What my body is craving

3 Things your body is craving and intentional activities you can do to heal it today!

¨Take care of your body. Itś the only place you have to live.¨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀-Jim Rohn

Mindful Movement, is not the same as being busy. Move your body in intentional ways to help release pain and feel lighter.

1. Hip release:

Move your damn hips! Our hips store tension and past trauma. When we move & shake our hips we let all that go. Having low back pain? Sore glutes and legs? It’s all connected!

What we feel outside is a direct reflection of what is going on inside.

Move your hips and the muscles around them begin to soften.

We often get in our heads about how we look. Don’t think too much about it. Put on your favorite song and shake your hips side to side left and right. Shoot get on the ground if you can and shake that thang! Twerk it twirl it, whatever feels good! Don’t waste any time. Do it for 2 minutes today! You’ll notice a rapid release in your body and energy.. ⠀

Other easy activities for hip tension release:

-Light walking



Beginner friendly Yoga Pose for hips: Bridge pose

How to:

Lay on your back.

Place your arms by your sides, palms face down.

Stack your knees over your ankles.

Spread your knees hips width distance apart.


Press into your heels.

Lift your hips towards the sky.

Hold for 3-5 deep breaths.


Slowly lower your hips back down to the ground.

Connect your low back to the floor.

Repeat 3-5x

Spiritual/ Emotional connection: Sacral Chakra

The second chakra is connected to desire, pleasure, creativity, sexuality.

When we have tight hips and hold onto tension, we block the sacral chakra.

Examples of what is blocking the sacral chakra:

  1. Emotions that have been pushed aside. Things we bottled up in order to¨move on"or ¨deal with it later". And we never came back to it.

  2. Traumatic experiences that we never fully processed i.e loss, guilt, heart break. When we don´t give ourselves the proper grieving process our spirit needs, we store all that energy in our bodies.

This can affect our emotional connection to others, our sexual experience, self confidence, our creative expression and so much more!

We must create a safe space and give ourselves time to grieve, release, and restore love.

Try this affirmation for the sacral chakra:

If you are not comfortable saying this in front of others that is okay.

Find a quiet space in a room in your home where you have privacy.

hold your hands to your low belly and close your eyes.

Say to yourself 3 times:


Give yourself time to integrate, after your try the activities reflect on them afterwards.

These are some guided question:

What did I notice after the activity in my physical body?

How do I feel now compared to before the exercise?

Integration will tie it all together.


2. Hydration:

This is a personal goal of mine every week. Because I do it too ya’ll…get so wrapped up in what I am doing, hours go by and I’m not drinking adequate water. So let’s be hydration friends! Your skin, your hair, and your mood are all affected by your hydration levels. Pour it up!

Extremely dry or over oily skin can be caused by dehydration, your skin is not flushing what it needs to in order create healthy balanced skin cells.

Feeling drained and tired all the time can also be a result of not enough water.

Think about a plant when it is dried out and thirsty, what does it do?

It wilts, it shrivels.

Hydrate yourself consistently and watch your inner and outer garden flourish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What works best for me is a Large hydo-flask with a straw.

Now you might be reading this and thinking ¨I am not walking around with no sippy cup, im grown!¨. And I hear ya! James Clear said it best in ¨Atomic Habits¨,he says

"Once your pride is involved you’ll fight tooth and nail to maintain your habits."

Your fear of looking silly will prevent you from creating a new system that works for you your ego will fight to maintain the old habits that have not worked for you.

Now, the straw flask may not be your system, that´s simply an example!

The point is, find what works for you. And commit to it, after a while it will become a ritual no longer a goal, it´ll be a part of your lifestyle.

I don´t know about ya´ll but hydrated and healthy is my motto!

1 way to create a healthy lifestyle is a daily tracker;

A way to track your daily habits so you can create a successful routine.

Creating a lifestyle does not happen in a day or even in a week. It takes time, patience, and persistence.

Those daily habits will compound into ritual and become who you are.

You decide who you want to be and affirm it with your daily habits.

A person who doesn´t make healthy eating, hydration, mindful movement, and self love a daily priority is usually stressed, exhausted, feeling unworthy, and struggles with deep authentic connection with others.

So you choose.

Want to unleash your FULL potential? Feel alive and positive about life and your relationship with others?

3. Intimacy:

Intimacy is often confused with sex. But in actuality it is the connection with ourselves and others. It is the desire to be deeply known.

Intimacy takes vulnerability, and vulnerability takes courage. Be brave in loving you. -Phoenix Soul

Touch yourself! This does NOT have to be sexual. And also, it can be…we support all expression of self love.

However, there are other ways too. Dance is a beautiful way I get both stress release and intimacy.

Moving my hips and touching myself in the process helps me give my body what it is craving.

We are soul beings, and our bodies crave true intimacy and connection.

Let me tell you friends, we need SELF LOVE. So if you are someone that is only intimate when it involves others I’m speaking to YOU.

Our confidence, self worth, and self love is directly connected to the intimacy we have with our self.

So the more time and intention we put into our self intimacy the deeper capacity we have for others. We cannot give to others what we do not give to self.

Is this new, uncomfortable, or just feel wrong for you?

You may be subconsciously repressing shame around self intimacy and touch.

Ask yourself this:

When is the last time I had an intimacy date with myself? Just for the love of it ?(not just to let one off ).

When is the last time I touched, danced, hugged, and kissed myself whole-heatedly and unapologetically?

If the answer is not ¨Today¨ then this is for YOU!

Try this exercise TODAY:

Hug yourself tightly take in a deep breath and say 3x:

I receive love and affection with open arms, knowing that I am worthy of it. -Unknown


Our bodies are constantly telling us what it needs.

It is up to us to learn to listen and honor it.

This may be something completely new to you. And that´s okay. We all begin on our own timeline, it´s not a race. Your journey looks like no one else´s and that´s the beauty of you.

Try one of these today; maybe walk around the block one your lunch break to release your hips, dance in the mirror when you get home from work, drink more water today than yesterday, hug yourself and affirm that you are safe and worthy of love.

We cant put off our health for tomorrow, because tomorrow may or may not come.

Do it for you, do it for self love. Start today.

Muchas gracias a todos

Thank you for tuning in.

You are loved here,
