23. Sleep well
24. Love well
25. Make love with yourself

21. Phone a friend – The sweet sound of a friend’s voice and laughter can lift your spirits and remind you that you’re supported and loved in the universe. A caring call is especially helpful when the day begins to feel overwhelming, especially if you can find a little humor to share.

22. Eat well – Take time to prepare yourself a healthy, delicious snack … Brown rice sesame crackers with hummus. Apple wedges with almond butter. Olives and cheese. Kale chips and herbal tea.

23. Sleep well – Get a full night’s sleep for a night … then two nights … then a full week … then most every night after that!

24. Love well – Make love with your partner. Set aside the time and create a warm space filled with candlelight and soft music. Wear something pretty. Linger, enjoy, and reconnect with your partner as a focal point of your passion, rather than daily parenting partner.

25. Make love with yourself – Yes, you read that right. Orgasm can elevate your mood and ease tension in your body through the release of endorphins. Knowing what turns on your own body can also add to the pleasure of making love with your partner when you share the knowledge!
