Today, I choose to nurture my physical and emotional needs with gentle movement and meditation, connect with nature and eat nutritious foods that will support my wellbeing. Today I choose compassion for other people to reduce suffering (mine and theirs).
Movement can be healing, or it can be stressful. When you have more than enough stress in your life without adding vigorous exercise, invite your movement practice to support your energy and restore your state of peace. Use these strategies to develop a self-healing, restorative movement practice to support you for the rest of your life.
Your mind does what it thinks you want it to do based on your words, thoughts and beliefs about yourself. You have the power to choose positive words, think thoughts of healing, and believe that you are worthy of the life you desire. It takes practice to make positive affirmations part of your identity. How can you make your positive affirmations stick?
