Why Not Add More Pleasure to Your Life?

Why Not Add More Pleasure to Your Life?

It’s that time of year. We’re thinking about our resolutions and goals for the new year. I always have the best of intentions; this time I think I’ll have no problem keeping mine. Actually it will be a sheer pleasure.  Why not add more pleasure to your life? It starts with making a plan. Define it however you’d like, though I’m thinking of  sensual pleasures.

My plan is to find new ways to celebrate myself this year by engaging in exploration, pleasure and creative endeavors. Somewhere in there is all the usual sexy stuff, but it’s more than that. My pleasure plan is about bringing ME alive.

Here’s an excerpt from my article, Planning for a Year of Pleasure:

“Pleasure is not a naughty word.

As mothers, caregivers, grandmothers, single women or partners we need individual moments of pleasure to keep us going. They stoke the fire; they give us the energy to participate in a full life.

Feeling good about ourselves—however that manifests for you—helps us feel more vibrant and sexier. There are several components to a good pleasure plan. They include the physical and the emotional. Get the blood flowing, the skin tingly, the senses engaged and you will feel the sexual energy flowing through your body. Don’t forget the mind.  Incorporate pleasures that engage you mentally—whether it’s explicitly sexual or a more overall sensuous feeling. ”

Read the article for more, including some of the things on my list. My new watercolors are being shipped as we speak!   

What about your 2014? How will you increase the pleasure in your life?

      Absolutely. Why wouldn’t we take the time to craft out a plan like this? I’m pretty excited…like play dates, spa retreats and ‘free’ days all rolled into one!

    Yes…making pleasure a priority impacts all areas of our lives. Planning for having it daily sets a good foundation for feeling good and creating life the way you want it. I enjoyed reading your list.

      I challenge you to get daring! I can’t tell you how excited I am about the painting… it’s pretty sensual as well… then I started thinking about body painting… all kinds of ideas. Let me know what you decide to do for pleasure this year!

    I love your list and the idea of a plan. One thing I’m enjoying more than I expected to in this new career as a Realtor is dressing up every day.

      Dressing up–makes you feel a little sexier doesn’t it? Even if it is ‘work’.
