Home Hack: Majorly Cut Down on Cleaning Time with These 5 Genius Ideas

Cleaning can be such a chore.

Whether it’s as simple as wiping down the countertops or an annual afternoon spent scrubbing the oven, household to-dos can quickly pile up — and overwhelm you.

This year, get ahead of these tedious tasks before they get ahold of you. Sound too good to be true? Try these five simple tricks that will make your home spotless without the everyday stress.

1. Trash Can Trick
There are few things more frustrating than taking out the trash, forgetting to replace the bag and accidentally dumping something in the uncovered can. Cut out the middleman by keeping a few bags at the bottom of the bin. After tying up the old, all you have to do is reach down for the new.

2. Sheet Treat
Linen closet out of control? Corral your spare sheet sets by folding up the bed coverings and placing them inside their coordinating pillowcase. Stack the pretty packages to save on space (and sanity).

3. Clever Kits
Instead of keeping all of your supplies in the pantry or under the kitchen sink, make mini baskets of the essentials to be stored in the room’s you tend to the most. Gather your secret weapons — like all-purpose cleaners, gloves, sponges, etc. — place them in a bucket and store somewhere easily accessible, but out of sight.

4. Better Baking
There are few activities less enjoyable than cleaning the oven. Save yourself a ton of elbow grease by lining the bottom with a silicon liner. Not only will it catch everyday spills and stains, but when it becomes truly unbearable, all you have to do is remove it and wipe it down. No getting on your hands and knees required.

5. Storage Savior
It seems cabinet space is always lacking, but this quick fix can help. Place a standard shelf organizer inside your cramped quarters to add vertical space for dishes or other essentials. You’ll be amazed at how such little effort will reap such noticeable results.

Tom Brady Doesn’t Do ‘Cheat Days’: ‘I Believe in the Ideas of Balance and Moderation’

Tom Brady‘s famous diet is low in meat, high in fiber and free of sugar, strawberries, coffee and more. But he does have the occasional cheeseburger or treat — he just doesn’t call it a “cheat day.”

“I don’t plan ‘cheat days’ … I actually don’t believe in the idea,” the New England Patriots quarterback told PEOPLE in September. “The way I eat makes me feel great. But I believe in the ideas of balance and moderation, and if I’m in a place with incredible food, I’ll absolutely try it.”

As Brady explains in his new book, The TB12 Method, he’ll switch up his diet on special occasions — like a trip to Italy with wife Gisele Bündchen.

“Last year, my wife and I went to Italy, a country that presents a lot of temptation,” he writes. “… In Italy I definitely ate some things that were not TB12-compliant! My brain and body needed that downtime.”

“I won’t always turn down a cheeseburger or an ice cream cone,” he adds. “I just won’t have one every night and I won’t have ten of them, either.”

RELATED VIDEO: Tom Brady: I Let My Daughter Get Away with “Everything”

 

In his book, Brady also details the “core concepts of muscle pliability” to which he credits his continued success in the punishing NFL at age 40.

“The improvement I’ve seen in my training is less about any particular movement and more about changing the focus of my training to incorporate pliability,” he tells PEOPLE. “Before and after every workout, my body coach Alex performs deep-force muscle work to make sure my muscles are long, soft and primed for activity.”

Designed in collaboration with Guerrero, the mobility program makes up the bulk of the book, and is also the focus of the TB12 Training Center in Foxboro, Mass. The techniques range from strength-building movements using resistance bands to stretches with vibrating foam rollers and massage balls.

The muscle pliability program hasn’t been scientifically proven to work — a New York Times review of The TB12 Method found no studies or clinical trials on the concept, and Stuart Phillips, a professor at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, and an expert in muscle physiology, told the Times “It’s balderdash.”

But Brady touts the program as the key to his success, and his continued prowess on the field shows that he is clearly doing something right. With the book, he and Guerrero hope to supply “everyone, everywhere” with the muscle pliability program.

“I’d gotten to a place early in my career where I thought physical pain and strain was part of the job. Through working with Alex we’ve improved my muscle pliability, which protects my body, and our resistance band exercises have helped me develop the optimal functional strength I need to succeed on the field,” Brady tells PEOPLE. “I’m definitely a stronger and faster quarterback now compared to my 20s.”

This article first appeared on the blog of Intentional Insights, a nonprofit organization that empowers people to refine and reach their goals by providing research-based content to help improve thinking, feeling, and behavior patterns.

Right now you have something within your reach with an almost magical ability to break out of wrong ideas. You can use it to process data and identify patterns and trends. What do you think it is? Take a guess before reading onward.

Did you guess your computer or your phone? Then you’re wrong! What I’m talking about is much, much more powerful than that. It’s more powerful than the fastest supercomputer on the planet.

I’m talking about your brain.

Humans didn’t spread out to rule the entire planet because of bigger muscles or sharper claws. Intelligence, the kind of intelligence that all humans have, is our superpower. It’s what separates us from other animals, and it is your greatest resource.

But most people don’t really use their brain to its full potential. Do you?

You certainly weren’t taught to use its real potential in school. Children are taught facts that will pass tests, but the skills that are most important in life usually don’t involve stuff that’s on an exam. How do I make plans? How should I decide between places to live? What’s the best way to negotiate for higher pay? All of these questions involve thinking about and modeling the future. Imagine how many fewer poor decisions you will make and how much better off your life will be if you learn how to unlock your brain’s true potential and gain agency over your life!

Want to know a secret? It’s actually pretty easy to make big improvements to how you think. A few quick tricks can make a world of difference and boost your future-predicting power. I’ll share one of them right now.

Have you ever heard of Confirmation Bias? It’s one of the known problems that scientists have discovered about how we naturally think. Imagine a friend suggests that people who drive red cars are bad drivers. At first you don’t think that’s true, but after hearing a few stories of bad drivers in red cars from your friend, you think he might be onto something. The next time you’re on the road you notice a red car swerving around like a maniac… proof! You’re a believer now. You start seeing reckless drivers in red cars all the time.

If you don’t believe me, I challenge you to try it out. Drive for a month looking for reckless drivers in red cars. You’ll see them everywhere. Or you can save yourself the time and trouble. This perception would only be in your head!

If you actually use science you’ll find this is false. What happens is that if you look for something you’ll find it, but you’ll also end up ignoring things that don’t fit the pattern. If a blue car does something dangerous you won’t think about it. If a red car drives safely then maybe it’s just a fluke or maybe you’ll interpret it as reckless anyway.

Confirmation Bias affects all sorts of things, from racial prejudices to conspiracy theories to personal relationships. If you expect someone you know to act sad, you’ll notice their sadness and ignore their happiness. And importantly, it can hurt your ability to predict the future.

Imagine a gambler who loses five games of poker in a row. She thinks “I’ve been getting bad luck for a long time… surely my next hand will have to be good to balance it out!” Have you ever thought something like that? I have. After two more bad hands she finally gets a good hand and thinks to herself “I knew it!” But she was wrong twice before being right! With that sort of sloppy thinking it would’ve been smarter just to walk away.

There are several tricks to avoiding this bias and being a better thinker. The one I’m going to share today is to visualize alternate universes regularly. An alternate universe is just a world exactly like this one but where one or two things are different.

2016-12-22-1482416209-1460396-howifeel.png

Let’s use the example of drivers of red cars being reckless. There are two alternate universes here. One alternate universe is where drivers of red cars are *safer* than normal. The other is where red car-drivers are just as good at driving as anyone else. Take a moment to visualize these alternatives and imagine what they look like. Can you see how that would help? Just like focusing on red cars being dangerous causes you notice examples that fit the story, focusing on the opposite lets you catch examples you might otherwise miss. It’s all about controlling where you put your attention.

Let me give an example from my personal life. I once met someone who I had heard was “obnoxious.” Indeed, when I first met him I could immediately see why: the man had almost no social skills. With the seed of “obnoxious” sown in my mind I began to get annoyed when around him. I noticed every time he said the wrong thing or didn’t seem to understand what the topic of conversation was. But then I remembered what I had learned from my research into psychology and I flipped my thinking: I imagined the alternate universe where this guy was cool and easy to be around.

Did my visualization of the alternate universe mean my friend suddenly became suave and charming? Not at all. But it did make him not obnoxious! Specifically, I realized that having weak social skills did not mean I had to find spending time with him unpleasant, and I began to enjoy my time with him much more. I also noticed that his social skills weren’t as bad as I had initially thought. There were a few times when, not trapped by “small talk” or the pressure of meeting someone new, I noticed him acting much more like his alternate-universe counterpart than I would have otherwise expected.

I don’t invite this friend to parties very often (I doubt he’d even enjoy the experience), but we still talk fairly regularly and he’s someone I know that I can turn to if I have a difficult problem in his field. Without the technique of visualizing alternate universes I would have worse social interactions, fewer friends, and be generally less wise. This simple trick has brought many, many people success in their relationships, their work, and elsewhere!

This is just one step on the path to being a better thinker about the future, and as we move forward I think you’ll see how the technique of visualizing alternate universes can be used for becoming more intelligent, effective, and happy!

What do you think?

Have you had success in improving your life through visualizations before?
Do you know anyone in your personal life that seems just convinced about something that isn’t true?
Can you think of any areas of your life where you might have an incorrect perception of the world?
What are specific steps you can take to apply the techniques in this article to improve your perception of the world?

DIY Party Ideas You’ve Never Seen Before

You’re getting married, congratulations! It’s bound to be one of the most special moments of your life. Before you say the “I dos,” though, a caveat: The list of things you’ll feel pressured to buy for your wedding will probably run the length of a football field (or two). 

Unless you have the sewing skills of a wizard, you’ll probably have to outsource the dress. Maybe you’re a highly motivated baking aficionado and will be making your own cake. If neither of these apply, don’t fret. You can still DIY your way to happily ever after—just do it with decor. For a dreamy outdoor wedding, make string lights using mini cupcake liners. Marble paper for placecards to perk up any table. Or dry pineapple flowers to one-up that open bar with the prettiest cocktails you ever did see. Here are 10 DIY wedding decor ideas to make your big day a little more you:

Pom-Fringed Table Runner by Laura Kaesshaefer

Black & Decker the Complete Guide to Home Storage: More Than 50 Practical Projects & Ideas

Black & Decker the Complete Guide to Home Storage: More Than 50 Practical Projects & Ideas


At any given moment, your home probably contains thousands of moveable items, some large but most small: dishes and drain cleaners, blankets and baby books, socks and sleeping bags, hammers and hotdog buns, candles and can-openers and cribbage boards. In a perfect world, most of these items have homes-places where they’re stored outside daily view but where you can find them at a moments notice. In our imperfect world, though, there are probably hundreds of items that are nomads, transients. They have temporary, exposed residences in jumbled drawers, on top of cabinets, across desktops, on window ledges. How often have you looked long and hard for an item in every logical storage place, only to find that it’s been hiding in plain view, in the last place you’d expect? The goal of this book is to help you bring order to this jumble, to tame and civilize the hoards of small and large household items begging for permanent, logical storage. To do this, we’ll give you dozens of easy-to-build storage projects. Each is designed for adaptability and versatility, so you can use it for a variety of different purposes in various rooms. Some projects may require small alterations, but others can be built exactly as directed. Before getting to the projects, we give you a section on planning and assessing, and a section on general building techniques that will be useful in many different projects. After that, it’s off to the storage races, with more than 50 projects, ranging from basic wall cabinets to innovative racks for storing CDs and home electronics. While many projects use standard lumber and other building pipe and electrical conduit. Have fun with these projects. Take the time to plan themout, and take pride in them when you’re finished. Remember: When you increase the efficiency of your storage space, you create a more comfortable living environment for yourself and your family. Innovative, attractive projects that can provide efficient storage throughout your home Easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for projects at all skill levels Shows how to frame, finish and organize a brand-new closet Variations and ideas sections to help you adapt projects to your needs Detailed techniques section for working with power and hand tools

12 Summer Weekend Outfit Ideas for People Who Don’t Wear Shorts

For many of us, shorts are a summer wardrobe staple. For others, they’re the absolute worst.

So if you fall into the latter camp that shuns cutoffs and the like, fret not. There are tons of terrific casual summer outfits that you can rock from this weekend through Labor Day. Here are 12 non-shorts summer outfit ideas that can even convince the most die-hard shorts aficionado to trade in her favorite culottes:

t-shirt-dress-with-love-from-kat-2

Try a T-shirt dress with espadrilles. Add some shape to the silhouette by tying a button-down shirt around your waist or adding a belt.

shirtdress-bishop-holland-5

Bishop and Holland

Shirt dresses may read work outfit, but there are great options that are easy and breezy, like this eyelet style. Add bold accessories to punch it up.

slipdress-hello-fashion

Summer is pretty much the only time you can get away with a slip dress during the day. Pair yours with gladiator sandals to toughen up the sweet look.

off-the-shoulder-dress-fit-fab-mom

Off-the-shoulder tops and dresses are a great way to show some skin without baring too much. Pair yours with flat mules and a fun fedora!

matches-set-style-me-grasie-9

Choose a matched skirt and top set in a bold print. Top with a denim jacket on chillier days.

midi-song-of-style

Song of Style

An off-the-shoulder top looks great with a midi skirt and strappy sandals.

chambray-eyelet-pair-and-a-spare-8

A Pair and a Spare

Grab your tried-and-true chambray shirt and knot it at the waist with a fit-and-flare skirt.

denim-mini-blonde-salad

The Blonde Salad

Speaking of denim, who needs jean cutoffs when you’ve got a denim mini? Team yours up with a denim tank or even a basic white T-shirt.

breezy-pants-fashion-me-now-3

Fashion Me Now

If shorts aren’t your thing, a pair of gauzy palazzo pants are a great staple. Throw on a basic tank and flat slides and you’re good to go!

bold-maxi-glam-files-3

The Glam Files

Make a statement in a bold-color maxidress. Wear it with flat gold or silver sandals for day or night.

cropped-overalls-we-wore-what-36

We Wore What

Cropped overalls give you that denim shorts feel without going all the way.

jumpsuit-something-navy-7

Something Navy

And the easiest outfit possible: the jumpsuit. Grab one in black or white and you’ll be set from day to date!

Now that your outfits are ready, let’s focus on getting amazing summer skin:

11 Stylish Outfit Ideas for July 4th—and Beyond

As much as you may think you want that American flag-printed shirt for July Fourth weekend, there are so many more subtle ways to show your patriotism. Check out 11 of our favorites below. Bonus: They’re so chic you can wear each one through the rest of the summer!

july-4-damsel-in-dior

Damsel in Dior

Looking for the perfect barbecue outfit? Reach for a red-and-blue striped T-shirt dress and silver slip-on sandals.

july-4-tyler-joe-colorblock

Tyler Joe

If you want to get especially festive, go the color-blocking route. Structured red and blue pieces lend a mature vibe to the outfit while black-and-white sneakers ground the look.

july-4-lily-love-affair-2

A Lily Love Affair

If a picnic is on the agenda, try a blue-and-white striped dress that has a little flair like a cutout under the bustline. Shield yourself from the sun with a straw hat and specs.

july-4-something-navy

Something Navy

Is there anything more Americana than denim? Update your go-to style with a new shape—think a casual romper or jumpsuit.

july-4-merricks-art

Merrick’s Art

If you’re not so keen on going full-on red, white, and blue, look to accessories like a bright clutch and tinted sunglasses to give your outfit a subtle pop of color. Even better, they’re still work once the holiday weekend has come and gone.

july-4-luella-june

Luella & June

An LWD is always party-ready, especially during the summer months. Invest in one you absolutely love and it will take you from fancy cocktails to a casual garden party.

july-4-man-repeller

Man Repeller

Though it’s historically referred to as a Canadian tuxedo, denim-on-denim is a fantastic option for July Fourth weekend. Mix and match hues and textures so your styling looks deliberate.

july-4-sincerely-jules

Sincerely Jules

A Breton stripe tee and jean shorts is a wonderfully patriotic look for the Fourth, but just as classic and appropriate for the other 364 days of the year.

july-4-polka-dot-tyler-joe

Tyler Joe

An off-the-shoulder silhouette may not scream Fourth of July, but really, who cares? The beginning of summer is the perfect time to test-drive new trends you’ve been dying to try.

july-4-we-wore-what

We Wore What

Get excited to try a new denim style this holiday. It’s all about the the jean dress—from boxy shift dresses to girly A-line silhouettes, there are tons of silhouettes out there for every personality.

july-4-gal-meets-glam

Gal Meets Glam

Layer a chambray shirt over a red-and-white striped dress to add an extra bit of styling fun. Sneakers and a slouchy clutch match the look’s laid-back vibe.

Tribal Science: Brains, Beliefs and Bad Ideas

Tribal Science: Brains, Beliefs and Bad Ideas


How do you define science? And whose theories are the right ones? Take a humorous and intriguing journey through the unchartered territory of scientific squabbles with scientist Mike McRae, Australia’s next-gen Dr Karl, as he reveals arguments and accusations about who is right and who is wrong in the world of science. Over time, science has come to permeate our everyday existence: advertisements for beauty products use words that sound scientific, movie makers blur the lines between science and science fiction, and people spend billions and risk their health on bogus medical treatments. Without knowing it, we have accepted science as a social practice to explain and understand the world around us. Charting the history of science and our trust and blind faith in ‘science’, Mike McRae boldly examines the boundaries of what constitutes science and what doesn’t. In an engaging and straightforward way, McRae explains how and why science developed and why it works, and gives us tools to interpret the good science from the bad. Intelligent and entertaining, Tribal Science reveals a compelling paradox that lies at the very heart of science and our everyday lives.

It works wonderfully as a base color for your wedding, and it can be complemented either by warm tones, like orange, yellow, or coral, or cool tones, like blue or purple.

Sarah Jessica Parker Has 3 Holiday Party Outfit Ideas to Try

As the last weekend before Christmas, this one’s kind of packed with holiday parties. The bad news is that by now, you’ve probably already worn your favorite go-tos once or twice. In order to spend as little time as possible standing in front of the closet (and more time having fun), I’m sharing three easy outfit ideas Sarah Jessica Parker just shared with Neiman Marcus’s blog.

sarah-jessica-parker-blue-dress-clio-image-awards

“I love wearing winter white,” she said, calling out an ivory t-strap Carrie heel from her SJP line. “I love picturing [that shoe] with a black velvet party dress.” The classic color combo is always a winner, and I love the touch of richness that sumptuous velvet provides. The fabric is gorgeous, but tricky to wear in spring and summer—take advantage of the chilly weather and experiment (Avery’s even done all the shopping for you!).

black-velvet-dress-outfit-idea

If black velvet’s not your thing, SJP suggested wearing white heels with a tailored black pant or a festive-hued crimson skirt. And if it’s white shoes you’re nervous about, consider two of her other favorites: the Brooks and the Doris, “a true evening silhouette that does everything you want a special-occassion shoe to do.”

An Inquiry Into the Original of Our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue in Two Treatises

An Inquiry Into the Original of Our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue in Two Treatises


Francis Hutcheson’s first book, An Inquiry into the Original of Our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue, was published in 1725, when its author was only thirty-one, and went through four editions during his lifetime. This seminal text of the Scottish Enlightenment is now available for the first time in a variorum edition based on the 1726 edition. The Inquiry was written as a critical response to the work of Bernard Mandeville and as a defense of the ideas of Anthony Ashley Cooper, Lord Shaftesbury. It consists of two treatises exploring our aesthetic and our moral abilities. Francis Hutcheson was a crucial link between the continental European natural law tradition and the emerging Scottish Enlightenment. Hence, he is a pivotal figure in the Natural Law and Enlightenment Classics series. A contemporary of Lord Kames and George Turnbull, an acquaintance of David Hume, and the teacher of Adam Smith, Hutcheson was arguably the leading figure in making Scotland distinctive within the general European Enlightenment. Wolfgang Leidhold is Professor of Political Science at the University of Cologne. Knud Haakonssen is Professor of Intellectual History and Director of the Centre for Intellectual History at the University of Sussex, England.

Of Course Mindy Kaling Has Perfect Outfit Ideas for Meeting His Parents Over Thanksgiving

Have holiday plans that include a big, important, nerve-inducing introduction to, say, the parents of the guy you’ve been dating for the last six months or so? It’s a stressful situation always, but doing it over a high-performance meal like Thanksgiving makes it even more intimidating. Enter Mindy Kaling (and Mindy Lahiri), master of the colorful, fashion-forward, parent-appropriate outfit. Take a cue from her before packing your suitcase and go into the hellos with confidence.

#1. A Cocktail Dress Layered Over a Button-Up

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

Have a flirty dress that completely broadcasts “This is who I am, world”? Those are the pieces in our closet that typically give us the most confidence, but skinny straps or a curve-hugging cut don’t always jump out as the most appropriate when making a first impression on future in-laws. I love this styling trick: put a classic button-up under it to instantly make it feel more professional. The added layer gives you an extra bit of warmth, too, if you’re holidaying somewhere cold.

#2. A Wrap Dress

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

There’s a reason the wrap dress is such a classic—it’s flattering on all body types. The easy style strikes the perfect note between dressed up but not overly so, a major check in its pro column if you’re not sure whether his family goes casual or not for the big meal. If you’re busty, avoid over exposure by wearing with a thin camisole.

#3. One Bold Accessory

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

Whether you’re sticking with a safe and simple LBD or dressing for a casual get-together, let some personality shine through via a bold accessory (I love Mindy’s orangey red pair heels). It’ll make for a great conversation starter if his mom’s super into fashion and, if not, it’ll make you smile every time you catch a glimpse. Win-win.

#4. A Statement Coat

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

Career expert Nicole Williams told me we have under three seconds to make a first impression, so think about this: If you’ll first be greeting your love’s parents after walking in from the outside or in the parking lot of a restaurant, they’ll see whatever coat you have on, not the carefully selected outfit you’ve got on underneath. Consider leaving your warm, down-filled puffer at home and pull on something more tailored instead.

#5. Matching Monochrome

A photo posted by Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) on

If you don’t want to do all black or navy but a bold print feels too risky, consider something in between. The monochrome look is chic no matter what shade you select, and a bright brings in a whole lot of personality. To experiment with a pattern, try a graphic windowpane.

Are you meeting your love’s parents for the first time this holiday season? Do you remember what you wore the first time you did? I was getting ready for a 7-hour car ride before I met my in-laws, so I bet I was in jeans…

Liberty and Freedom: A Visual History of America’s Founding Ideas

Liberty and Freedom: A Visual History of America’s Founding Ideas


Liberty and freedom: Americans agree that these values are fundamental to our nation, but what do they mean? How have their meanings changed through time? In this new volume of cultural history, David Hackett Fischer shows how these varying ideas form an intertwined strand that runs through the core of American life. Fischer examines liberty and freedom not as philosophical or political abstractions, but as folkways and popular beliefs deeply embedded in American culture. Tocqueville called them “habits of the heart.” From the earliest colonies, Americans have shared ideals of liberty and freedom, but with very different meanings. Like DNA these ideas have transformed and recombined in each generation. The book arose from Fischer’s discovery that the words themselves had differing origins: the Latinate “liberty” implied separation and independence. The root meaning of “freedom” (akin to “friend”) connoted attachment: the rights of belonging in a community of freepeople. The tension between the two senses has been a source of conflict and creativity throughout American history. Liberty & Freedom studies the folk history of those ideas through more than 400 visions, images, and symbols. It begins with the American Revolution, and explores the meaning of New England’s Liberty Tree, Pennsylvania’s Liberty Bells, Carolina’s Liberty Crescent, and “Don’t Tread on Me” rattlesnakes. In the new republic, the search for a common American symbol gave new meaning to Yankee Doodle, Uncle Sam, Miss Liberty, and many other icons. In the Civil War, Americans divided over liberty and freedom. Afterward, new universal visions were invented by people who had formerly been excluded from a free society–African Americans, American Indians, and immigrants. The twentieth century saw liberty and freedom tested by enemies and contested at home, yet it brought the greatest outpouring of new visions, from Franklin Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms to Martin Luther King’s “dream” to Janis Joplin’s “not

Bridal Shower Ideas for the Non-Traditional Bride

The concept of the bridal shower originated about 300 years ago. According to wedding lore, a Dutch woman’s Dad refused to give her a dowry because he did not care for her choice in mates so all the women folk in the village got together and showered her with gifts so she could marry the man she loved.

Obviously, 300 years ago, and even 30 years ago, a bride needed lots of household items to get her marriage off to a good start. These days, so many couples are living together before they wed that you probably already have plenty of dishes and pots and pans. Wedding showers can be far more creative and personalized and your shower can bring you gifts that appease both your material and spiritual needs.

1. Give some thought to the shower you want. There are so many options and so many variables. Think about what would best suit you, including your level of participation and whether or not you want it to be a surprise. Give these questions some thought:

• Where would you like it to be?
• Who would you want to be there?
• What kind of theme would you like?
• What would you like to experience?
• Would you rather a night time or weekend shower?
• What kind of gifts would you most appreciate?
• Would you want boys there or would you want to make it an exclusively a goddess thing?
• What kind of gifts (material or spiritual) would you like to offer?
• Would you want to include a ritual experience?
• Do you feel you can have all the elements you most want in one shower or might it be best to have two — one for family and one for friends?

2. Ask for what you want. Be clear upfront. Even if someone else is throwing a shower for you, you can make requests, including the request not to have a “traditional shower.” You can even pick a theme. “Showers are more themed than they used to because brides and grooms are older and established and have the typical gifts,” says Sharon Naylor, bridal expert and author of many wedding books, including The Ultimate Bridal Shower Idea Book. “There is more focus on their hobbies or home décor. They are not themed around starting your first home. “

3. Bridal showers have gotten more exotic. Themes range from a “lingerie party” (where the bride gets only sexy sleepwear, under things and naughty toys), to a “romantic beauty shower” (where she is gifted with beauty products, Victorian-style romantic items and anything that inspires romance) to a “backyard barbeque and luau shower” for both the bride and groom (where you can roast a pig, play lots of goofy games and give the bride and groom a Hawaiian “lei” — and all the jokes that you can think of). Here are some fun spiritual themes to consider.

• Goddess gathering. Women gather with sacred intent to spiritually support you through this right of passage and maybe bring gifts of the goddesses from the world’s traditions or gifts fit for a goddess — such as elegant perfume bottles, gift certificates for massages, inspiring art work.

• Feng Shui Shower. Guests bring feng shui items for the home, such as wind chimes, crystals, golden icons, water fountain, bamboo flutes, plants, Chinese good luck symbols and coins, cash in a red envelope.

• Shower you with Wisdom. You receive gifts of wisdom and advice. The shower gifts can be anything you need and the wishing well is books, prayers, plaques with pithy sayings and quotes. The women go around a circle and offer you advice for married life or they write down their advice and it is placed in a special Wisdom Book.

• Wedding Memory and Keepsake shower. This is devoted to honoring your past and documenting your wedding experience and marriage. Guests bring keepsake gifts such as: beautiful photo albums; picture frames; memory boxes; disposable cameras (or they can chip in for a new camera); scrapbooking items; a frame for your wedding license and your vows; and even a “wedding time capsule” into which you can put a copy of your wedding invitation, a photo of you and your groom, a favor, dried flowers, etc. Someone also brings a retrospect of the bride in photos — usually mom — and one or more people share a story of how you went from shy child, to awkward teen, to the beautiful swan you have become.

• Special Cultural Custom’s Shower. Many cultures have there own version of women gathering to honor, celebrate and assist the bride through her rite of passage that can be adapted or included in some way in a wedding shower. For example, in Bali, the women folk take the bride to a river, help her remove her clothes, and let the clothes float down the river, says ritual expert Barbara Biziou. This is to symbolize releasing the old. Then they dress her in fresh new clothes.
