We’re busy. There definitely is something here for you!
The common thread with all of these is the emphasis towards “self care”. Self care is in the categories of preventative as well as curative care. The steps we take to our increased sense of well beingness holds the highest of payoffs! Be well and stay happy. With great respect and love.
Here are some of Lise’s favorite summertime self care tips:
Warm soak in magnesium flakes. 20-40 minute warm (not hot) soak in a tub with magnesium flakes will help restore your energy, can help decrease chronic pain, assists in rebalancing the minerals of the body… leaves your skin feeling soft…. after dabbing yourself dry, massage your favorite oil (sesame, coconut, almond…) all over your body and into your hair. Go to sleep! Rest well. Try it regularly, try it often!
If you are in need of the flakes- check with Lise. She has them available.
(If you are inclined to take a full body soak in natures warm mineral waters, do that! That’s the ultimate in goodnessyness!)
Drinking water is something we talk about often. It’s almost like a broken record for some of you. I hear you… blah blah blah blah. But do it! Water does a body good. Starting your day with a cup of warm water eases your system back into action. Makes way for the other “stuff” you are about to put into your body. Warm water, not tepid… think about it. Your body is approximately 98.6F, so taking anything in first thing in the morning that is cold or solid is a bit of a shocker to process. So warm the water and feel that enter your body. No resistance. Only acceptance.
Some of you have complained that you don’t like the taste of natures most basic liquid. Odd statement it seems. But you can dress it up with: lemon, cucumber, cardamom…..
These are just a couple of ideas as to how to invoke restful sleep at night and start your day off with the best possible outcome. Self care. Really simple. Give those two things a go! Report back and wait for more ideas another day.
Peace be with you, and all those around you. May you be happy, stay well, be safe and feel free.
With great respect and love
