When we’re completely focused on the present moment, rather than dwelling on the past or stressing about the future, our body chemistry shifts into a relaxed state. Schedule some time with yourself to do something you love. It’s as simple as that. Go to the beach, read a good book, get a pedicure. Through the course of the VowTo Program, women receive gift boxes filled with treats to pamper and empower themselves.
Do what your body loves to do. Instead of spending all those miserable hours in the gym doing things that you hate, think about what your body would love to do. Dancing? Hula-hooping? Rollerblading? Do more of that! Your body and your mind will thank you. Also, schedule some time with yourself to do something you love. Nurture the most important relationship in your life — the one you have with yourself. VowTo believes putting yourself first isn’t selfish.
We all hear that little voice in our heads sometimes. You know, the one that likes to criticize what we do, how we look, how we feel. The key is to recognize that negative voice, then turn it into a voice of kindness…both toward others and toward yourself. When you take care of yourself, you can better take care of those around you. In their program, VowTo provides women with weekly wisdom lessons, each exploring a different intention, or vow.
Always try to practice an attitude of gratitude. Every morning, make it a point to go over all the things you’re grateful for in your life. Making this a regular habit has been linked to better health, sounder sleep, less anxiety and a higher satisfaction with life. As part of VowTo’s 12-week EnRitualize Foundation Program, they offer a path to complete wellness by providing the guidance, tools, inspiration and support to nurture the mind, body & heart.
