Imagine you have one day per week to yourself. You wake up and the first thing you do in the morning you go for a long walk. At work, you drink matcha and make sure you don't have any meetings that day. After you come home, you take a few minutes of rest, close your eyes and listen to the silence. Then, you head to the gym. You train hard and only think about how grateful you are to your body. At home, you pour yourself a bath, fill it with rose petals, eucalyptus leaves, and lavender oil. You apply a Flower and Spice Beautiful Masquerade mask on your face and enjoy the moment and scents.
After a bath, it's time to read some pages of a good book and you realize how perfectly happy you are with yourself.
A day per week like this is something we would all cherish.
But what we noticed is the feeling of pampering after a good workout. That's why we took a closer look at a little different exercise, and we picked the ones that honor the female body and encourages you to feel good about it.
