The 5-Minute Body Rejuvenation | Happiness Practice 05

Need to calm down and rejuvenate, but don’t have time for the spa, or even a long bath? Try this. This exercise was donated by Angela Privin, of Paleo Kitchen Lab.

The Rejuvenation:

Hot water is calming for the nervous system, but if you don’t have time to take a luxurious hot shower or bath you can get similar benefits, plus additional ones from a towel bath.
This exercise comes from Ayurveda, the ancient medical system of India. Ayurveda focuses on balancing the body with simple methods.
Soak a towel in hot water and begin to stroke your arms and legs with the hot towel.
As you move the towel in gentle strokes up and down your arms and legs, it will exfoliate the skin, sooth down the nervous system and increase your circulation.
Keep dipping the towel in the bowl of water to refresh the heating effect as needed. Stroke the belly, back, neck and any part of the body that is tense and needs soothing.
End the hot towel massage by spreading oil on the body. Natural oils like sesame, melted coconut or jojoba oil will seal in the calming effects, moisturize the skin and further help detoxify the body. In Ayurveda oil is used as a detoxifying agent.
For extra stress relief benefit, add a few drops of calming essential oil like lavender or geranium to the oil. For more of an uplifting, energizing effect add lemon or peppermint essential oil.
Rub the oil in long, meditative strokes, breathing deeply as you nurture yourself.
After doing this for just a few minutes you will feel relaxed, refreshed and grounded.
