Do you wish you were more of a morning person?
Developing a nurturing and inspiring self-care morning ritual for yourself might be just the trick!
In the peace and calm of the morning light it's the perfect time to begin your day self-care and positive intention.
Here is a simple morning ritual to help you start your day off right:
1. Drink a glass of room temperature water.
To help you remember this step, leave a full glass of water on your nightstand overnight so it's ready for you first thing when you wake up. You can even charge it with crystals and positive affirmations.
2. Use aromatherapy to energize your mind and senses.
Our January Sacred Self-Care Box includes this Divine Beauty Serum from Sahara Rose which combines the heavenly aromas of rosemary, cedarwood, chamomile, bergamot, clove & geranium essential oils.
Practice daily self-worship by applying this soothing blend of plant oils and extracts onto your skin, hair and nails.
3. Select a stone from your crystal collection that’s calling you.
Look up the energetic qualities for resonant insights.
Do you have this stone yet? The January Sacred Self-Care Box also includes a pink opal stone that fosters a sense of emotional balance and a calm, centered focus.
4. Take 5-10 deep breaths to center yourself.
5. Shuffle and then intuitively pull a card from our 55 card Sacred Self-Care Rituals Oracle Deck
Discover a self-care activity that you can do at any point in the day to feel nurtured and empowered.
On days when you just can’t seem to fit in another self-care adventure, take a moment to grab your calendar or planner and schedule this activity in to your week or month ahead!
Whether you follow the steps above or create your own self-care morning ritual, sitting down for 5 minutes to reflect on the quality of your energy and to tune into your needs is a powerful self-care practice on it's own.
In our January Sacred Self-Care Box you'll also find this Self-Care Journal from Insight Editions that you can use to track how your daily activities affect your mind, body and spirit. Carry it with you and fill it out in real time or reflect back on your day before bed.
