2. Take 10 minutes a day and  give yourself a body massage: just stroke over your head, shoulders, arms, body, legs, feet. This is a tradition that comes from Ayurveda (Indian Healing Science) and is called Abyanga. It is very healthy for the body but also good to empower yourself as by massaging you are giving attention and love to yourself and your body. So often we want to change something about ourselve: gain or lose weight, longer or shorter legs whatever. Through doing this we start to relate and accept our physical bodies more. And loving yourself in this manner is highly empowering!
