Ways to Nourish Yourself


Today, I'm loving this list of ways to nourish yourself (by Emma of Graceful Balance).

  • Get adequate sleep and make it a priority to be well rested
  • Move your body: stretch it, tone it, and allow it to play
  • Eat foods that support wellness (Most of these grow in the ground)
  • Spend time daily being quiet
  • Connect with uplifting friends
  • Have fresh flowers in your home
  • Supplement your diet with the appropriate vitamins and herbs
  • Remember to be grateful
  • Stay hydrated
  • Play with a pet
  • Find reasons to laugh
  • Practice financial responsibility
  • Stay in the present moment
  • Read spiritual books
  • Get creative. Paint, sculpt, sew, build or draw.
  • Spend time in nature
  • Create rituals that support, soothe or heal
  • Learn to breathe deeply
  • Continue to learn
  • Know what you want
I would add to this list: make a pot of soup, practice yin yoga, bake a loaf of whole grain bread, write in a journal, and sip green tea.  How do you nourish yourself?
