Vitality is restored when you carve out time for yourself. Being in nature feeds your soul and helps you gain a fresh perspective on life. Simply by attuning to the natural world you’ll feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
“We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise, we harden.” ~ Goethe
Rejuvenate means to make youthful. Stress and fatigue melts away when you take the time to recharge. Self-care allows you to easily return to your day-to-day responsibilities feeling lighter, healthier and happier. Create rejuvenation rituals to stay young and vital.
You have an inner well that must be filled up daily with peace, joy, love and gratitude to feel emotionally rejuvenated. Peace comes in quiet moments of stillness. Joy arises from being true to yourself. Love flows from your natural state of kindness. Gratitude comes from appreciating yourself and others.
Spending time in the mountains or by the sea is a natural rejuvenator. Breathe fresh air into your lungs and hold it for a few seconds. As you exhale slowly imagine filling your whole body with revitalizing oxygen. Repeat several times and notice how you instantly feel better. Your body naturally thrives on oxygen.
Cooling foods like cucumber and watermelon are especially hydrating for your body. Combine them with arugula, chopped walnuts, and your favorite organic vinaigrette for a rejuvenating salad. You can also mix pomegranate juice with sparkling water for a refreshing drink that cools and hydrates your body.
Taking a nap can be a great rejuvenator. Fifteen minutes of deep relaxation is equivalent to a three-hour nap and will restore your body and mind to their natural state of balance. Systematically tighten and then relax all the major muscles in your body as you breathe deeply to release stored tension. This calms your nervous system, turns off the flight or fight response, and allows you to naturally let go of stress and feel more at ease.
Sweet potatoes have been credited with rejuvenating properties. If you are deficient in certain vitamins and minerals you could experience a sense of rejuvenation after eating sweet potatoes. Include a variety of organic plant-based whole foods in your diet to make sure you're getting the quality nutrients your body deserves.
Practicing yoga is like giving your body an internal massage and your mind a vacation. I created Satori Yoga over thirty years ago as a way to remove the blocks of stress, worry, fear, and doubt and increase the flow of vital energy. This 75-minute practice rejuvenates your body, mind, heart and spirit. To purchase the DVD click here: SATORI YOGA DVD. For the digital version go here: SATORI YOGA
