Humans need intimacy!
We live and thrive with connection to each other.
Yet, many of the current precautions are isolating us from this connection to help contain the novel coronavirus. It’s equally important for each of us to consciously be aware of what we need and to create a plan that keeps our bodies humming and healthy.
Our bodies make and utilize a number of hormones to keep us feeling good, better or best! Each body will require their own specific cocktail of touch, interaction and nourishment. These happy hormones are DOSE: dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins. There’s a lot of science behind how these interact. What I really want to share is some ideas for creating happiness and holding ourselves in the highest vibrational energy while the world navigates the coronavirus.
- Move your body! I love getting outside to run or walk. In fact, a friend of mine and I have planned to ride bikes or walk together outside when the weather allows during this time. There are super workouts and yoga videos on youtube and a couple of my faves are Yoga with Adriene and Qoya.
