10 Ways to Live Your Beloved All Year Long

1. Morning ritual

Before you get out of bed, put your hand on your heart and say metta or a prayer for all Beloveds everywhere to be safe, healthy, easeful, and free.

Before checking emails and social, be in your body in any way that feels good for five minutes.

3. Commit to Vulnerability

Say yes to being more vulnerable in safe-enough settings. With your Beloveds, cultivate tenderness and lean into wherever shame may surface.
