Embodiment : Use a towel to dry

When you dry off after a shower or bath, you might not think much about the process. But what if I told you that paying a little extra attention to the sensations of drying off could actually be good for your overall well-being?

One way to do this is to take your time when drying off and really feel the sensation of the towel against your skin. By focusing on the physical sensations of drying off and feeling your periphery, you might start to become more aware of your body and its needs.

Research has shown that increasing body awareness can have a positive impact on nervous system regulation. By paying attention to physical sensations, you might be better able to regulate your nervous system and manage stress.

So, the next time you dry off after a shower, take a moment to really feel the sensation of the towel against your skin. You might be surprised at how much more in tune with your body you feel, and the potential positive impact it could have on your overall well-being!

Here are some other benefits of creating a practice of drying with a crisp towel after your bath/shower or swim and bringing your awareness to your skin and boundary…..

  1. Increased body awareness: Focusing on physical sensations can help you become more attuned to your body and its needs. This increased awareness can help you make better decisions about how to care for your body.
  3. Improved relaxation: Taking the time to focus on physical sensations can be a form of mindfulness meditation, which has been shown to reduce stress and improve overall well-being.
  4. Enhanced body image: By focusing on your physical sensations and accepting your body as it is, you may develop a more positive body image and greater self-confidence.
  5. Improved sensory integration: Sensory integration is the process by which the brain integrates information from different senses to create a cohesive perception of the world around us. Focusing on physical sensations can help improve sensory integration, which can lead to better coordination and overall physical function.
