Everyday energy self care is critical to health and wellness. This is true on an energetic level, just as it is on a physical level.
We all have our daily rituals and regimens to take care of our physical bodies: bathing, brushing our teeth, taking our vitamins, exercising, etc. And we all know how important these things are.
methods of energetic "hygiene" don't have to be long, involved, or
esoteric. In fact they can be quite simple, easy, and pleasant to
integrate into your daily life. You undoubtedly already do some of them.
But however you do it, it's important to establish a conscious regimen of some sort to help clear and support your energy systems. This helps to build and maintain physical wellness, emotional wellness, and mental wellness as well. Centering yourself is one great foundational practice to learn.
