Self Soothe with a Hand Massage
How are your hands today?
If your hands have pain or tenderness be sure to go slowly and gently to explore what YOUR hands want and see if this feels supportive.
If you're not used to thinking about your hands much this activity might surprise you as to how good it feels! :)
I find this to be very calming and supportive if I'm in a stressful situation or even just when I'm feeling overstimulated.
Did you give it a try? How did it feel? I invite you to share in the comments!
What feels good to one person might be irritating to another.
Honoring what your body loves helps you build trust with it.
