You've likely been stressed out, overwhelmed, distracted, and feeling like life is uncertain these days of pandemic and disruption. It's time to give yourself permission to slow down for some gentle self-care. In this week's series, you're going to be nourishing your mind, body, and soul. In each episode, you're going to be guided with a different meditation technique each day especially customized for the kind of gentle self-care you've likely been putting off. Get ready to feel less depleted and more nourished!
Do one thing each day to give yourself some gentle self-care. 
Affirmation - "I nourish myself."
Breathing - Inhale your needs, exhale attachments
Mudra - Lotus - open up to something new in your life
Chakra - 1st - feel more grounded
