Daily Rituals to Keep You Healthy & Inspired
In this busy life, it is so important to keep a watchful eye on our To-Do list. Yes, it is important to make sure we are checking the boxes of the tasks that keep our lives running smoothly, but the tasks we often forget are the ones that keep our health & wellness on the agenda. Fortunately this doesn't have to take a lot of time or even that much effort. It just requires your commitment to yourself and to your self-care. I'm talking about the kind that keeps you aligned not only to your center, but to the health and well-being of the world around you too. We've found the basics are always the best place to start, but in no particular order: 1) Get Inspired/Nourished, 2)Get Focused, 3)Get Moving!
Keep it simple if you can. Pick one thing that contributes to your daily wellness, and do it EVERY single day. Since you're only choosing one to start you might as well make the most out of it! We recommend a Daily Nourishing Tea because it checks a few boxes without any extra effort. Daily ritual, check! Mindfulness and presence, check! A dose of vitamins and minerals, check! Stop by and we will happily make up something custom for you or you can try the following recipe:
- 2P Oat straw
- 1P Nettle
- 1P Hawthorn Leaf & Berry
- 1/2P Alfalfa
- 1/2P Ashwaganda
- 1/4P Cinnamon
- 1/4P Rose
- Put your tea blend in a mason jar or French Press, pour boiling water over the top, let it steep at least 20 minutes. You can also brew it right before bed and it is ready to go in the morning!
Go ahead and make a commitment and set a reminder on your phone to make your tea at the same time everyday. When making the tea take a few deep breaths and let yourself take a mental break. This is a great time to remind yourself of your health and wellness intentions (mind, body & soul). And then when your tea is ready offer some gratitude and drink up all the blessings you just created inside that cup.
Not the tea drinking type? That's totally fine how about picking your favorite essential oil and taking 30 seconds three times a day to take a nice deep breath. Better yet, do this before or after you move your body vigorously for 5 minutes (think a walk or living room dance party). Or maybe you need to spend 5 minutes every day writing, painting, dreaming, reading, that works too. The whole point is that it is better to keep yourself on the agenda a little bit every day than wait for the right moment. Don't overwhelm yourself thinking that there is only one way to get to where you are going. If your goal is to meditate acknowledge yourself for getting started with 5 minutes, instead of judging yourself for not doing 20 minutes.
By the way that doesn't mean you shouldn't try for 20 minutes if that's your gaol. Instead it's a loving reminder that you gotta start somewhere on your way to 20, and hopefully that way there is full of patience, perseverance, and compassion.
