It’s no secret that my time in Paris has inspired me to cultivate pleasure.  I’ve written about it, made a video about it and this week on Studio 6 I talked about Adding Pleasure to Your Life.  You can see the segment here.

On the show I suggest giving yourself permission for daily pleasure.  Here are some ideas to get you started.

  • Buy yourself your favorite treat at the store
  • Take yourself on a date
  • Get a massage
  • Spend some time outside
  • Read a book or magazine
  • Pamper yourself
  • Buy a fancy dessert and take it home to enjoy
  • Wear a piece of clothing that feels good against your skin
  • Do something you liked to do when you were young (play, dance, laugh, run through sprinklers, go to an arcade, be silly)
  • Open a good bottle of wine “just because”
  • masturbate

My June newsletter is about bringing pleasure into the bedroom.  It hits inboxes Monday.  You can subscribe here.

Pleasure is about enjoying and relishing!  You can find pleasure in big ways (a vacation or a fancy meal) and in small ways (a nice walk or a fresh strawberry).  Look for opportunities for pleasure every day.  Give yourself permission for daily pleasure and notice how that impacts your life.
