My first ritual of the day is...

"I generally wake at 7:30am and have a litre of water followed by coffee with coconut milk. We have a Ratio automated pour over machine which makes incredible coffee. I then sit outside on our deck and listen to the ocean for about 20 minutes before I begin my day at 8. "


My favorite ritual alone is...

"Listening to music and riding my bike down the beach path to Ado in Venice and treating myself to a glass of wine and pasta. "

My favorite ritual to destress is...

"To get a massage at home, leave the windows open, and listen to music. I generally don’t watch television, but if there is a good series available I will watch that and eat coconut ice cream with chocolate chip cookies instead. Both equally relaxing. "


My last ritual of the evening is...

"Before I sleep, I like to have a cup of Tulsi Rose tea with Moon Juice Sleep Dust while I read in bed. I am currently reading Hillbilly Elegy."

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 mamas 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 women to share their smallest, most celebrated acts that help them feel their best.
