Phew! Yesterday was an INTENSE day for a lot of people. I felt the intensity from the moment I first woke up. And, I have a Fitbit, so I also track my sleep and normally I have close to 4 hours of deep sleep and I had half that. There’s so much intensity in the human experience right now it’s important that we take good care of ourselves.
One thing I’ve found very helpful is salt water baths. Get a regular box of salt, I do prefer sea salt, you can usually get one for $2 at the grocery store – you don’t need a fancy kind. Pour at least half of it in your bath water and soak in it. The saltwater helps to reset your electrical system. You will feel better.
Another way to do it is get into the bath, pour some salt in your hand and rub it on your wet skin. It will be the perfect exfoliant and will give you an extra benefit.
I have found that it is so helpful to consider my self-care as part of my spiritual practice.
I take good care of my hands, my feet, my skin, and that nurturing is part of my spiritual practice of self-care.
For an extra dollar or two (not more than that) I can get the organic lotion.
I buy mostly organic shampoo, lotion and soap and it doesn’t cost me much more than regular things – perhaps $20 in a year.
I’m worth it.
I’ve discovered that having a break from the business, sitting outside, listening to the birds, not being on my phone or computer, being with Mother Nature – that’s self-loving and a spiritual practice.
I have plants that give off lots of oxygen in the rooms I spend the most time in. And part of my spiritual practice is to connect with them, acknowledge them and appreciate them. They love it and anyone can tell because they’re so vibrant.
Taking time to really look at the trees, the sky, the people in our life, the food that we’re eating give us an opportunity to take in the Beauty that life is offering us ALL the time.
I remember hearing Dr. David Hawkins sharing that exposing little children to Beauty was one of the most nourishing things we can do for them. Well, the same is true for adults.
When people don’t love themselves they can fall into ruts of living in a deprived state.
Even people with very few resources can be nourished and uplifted with Beauty. Look around yourself, do you live in a deprived way? Is your world warm and inviting? Is it welcoming to people and Spirit?
What are some of the ways you self-care and self-nourish that are part of your daily spiritual practice? Please share in the comments below!
