Ways to Practice Self Compassion and Appreciation

Give Yourself an Hour of Me-Time a Day

This could come in the form of a nap, sticking your nose in a good book, a walk around the neighborhood or even soaking in the tub with your favorite herbal blend. Chuck your phone away, put on your slippers, light a smudge wand to set the mood, kick back and disconnect.

 

Drink Water

Not only will this hydrate your body but it will also clear up your skin, give you more energy, and keep your metabolism in check.  It can also help to prevent heartburn, migraines, gastritis, ulcers, kidney stones, cardiovascular disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, backaches and osteoporosis. A little bit of water = a huge list of benefits. Pro Tip: Add a few drops of our Beauty Potion to your next glass, it'll clear your mind, and make any aches or pains fade away. 

 

Get Your Beauty Rest

You owe it to yourself. We as humans wanting to succeed, forget that small things like drinking water and getting enough sleep are incredibly important. It's like recharging your internal batteries. Take it from our customers and clients who lean on a warm cup of tea with Hemp + Sage Honey and a dose of our Beauty Potion to dream easy.

 

Fresh Air & Sunshine

Maybe you work in an office, at home, or even constantly out and about. Take a walk, or sit outside during lunch. Research shows that spending time in fresh air, surrounded by nature, increases energy in 90 percent of people.


Thirty Minutes of Exercise a Day

This goes beyond the physical appearance. Studies have shown that regular participation in aerobic exercise can decrease overall levels of tension, elevate and stabilize mood, improve sleep and improve self-esteem.  Pro Tip: After your walk, rub on a little bit of Hemp + Sage Balm.  It will help to relieve your post-workout body aches! Remember to appreciate your body for all that it can do.

 

Let Go of the Things You Can't Control

We aren't in control of what other people do or how the world is working at every moment. If something doesn't go as planned, it likely has nothing to do with you. Take a deep breath and just let it go because you do have control over this practice.

       

Try Something New

Are you familiar with crystals? Have you ever read your own tarot card? Created your own herbal blend? Try it! This practice helps us get to know ourselves better, stimulates creativity and helps us to overcome our fears.

                                                                                     

Create Balance

Work on building yourself a schedule. Do the same thing every day. Familiarize yourself with how much time you have in the day and then use it to keep yourself healthy and happy with consistency.     

 

Practice Abhyanga

There is no greater expression of self-love than lovingly anointing ourselves from head to toe with warm oil.  This ayurvedic practice, Abhyanga, restores the balance of the doshas and enhances well-being and longevity. We use our Beauty Potion inclusive of hemp which adds for an extra push of relief.  Learn more about this practice here.

 

Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

You are great as you. You don't need to be like anybody else. In due time you will get the recognition you deserve. Don't hold back. You are loved, and you are worthy.

 

Spend More Time with People Who Support You

Build a strong support system. The people you surround yourself with will help keep you afloat, and give you the much needed hugs and loves that sometimes it's hard to give ourselves. That's okay, that's what they're there for!

 

Appreciate the Small Moments

See the beauty of the world and let it take your breath away. Look for the sunrise or sunset. Recognize the trees and how the leaves are changing. There's magic all around us. Here is one of our favorite articles on how to appreciate the present moment and feel happier which expands on this concept
