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."
Whether a morning meditation or afternoon cup of tea, the rituals we practice serve us more than we realize. They are our life’s bookends, moments we rely on and enjoy. For women especially, these small ceremonies are what gets us through the day. 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.
