3. Take a Yoga Class
Clear your mind, ground yourself in the moment and, most importantly, sweat it out! Try a new yoga studio around your area or explore a new pose you’ve always been wanting to try. Your body will thank you for re-centering it back to balance.
4. Snuggle Up and Read a Book
Curl up in your favorite spot in the house, make a cup of tea, and light a candle. Be a bookworm for a day, giving yourself an hour or even an entire evening to invest yourself in the moment, without any distractions.
5. Go For a Walk
Get outside for a breath of fresh air! Explore a new hiking trail or take your furry friend to the park. Spend time doing what feels good for you physically and mentally by checking back in with yourself while exploring what the beautiful outdoors has to offer.
