When last did you check in with yourself?
We aren’t talking about making sure you had a meal or used the bathroom (although these are all very important of course!), but rather, we are referring to actually checking in with your mind, body and spirit?
In today’s busy world we never seem to fully relax. Even “relaxation time” is interrupted with thoughts of our to-do-list and the next thing we need to get to. This means we never fully shut off unless we are sleeping, but chances are that even your sleep is affected, are we right?
This self-neglect leads to constant fatigue and anxiety, even depression, as we try to constantly keep up with everything, forgetting that we are only human after all.
A steady evening ritual can help you to release stress from your day and fully ground yourself in the present. It’s an excellent way to reconnect with yourself again and start to tap into your body’s natural intuition so you can start giving yourself what you need regularly, rather than waiting for burnout to occur.
Why we especially love an evening practice is that it allows you to wind down before bed, meaning that you can immerse yourself in your ritual without having to do anything else after except drift off to dreamland.
Here are just 3 daily practices that can ultimately transform your entire life, as the small things you do daily truly do add up and make a huge impact.
There’s nothing better than movement for releasing stagnant energy and getting your blood flowing and you feeling more energized and motivated.
Many people immediately dismiss this, as they think that movement means high-intensity exercises or long sweat sessions at the gym.
However, we adore yoga for stretching everything out and grounding back into our body, especially if our energy is feeling quite frazzled and frantic.
The great thing about yoga is that you can opt for something super gentle or more intense depending on how you are feeling. Yoga is all about listening to your body after all.
Here’s a lovely flow that will help you wind down beautifully at the end of the day.
Pssst…we have a secret… come a little closer…
We have a brand new Rose Oil serum that we cannot wait for you to get your hands on! This serum has become part of our evening ritual, because not only is it wonderfully nourishing and hydrating, but Rose is known for its wonderful mood-lifting properties.
We will let you know as soon as it’s ready for you, but in the meantime you can enjoy the perks of Rose with our wonderful rose water. Travel size means you get to keep this one in your purse and carry the benefits of your evening ritual right into the next day with you.
We’re not sure if you are aware, but there is a whole other side to tiktok called booktok and we are obsessed.
Even if you don’t love reading, it’s hard not to get sucked into the reviews and reactions that people share and maybe, just maybe, you may be tempted to try one for yourself.
Screens are a top reason for anxiety and poor sleep so switching your screen time for a comforting and addicting read may just make all the difference.
Good sleep makes everything better so check out this list of the most popular books right now and see if one calls your name.
We hope we have managed to inspire you to take better care of yourself. You can’t focus on tasks and other people when you aren’t filling your own cup first, so don’t you dare feel guilty!
Let us know if you try this ritual for yourself or let us know some of your favorite ways to unwind at the end of the day!
