A Conscious Spring Afternoon
I've been in full swing with clients these last few weeks and after I wrap for the day, I have to do some deep decompressing and coming back into my body. A spring afternoon has looked like this.
ALLOW • all of your thoughts to surrender, all of your stress to surrender into the ground, and let your heart feel. Anything that is coming up. Don't attach to a thought, just feel until you have let it go. Even if it's uncomfortable, gently lean into it. Then I'm refreshed and present for the rest of the evening.

SUPPORTED • Launches April 16th
I've picked up a few habits as I work to develop routine and clear out anything unnecessary from my daily do's. A spring afternoon looks something like this.
DRINK • I gave up coffee over a month ago (shocker to anyone who knows me well), and have been super turned on to Four Sigmatic Lion's Mane. I either drink it stirred into warm water, or I mix it with matcha and collagen if I need an extra pick-me-up.
DROP • some orange essence into my glass of water. Only a little or it can give you a headache.
BURN • super obsessed with energizing incense lately. I burn it by my desk while I work when I hit a slump in the afternoon. My go-to right now is Bodha Refresh.
LISTEN • depends on what I'm working on. Most often, I'll zone out to a playlist I'm digging on Spotify. Really into those slow jams lately. Or I'll plug into a podcast - on an Almost 30 binge right now.
READ • indulging in a book in bed is my favorite slow afternoon. I've been cycling a through a few, but always come back to anything Thich Nhat Hanh.
DO • stroll. Nothing like an afternoon stroll. Sometimes I choose a busy neighborhood and zone out people watching and window shopping; sometimes I opt for a quiet stretch of beach. Whatever you're craving, go for it.
ALLOW • When I'm having writers block or an energy slump mid-afternoon, I'll allow myself a few moments to sit, regroup and empty my mind. Allowing myself moments of quiet in the middle of a busy day has been the best cure.
RELAX • sinking into a bunch of pillows and lounging in this robe.
