One of my most favourite self care rituals is to soak in a warm bath.
Just to be able to float in silence & stillness. Allowing myself to become centred, without any distractions around me. Pure bliss!
The past few months has been like ships sailing in the night between my husband and I.
I've been in and out of conferences (which I totally love as Wellness and Nutrition is my passion) , however being away from my babies a lot and juggling too much has left me feeling a little anxious and fatigued. Having suffered from adrenal fatigue in the past I could see the signs a mile away! Its ok, this is not my first rodeo. I've got this.
In order to support my body through this chapter of overwhelm I have really stood back, listened to what my body is trying to tell me and nurtured me!
- Soaking in a bath with magnesium with a few drops of my favourite essential oils
- Reduce caffeine intake
- Increase water
- Drink a green smoothie daily
- Eat more plant based nourishing foods
- Moving my body more (even if its a light walk)
- Getting adequate rest
Most of us are in fact magnesium deficient, however unaware of it as we are so busy being busy. We may see little signs our body is needing something, but we just keep on pushing through the daily grind. This itself is a topic for another day.
The best way that you can provide your body with magnesium is topically. Either by soaking in a magnesium bath or applying magnesium oil topically onto your skin.
Benefits of magnesium:
- Support bone health
- Lower stress levels & anxiety
- Promote relaxation
_ Reduce muscle aches and pains
- improve circulation
I purchase my magnesium from the Source Bulk Foods:
I take my own glass jar in, to eliminate waste or you can get it mailed out to you.
Everyone needs to just stop and reset every now and then, so why not love on you with a little magnesium soak x
