My favorite ritual alone is...

"If I have an evening home alone it usually involves vinyl, palo santo, and a face mask.

I love picking out a record (been a lot of Bowie lately.. and always, who am I kidding) and dancing around my room while the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask works its magic.

I use the high vibe I've created to cleanse my space by lighting some palo santo to smudge the door frames, window sills and minerals in it's smoke."

At A Wild Dove, we are so inspired by rituals, that we’ve asked some of our favorite mamas to share their smallest, most celebrated acts that help them feel their best.

My first ritual of the morning is...

"I kiss my man and then we debate over whose turn it is to make coffee. If it’s mine, I make French press with an organic coffee from the exquisitely delicious Canyon Coffee out of California. As I’m the ultimate multi-tasker, I unpack the dishwasher while the kettle is boiling (yes, the mundane things) and then I take probiotics by Klaire Labs with either rose or chlorophyll water. My man I and then drink coffee in bed and chat for about 30 minutes before we start the morning."

My last ritual of the day...

"is to give my kids an aromatherapy foot massage post our night time yoga routine. I go to sleep with the kids and so the ritual not only soothes them, it preps me for sleep as well. My favorite is lavender or I sometimes use a blend of lavender, bergamot, and clary sage."

My last ritual of the day is...

"I cleanse my face then use the most incredible moisturizer by Augustinus Bader. With five days of using this cream, my skin regained its glow and the stress-induced breakouts were gone! It’s a stem cell treatment that really works.  Oh, and I brush my teeth."

My last ritual of the day is...

"A Rose Quartz treatment. I went on a road trip through the Badlands in South Dakota last summer and brought home a large hunk of rose quartz. It works with the heart chakra and ends my day day with some self love and leads me into more peaceful dreams. I lay in bed with the stone over my heart for 20 minutes."

My favorite ritual alone is...

"I have to say it’s a tie between journaling and meditation. I love journaling because it gets all my thoughts about work, life, myself..whatever it may be, down on paper and OUT of my head! Sometimes what I write doesn’t even completely make sense to me if I go back and read it, but that’s not really the point of it. I just feel better after I journal because I know all those thoughts are somewhere.

Meditation just really grounds me. It’s that time that I set aside to really focus on my inner calm and serenity. As a mother, wife, friend and business owner (amongst other things), I’ve got a lot on my metaphorical plate and sometimes it’s a challenge to prioritize. Meditation is my chance to just stop, breathe, and clear my head for the day to come."

My first ritual of the morning is...

"I wake up and spend a half hour reading through the beauty news of the day, articles I bookmarked, and emails I may have gotten in the middle of the night. 
 
Beauty wise, my morning ritual is dry brushing my whole body before getting into the shower. It's invigorating and makes my skin so soft! "

My favorite ritual with my children is...

"reading books in the morning. I love that moment before the TV goes on and before the whole morning routine goes full tilt. I've started reading books to my girls then. It's one of my favorite times of the day."

My favorite ritual alone is...

"something my friend Sarah taught me...the weekend genius of rolling out of bed and into our neighborhood deli without changing out of her pajamas. So on Sundays I'll fetch a cortado, pretzel croissant with raspberry jam (quite possibly the best sweet salty combo on earth) and the New York Times. It's my official pjs, glasses, no make-up, dirty hair dial it down time. Sometimes sitting at our table by the window overlooking the street. Sometimes on the couch. Sometimes in the park near our apartment."

My last ritual of the day is...

"I love to nourish my skin applying one of my favorite Leahlani face masks before I go to bed. I usually read for 20-30 minutes and sip on roasted dandelion tea. A 5-minute reflection and meditation right before I go to sleep always helps me to wind down."

My first ritual of the morning is...

"I ALWAYS wake up before the rest of my family to get my day started.  I need that time to myself to organize my thoughts and to get ready for the day ahead.  Mornings either consist of organizing and working OR heading out for a seriously early workout while everyone is still asleep at about 5:15 AM. Being outside in NYC at this hour is honestly one of my favorite things in the world. But, prior to either, I make my warm lemon water before I even change my clothes. I boil water, squeeze the juice of 1/2 of a lemon into a large mug, add a dash of cayenne pepper and during allergy season (currently) I add a dropper full of Nettle Leaf. If I’m working at home I’ll drink it at my kitchen table while typing away in silence or I’ll put it in a Swell bottle (currently obsessed with the new wide mouth version) and I’ll take it to go.  Sometimes I’ll have two mugs but often I’ll change to black coffee post kid wake up or post workout. I’ve been known to travel with my own lemons too!"

My first ritual of the morning is...

"the breath of fire followed by jade rolling. Breath of fire is a Kundalini type of breathing with equal emphasis on the inhale and exhale.  It is said if you master the breath of fire it is the key to higher consciousness and while I have yet to experience that, I feel this type of breathing helps purify my body and energizes me in a very positive way, it is also said to stimulate the solar plexus to generate heat and release natural energy.  After that, I enjoy the calming ritual of jade rolling with my Jade Facial Massage Roller.  The jade is nice and cool on my skin and it helps give my face (and neck and under eyes) a great lymphatic massage.  Most of my day is work related, so I love taking time in the morning to just focus on me."

My first ritual of the morning is...

"sitting with tea. I fill my kettle with fresh water, whispering words of love and gratitude into it. I then open a tin from Global Tea Hut ("Spirit" a shou puerh tea) and inhale the scent of the leaves.

I sit on a meditation cushion and sheepskin from WMN Space and create a chaxi (tea stage) with a slab of petrified wood, a stone, and a flower.

I steep the tea leaves in a handmade pot from Peter Kuo and serve myself several bowls in silence.

This morning practice centers me for the day and leaves me feeling calm, awake and connected."

My favorite ritual alone is...

"taking a bath. I am only able to find time to take a luxurious bath 1-2 times a week but it is the ultimate form of self care for me. I sage my bathroom and dry brush my skin to release some toxins and help with blood circulation. I then put Dr Singha's Mustard bath into a warm tub. I light a candle, I am obsessed with from the 1 Hotels which smells divine and grab a book to read or sometimes meditate while I soak for 20 min. I then immediately take a 5 min cold shower after emerging from the tub and wrap myself in a robe and hop in bed. It is so indulgent but I love this ritual more than anything."

My favorite juice that I drink absolutely without fail every day is the Daily Detox from Juice Generation. I usually don’t eat breakfast and I have that in the morning. It’s great for my skin and when I am on my program and doing it every day, clients comment on my skin. Daily Detox has carrot for energy, cucumber for detoxing and for hydrating, apple, lemon and ginger. Green juices are automatically very depuffing, oxygenating and antioxidants so they help strengthen the skin, strengthen the capillary walls and they help hydrate from the inside out."
