Om Collective Founder, Emily Plauche, shares a few tips on how she is giving herself love and care this month.
Winter can be tough and if I don’t take good care of myself I can end up a wreck - depressed, low energy, and restless, all at the same time, and with dry scaly skin on top of that...
Kind of sounds like a dragon in exile! 🐲
I’ve built up an arsenal of Winter self-love tools to get me through and help to keep me feeling balanced. Here are a few of them:
😴 Extra Sleep
🌀 Slower, meditative yoga practices like Somatic and Kundalini
🛁 Hot baths - connecting to the element of water and letting stressful thoughts flow out
🍵 Cacao from @peace_love_cacao_
For grounding & heart opening
🥘 Nourishing chicken soup
💚 Lots of cooked veggies
🦋 CBD tincture & salve from Clayton View Farm @harfordhemp (Maryland grown hemp!)
📚 Lots of Soul nourishing books to read! Right now I have The Prophet by Khalil Gabran, God & Sex: Now We Get Both by Mark Whitwell, and The Magpie Art by @paulweinfield on my nightstand.
The only person who knows what is best for you, is you.
Reclaim what has always been your birthright — feeling good.
I cast the brush aside
from here on
I’ll speak to the moon
face to face
