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 favour."
LUCIA CAPACCHIONE, Ph.D., author of 'The Well Being Journal' and 'Recovery of Your Inner Child'

"Louden's amazing encyclopaedia 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 HAGAN, 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, including:
• Comfort rituals
• Creative Selfishness
• Hiding under the covers
• Herbal help
• A Comfort Journal
• Holiday Blues
• Bathing Pleasures
• A Personal Sanctuary

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

Jennifer Louden has written for television and leads workshops for women who want to restore their balance of comfort. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Chris, and their dog, Atticus.
