For this week’s optimizing yourself exercise, instead of giving into the demands of daily life and feeling disconnected to my body, I took time to connect with my body.
I awakened my olfactory sense with scented creams, soaps, perfume, and bubble bath.
I wore soft, fleecy clothing against my skin.
I connected to my life force by breathing, exercising and sweating – pumping blood and oxygen through the cells of my body.
I drank a large, nutritious fruit and spinach smoothie each day – a healthy drink, and a handy small meal substitute.
I listened to calming music which soothed my ears.
Nurturing my body removed tension and stress, had positive benefits on my mind and health as well, and by the end of the week, I felt like I was in paradise 🙂
