation, thus energizing a tired body and mind? You are also helping to loosen deep-seated toxins in the body and skin that are released into the system for natural elimination. In Ayurvedic medicine, Abhyanga (the practice of self-massage with warm massage oils) is recommended as a daily ritual because of its many benefits.
~ If you are like most people, you could probably benefit from a little divine guidance when it comes to seeking information or making critical life decisions. This is why psychics, numerologists and astrologers are so popular. If a physic or numerologist is a little over the top for you, you can still get divine guidance and nurturing from a deck of motivational cards. You may be surprised at the relevance and accuracy of a card reading...
These examples are just a few ways that you can pamper yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually. Through regular self-pampering, not only will be you be able to reduce stress and promote relaxation (which could literally save your life and help you to live longer), you will also increase the positive energy and vibes you are putting out into the world and you'll attract more love, kindness and abundance! So, the question bears repeating: is pampering a necessity or just plain hype? You be the judge.
