Take a second to reflect, embrace, and learn from the person staring back at you.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“Mirror, mirror on the wall… We always thought that was a part of some fairytale, but I really believe in speaking to yourself in the mirror. It’s so powerful to see yourself, just you and yourself, connected, eye to eye, heart to heart! Just looking and choosing to love yourself as you are is such a superpower!!” — Alicia Keys
Mirrors are seen as portals and valuable tools of magic, power, and beauty. It’s no wonder that looking into them can be an intimidating and intimate practice. But learning to see ourselves as we are and for who we are is a sure-fire way to feel empowered.
By standing in front of a mirror and embracing (rather than critiquing) our reflection helps us to retain some of that magic, power, and beauty for ourselves.
A quick tip to get started? Release the pressure to love every little thing you see, but thank your body for everything it does for you. Whether it gets you to your morning brew or brought a life into this world, your body is ah-ma-zing and deserves all the praise — especially from you.
