What is your body telling you right now? How grounded do you feel? Where are you carrying your stress?

Wake up your senses

  • Smell – Turn on the fragrance by enjoying lotions or candles that are fragrant.

  • Touch – Turn on physical touch by exercising, enjoying a massage, or hitting the dance floor.

  • See – Wake up to the beauty around your by enjoying a nature walk or a beautiful sunset.
