Self care is best achieved by caring for the whole person: body, mind and spirit.  Caring for the whole person is best achieved by engaging all of our 5 senses.  

Sight, Sound, Smell, Taste and Touch.  

Helen & Jerry share some ideas on how to provide self care through our 5 senses.  It's particularly appropriate during the holiday season when there are so many things seeking the attention of our 5 senses, through holiday music, the smells of the season, the taste of special holiday food, the holiday lights that vie for our attention, and the even the feel of the season around a holiday fire, or wrapped in a fuzzy blanket.  

The purpose of this Five for Friday is to inspire you to look for ways that you can provide self care that's individualized for you, ways that can engage all of who you are, and how you engage with the world around you during the holiday season.  

For more tips related to self care at the holidays, be sure and visit our website at and check out our blog page.
