Happy winter Solstice! It's the shortest day of the year on this side of the world.
As allot of us are taking some time off during the Holidays I thought I'd share some of my favorite things to do for downtime:
Meditation, Movement & Practice
I meditate & ground every day. Grounding is an exercise where we let go of energy that is not ours and fully relax into our own. It is a wonderful exercise that can be done in 5 min or in a longer version of 30 min. My favorite teacher for this is Kathryn Schiff. She offers a great list of free meditations.
Do you want more after this ? The Den Meditation is a wonderful online meditation school with lots of classes & playbacks starting at $ 49,99 a month.
For movement my favorite lady is Melissa Wood Health, if you don't follow her on instagram already she is a goodie. Her quick & easy to do work-out's and her life as a mom of two while keeping health as a main priority is inspiring. I love her app with new work-outs every day.
Relax & Listen
I love to take a long bath with epsom salt, light some candles & listen to a good podcast. Some of my favorites are:
- The Authentic Sex Podcast by Juliet Allen
- Offline, The podcast by Alison Rice
If you don't have a bath, I also love to just lay on the couch and listen to a podcast. It's nice to give your eyes a rest for once. Or I take a long walk while listening which is also very lovely.
A few of my favorite series on HBO or Ziggo right now:
- The White Lotus
- The Undoing
- Big Little Lies
- Sharp Object
I hope you find some enjoyment in these things I love & that you get to relax and be at peace with yourself. Because being with yourself is a wonderful place to be.
