As we collectively experience a growing health crisis, now more than ever we must prioritize finding a sense of calm. With stress as one of the greatest proponents of a depressed immune system, seeking inner peace is vital. This is not woo-woo, this is science. Here are some ideas to harness a sense of internal tranquility:
+ 🧘♀️ meditation (unsure where to start? we love @Headspace + @Calm apps)
+📲 digital detoxification (even a couple hours on airplane mode will give your mind and body space from those incessant notifications that innately trigger our nervous systems)
+ 💆 therapy (call upon your healers, in their many forms from reiki to sound healing to fitness gurus, to acupuncturists etc)
+ 🛀 a hot bath (feel the weightlessness of your body, create stillness in your mind)
+ 🎥 good old fashioned movie binging (nothing wrong with a great escape...in your living room)
+ 😴 sleep sleep sleep (in REM cycle, is when your tissues regenerate on a cellular level, in short, this gives your vital organs a chance to get stronger)
+ 🙏🏽 practice gratitude (that you have a place to hunker down, that you have health insurance, that you are informed, that you are loved)
Long story short, your body does a better job fighting off illness and healing wounds when it’s not under stress.
Give yourself permission to just be...and WASH YOUR HANDS!
much love 💚
