17 Secret Simple Steps to Handcraft Sanctuary for Your Soul

Who are you as woman at work and who are you as a woman when you return home?

While you’re at work, you’re attentive to your responsibilities as an employee and for the most part, enjoy your job. You do this for eight hours a day five days a week. But your responsibilities don’t stop there.

 ~ You had a full day of demands, deadlines and answered to someone else’s wants and needs. Your day isn’t even done and you’re already making a list of what needs to happen tomorrow.

 ~ By the end of each work day, you drive home, park your car, and as you sit there a moment, you express a sigh of relief and say to yourself, “I’m home”.

 ~ You grab your purse, get out of the car, maybe grab a bag of groceries and make your way to the door.

 ~ You don’t realize how exhausted you are and brain dead until you step through the door and basically drop everything on the counter.

Where do you drop?

How do you rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul without self-medicating or going to the bar? Let me introduce you to a place I call a

Being a Goddess? Yes, You

With the help of Google, I found a perfume commercial I remember seeing in 1980 where the jingle is “I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan and never let you forget you’re a man.” She smells good, all beautiful and flaunts she can still take care of her man after she’s been at work all day. I’m not joking, here’s the link https://youtu.be/jA4DR4vEgrs

But what about her?

  • Let’s see, that was 1980. It’s 2022. Where is she now?
  • You are worthy to be the Goddess, even if it’s only for 30 minutes.
  • Give yourself permission because your mental health is begging you to.

Where is your retreat?

The Benefits of Your Sanctuary 

  • Once you have established your Sanctuary for Your Soul, you will be more inclined to use it.
  • Your ambiance silences the ringing of your phone, the voices in your head, and the interruptions that splinter your day.
  • You can actually shut the door, lay back in a cozy chair with your head resting on a pillow, shoes off, a soft blanket over you, and with your favorite music playing, close your eyes while your mind is melting away 8 hours you left behind.
  • The results give you a healthy effect on your brain so you can think clearly for the rest of the day and a fresh start for the regimen you’ll do again tomorrow.


 You Can Use Nature, or Just Photos

Connecting with nature whether in real time or scenes of nature in photographs, gives you the visual eye candy that nourishes your brain and gives you self-renewal.

     Visualize or Meditate

     ~ Feel the earth under your feet while dreaming you’re wading along the shore of a crystal clear lake and the waves tickle your toes.

     ~ Imagine you hear the rush of water as the river travels to the ocean, but you’re afloat in your cozy chair.

     ~ Almost smell the fragrance of beautiful, brightly colored flowers and enjoy their beauty like your own garden, but they hang on your wall where the garden will always stay vibrant. No watering or weeding needed.

     ~ You can fantasize you’re on a tropical island feeling the sun kiss your body from head to toe and hear the sounds of the ocean without the price of an airplane ticket.

      You are now a Goddess!
