1. Honor and Respect Your Body
Think of your body as a trusted, dear friend and teacher. Ask it for permission and guidance on what and when you eat, when you workout hard, when you recover... actively speak and listen to your body. If it is hard to hear the quiet guidance of your body, practice #2.
2. Conscious Breathwork & Meditation
Our life is loud and noisy and it is understandable that we miss out on the quiet guidance our higher self and body can offer us. Practicing conscious breathwork brings us into presences and will entrain our brain however we intentionally breathe. Box breaths, three part breathing, big exhales are all examples. Study this and practice this! Meditation will allow us to rewire our brain to slow down and notice the subtle energetic being of life where the higher insights live. Study this and practice this! There are no greater treasures to be found anywhere we can explore. Go inward.
3. Tight Inner Circle
4. Time in Nature
It is undeniable that nature has the power to heal. Similar to conscious breathwork and meditation, nature naturally (ha!) entrains our brain and body into a deeper, healing harmony. Bathe in nature!
5. Consistent Bed and Wake Times
Practically speaking, our body has a rhythm and we want to make it as easy as possible for our body to thrive with its natural rhythm. Going to bed and waking up at the same time each day with very few exceptions will reap huge benefits for your mental and physical health. It is worth the sacrifices, I promise!
