I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling emotionally raw, depleted, and exhausted tonight. I need some extra nourishing, extra pampering, extra restorative self care tonight.

Here’s what I’ll be doing. I hope this helps you too. And if you have other ideas, please share so I can try them 🙂

  1. I’m creating some quiet time. I’m honoring my inner call to stay in, be quiet, rest.
  2. I’m going to take a mineral salt, essential oil scented bath complete with candles and soothing music.
  3. I’ll apply essential oil-scented organic body oil to my pulse points.
  4. I’ll meditate. (I meditate daily, but I’ll do more)
  5. I’ll do a gentle heart-opening restorative yoga pose. (Photo and directions below)
  6. I’ll order in dinner and spend quiet time with close friends.

 

Supta Baddha Konasana:

Lie on your yoga mat or in your bed. Place a pillow or bolster under your knees and another under your head. Wiggle your shoulder blades down (or have someone tuck them for you). Cover yourself up with a blanket or your sheets/blanket if you’re in bed. Place a weighted pillow or small zafu on your belly and a folded towel or eye pillow over your eyes. Breathe slowly and deeply. Stay as long as you like. Only get up in your time. <3
