4 EASY Ways to Roll your way to more SELF-LOVE:
1. Do it yourself -Relying on others for that full body massage. – Unless you are an athlete or get unlimited massages, most of us just cant afford the time or money to get frequent massages. Or we think we are going to get our spouse or partner to give us a foot rub or shoulder massage, usually it doesn’t happen or it turns into a torture session which does not build the best chemistry for a romantic evening. So quit complaining and roll out those kinks yourself, you will feel empowered and proactive which builds good self-love.
2. Honor your body. Your body is a Temple so respect it. Loving yourself makes you a healthier, kinder, happier and a more positive person. Taking care of your health and happiness first leaves your heart open to caring for others. Having respect for yourself leads you to have respect for others.
2. Roll with a group! There is power in numbers. Having a training partner or have someone who you can foam roll at home like your spouse or children, makes it fun, social and you become accountable to each other. It shows the people around you that you care about yourself and choose to spend time with similar people who have great self-love.
4. OWN up to your pain! Take responsibility for your PAIN- Some people often blame others for their lack of health, emotional pain that can manifest as physical pain and dysfunction. If that sounds familiar, alot of forgiveness and gratitude is needed to stay in the present moment and shedding the ego and look inside at become more loving toward yourself, one day at a time. Take those baby steps like Foam rolling out the kinks because its a therapeutic way you can help your body heal from your inner/outer scars.
