Ever wondered how you can activate your sensuality? Being in touch with your sensual side can help you fall in love with yourself, appreciate yourself more, and be more in tune with what gives you pleasure. When you activate your sensuality, you promote self-love, which leads to being kinder to yourself.
How to activate your sensuality:
- Give your body some love. Nourish it with good food, do some stretches (especially if you’ve been sitting all day), put on lotion or take an indulgent bath, write down all the things your body enables you to do.
- Adorn yourself. Whether it’s a favorite dress, something sexy, or some beautiful jewelry, adorning yourself helps promote self-love and can make you feel beautiful.
- Meditate or immerse yourself in nature. If you live in a city, the constant noise and pollution can be overwhelming. Find a park nearby or sit in your garden (if you have one) and take some time to appreciate the natural things around you, including hummingbirds, fragrant flowers, and the trees swaying in the breeze.
- Create a self-love ritual. This can be anything that makes you feel a little more appreciative of yourself and your abilities. Maybe you’re an amazing cook and self-love involves making a delicious, thoughtful meal for yourself. Maybe you like to crochet or paint, but never give yourself time to indulge, and it would promote self-love if you did so. Maybe for you self-love involves doing your full skincare routine, taking a bath, or putting on makeup and fixing your hair. Whatever you do, make sure it inspires you.
- Be mindful. Mindfulness involves making an effort to stay in the moment. Sometimes we’re either dwelling on the past or thinking ahead to the future, but being fully present and mindful of your current state can be liberating. When your mind is not racing ahead or looking back to the past, you can feel more peaceful and content.
