I want to share with you an exercise I’ve recently been doing every morning that helps me love my body and connect to her more deeply.
-When you wake up, stand in front of the mirror in your underwear, or birthday suite.
-Put your hands on your body in some way – I usually rub my belly, stretch my arms overhead and touch my hands together, or sway my hips a little.
-Instead of picking yourself apart (which may be your natural inclination), just observe your body like a work of art, look for the details and intricacies.
Since I’ve been doing this everyday for quite a while, I notice things like how the shape and feel of my belly changes with my cycle and the tone of my skin changes with the seasons. I’ll notice a new freckle or how my muscles are changing shape or taking form.
Get to know your real self.
Once you get comfortable doing this practice, you can take it a step further by finding something new to admire on your body everyday. Even if it’s a small space like your collarbone, the space just above your belly button, your ankle.
All of it matters.
All of it is yours.
All of it is home.
Never ask permission to express your soul’s desire.
Exploding with love and gratitude,
😉 Xoxo, Amber
