How to feel like a nymph

*Wash your face with micellar water

*Paint your nails with a gold or bronze nail polish

*Take long baths and showers

*Hum to yourself–sing loudly if the mood strikes

*Use a hydrating toner

*Go swimming and then lie in the sun

*Use a mineral water facial mist

*Use perfume with neroli or lavender or bergamot

How to feel like a dryad

*Laugh loudly and with inhibition

*Bend with the breeze and stand firm against the storm–be flexible but stand firm on your principles and convictions

*Wear perfume with pine or cedar or vanilla

*Dress in natural colors–forest greens, unbleached whites, autumn reds and oranges, earth browns

*Sit quietly in the sun and drink up the light or bask in the moonlight after dusk

*Spend time with friends for no other reason but to enjoy their company

*Dance frequently–alone, with friends, with your lover, with family

*Sing. Your voice is beautiful

*Wear light makeup or just go barefaced–what can compare to the natural beauty of a tree? Nothing. And nothing compares to you either

*Go hiking (wear good shoes)

*Use a natural oil on your face (e.g. argan oil, safflower, rosehip, hemp)

*Shed toxic relationships like fall leaves

*Sit under trees–talk to them if you feel like it (they are very good listeners)

*Brush your hair out and let it be free (alternatively, if you have hair that can’t be brushed, shake it out and let it do its thing)

*Reuse and recycle

*Trim your nails to a practical length
