We often think of nourishment in terms of what we eat. In my definition, nourishment goes far further. ‘Nourish’ means attending to your unique needs and doing what makes you feel soothed, enlivened and at ease.

As you nourish, you give your body, mind and soul the care and input they need to thrive. You engage your parasympathetic nervous system so the body can repair and find calm. You give your whole being a strong message: “You deserve to be nourished. You deserve to be cared for. You deserve to be the priority.”

Nourishment is not tokenism: It is not taking a bubble bath and then going back to a work situation that is making you miserable. Nourishment is founded on deep self-compassion and a firm, fierce conviction that your health and wellbeing matter. That you have intrinsic value.

Let’s look at the different ways you can nourish your body, mind and soul.

“Nourishment is taking exquisite care of yourself.” Mary Pritchard
