THE ART OF BEING A LADY | Find the Beauty in Life

It is so easy to get tangled up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

These damaging emotions have no room in the life of an IT Girl and can be easily avoided. Follow these four simple rules to help you find the beauty in life.

  • Indulge your senses…Everyone has a sense that is a bit stronger then their others. Mine is my sense of smell and as a result of this, I’m always taking the time to make sure my that my body products and my surroundings always smell heavenly. It makes me feel good; plain and simple, and very few people realize that indulging your strongest sense is an amazing way to relieve stress. Indulge them by filling your home with beautiful art, melodious music, baby soft fabrics, or ylang yang scented candles and exotic herbal teas.
  • Cultivate your alone time…Some of us, especially those who have small children, very rarely get any alone time. Develop a self-pampering routine that will fit into any allotted time slot regardless of how small or big. You only have 10 minutes to spare? Perfect! Take a short stroll around your neighborhood without any distractions. Take in the sounds of the outdoors and get lost in your thoughts if only for a few seconds. Only 30 minutes before the kids get home? Wonderful! Make a quick cup of tea and enjoy a few pages of your favorite book.

  • Count your blessings…Be thankful for even the smallest successes, the past mistakes that you have overcome, and for being above ground. It is far to easy to forget that the beauty in life is not made up of a few huge triumphs, but a ton of teeny tiny blessings that snowballed into victory.
  • Laugh until it hurts…Oh laughter…It does so many beneficial things for us. It brings people together, it slows aging, and is healthy for the body. Laughter is beautiful and fun and eye opening so why not do it more often?
