Self Soothing Using The Senses: Part 2 Hearing

Continuing on from last week’s post, we move on to incorporating hearing as part of our self-care routine.  Healthy self soothing is an important part of any human’s self-care routine and incorporating all the senses is vital to stimulate all our mind, body and spiritual needs. So with that in mind, why don’t you, incorporate at least one of these into your new self-care routine this week.
