Luckily, this is easy to do -- just be in your body and notice what's going on. Here, I'll even give you a starting point:
A friend of mine was on medication that dulled of his sense of touch. (A "possible side effect" courtesy of our corporate overlords at Big Pharma.) When he went off the medication, his sense of touch returned and he was struck anew with the wonder of it. Even the experience of taking a shower, he said, was almost overwhelming with the sensations of it all.
The next time I took a shower, I pretended that my sense of touch had just returned and paid ultra-close attention to the tactile sensations of the shower -- the warmth of the water, the individual jets of water hitting me, the smooth soap gliding across my skin. And oh...my...God. I mean, we all know that showers are nice and all, but how often do we notice how completely fucking amazing they are? (And I don't think I need to point out how this close attention to sensory pleasures has a similar super-charging effect on sex.)
So my wish for you this Tuesday, dear reader, is a shower of your own that is completely fucking amazing.
