Body-love rituals

Today, I would like to talk about some rituals you can do to reconnect with your body to establish a healthy relationship with yourself. A plant starts with the root just like you start with your body.

Follow right people on social media.

Whether it is in real life or on-screen, it is very important to surround yourself with the right people. Those, who spread love and joy and show the real deal starting from opinions ending with the looks.

Practice Breathwork

Breathing is something we do not only with our lungs but through our bodies. Nonetheless, how often do we notice our own breath? Research shows that a regular practice of controlled breathing can decrease the effects of stress on the body and increase both physical and mental health. Prāṇāyāma is the practice of breath control in yoga. It can be done during the yoga practice as well as on its own.

Gentle Touch

How often do you touch your body with love? How often, you run your fingers up and down your skin with gratitude? How often do you look in the mirror and admire your beautiful skin? Even your stretch marks (if you have them), look like ocean waves or tiger’s stripes, they are so beautiful. Touch your body, there nothing more loving than this.

Spend time in nature.

Go for a walk alone, soak in the sun, alone. Movement or relaxing in nature creates a very strong connection with your body.

Mindful movements.

Do a workout, ride a bike, do yoga, your options are limitless. Whatever workout you choose,
try doing it without music or anything else. Just you and your body. Feel its strength, feel every movement of it, and notice how strong you already are and how strong you can get.

There you have it, five, simple, but super powerful rituals to give your body some love.
