Rock Your Sense of Touch

When you’re looking to sooth your weary, perhaps ruffled soul, surround yourself with soft. Consider splurging on a pair of cashmere socks or scarf. Whatever you choose to do, focus on wearing soft, comfortable clothes made of natural fibers such as soft cotton or decadent bamboo or timeless silk. Natural fiber not only feel good, but they also breathe.

Choosing soft pajamas, clothing, scarves, whatever touches your skin, can elevate your mood therefore increasing your level of zen.

If for some reason you find your closet full of unpronounceable blends, rayon or polyester (gasp), consider going on a little shopping trip. If you’re incredibly busy and abundant in the pocketbook, visit your favorite online store, click a couple times, wait for the doorbell to ring and voila. If you’re less abundant in the pocketbook than in time, consider visiting some second hand stores. Not only can you save money on high-end pieces that are gently used, but you can also help save the environment by reducing the need for additional manufacturing. Look at you...being an environmental hero. Now pat yourself on the back. Go on...do it.

While you’re rocking the soft clothes, think about other ways to introduce a little extra softness in your daily life. This may mean finding a new set of pajamas, taking a cushion to the office to make your work chair the envy of everyone on your floor, perhaps getting some gel insole inserts for your favorite shoes is your answer or upgrading your toilet paper selection is the perfect fit. Whatever it is, do it. Enjoy it. Revel in the comfort. Now rock those soft, cotton PJ's.
