Review:

If the pace of your life or depths of your depression leave you lacking in body and soul, this book can help you feel whole again. Jennifer Louden encourages you to assemble and draw on personal rituals, journals and sanctuaries that can add comfort and breathing space to your life. Some are obvious (herbal baths, flowers) or seem too silly, New Age, or time-consuming to tickle every fancy (blow bubbles in traffic jams, chant affirmations). Many more seem sublime and creative. But that's her point: pick and choose what works best for you, but do take some actions to make your life happier.

From the Back Cover:

Body-and-soul sustenance to make the hard times easier and the good times better : The Woman's Comfort Book

The Woman's Comfort Book guides you with hundreds of simply wonderful and practical treats for nurturing yourself in body, mind, and spirit. An invaluable reference manual for doing yourself a favor."--Lucia Capacchione, Ph.D., author of The Well-Being Journal and

"Louden's amazing encyclopedia of self-love works; to build self-esteem, to practice self-care, and to keep pleasure on your daily to-do list. Don't deny yourself--every woman needs this book."--Kay Leigh Hogan, author of Internal Affairs and Prayers to the Moon

"Some women are taught self-nurturing by loving parents. Others seem to have intuitive knowledge about self-care. Many of us ask therapists to teach us. Now we have our own reference book--we need it!"--Jennifer James, Ph.D., author of Women and the Blues

Nurturance comes naturally to most women--as long as it's directed at someone else. But taking care of yourself is more difficult. You don't have time. It feels self-indulgent. You're simply too tired. Here--for women too busy to worry about their well-being--are more than two hundred soothing recipes and inventive rituals for relaxation, practical self-care, and gentle growth.

Organized by topic and cross-referenced throughout, this is a wonderfully comprehensive resource for refreshing and replenishing the self.
