Despite a world tempting us to armor up, true power lies in softening, allowing the energy within to flow gracefully, unencumbered. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable and exposed is brave, sexy, and seductive. Whether solo or partnered, Day 1 is a perfect day to practice slowing down and being more mindful in your daily rituals — in effect, surrendering. Simple moments, like paying attention to how the water touches your back in the shower, slowly applying lotion to your body, or savoring the flavors of your morning Beauty Matcha Latte in a place of stillness will encourage you to soften and be present.
Partnered: Share breathwork while sitting or lying close: Practice synchronized breathing to deepen the connection and intimacy between you and your partner. Look into each other’s eyes, as you sync up and let go of any worries and feel the energy of your partner as deeply as possible. Listening to a guided meditation together while holding hands or being intertwined is another way of softening into each other’s essence.
Solo: Mindful self-touch: Light a candle, turn on some sensual music, and take a bath or shower while exploring your own body with gentle and intentional touch, focusing on areas that bring comfort and pleasure.
Day 2 of the Reset is a beautiful opportunity to be in your body and fully experience the shift to a new way of eating and being. Take this moment to indulge in writing a heartfelt love letter. Capture your emotions on paper, whether it's a self-love letter or a deeply meaningful (and maybe slightly naughty) letter for your partner. Be completely honest and vulnerable. One of our favorite exercises is to write out all the things you love about your partner beginning with “I love…”.
Partnered: Exchange love letters: Share your written expressions of love, lust and appreciation with your partner. One of our favorite exercises is to write out all the things you love about your partner beginning with “I love…”. Ex: I love the way you look at me. I love the way you make me feel. I love how much fun we have together. I love how turned on I get when… Take turns looking into each other’s eyes and reading your letters to each other.
Solo: Self-appreciation letter: Write a letter to yourself, expressing love and appreciation for the unique qualities that make you immensely unique and loveable. Embrace self-love through affirmations and acknowledgment of your journey. The “I love” exercise above is also a wonderful practice to do solo, acknowledging yourself and really allowing you to celebrate all the wonderful, beautiful aspects of you.
By Day 3 of the Reset, you should feel more embodied and probably notice that you feel lighter, more relaxed, and more refreshed — which makes it an optimal time to get out of your comfort zone and open to your innate sexual energy and desires. In doing so, you will feel more alive and attuned to the vibrant rhythm of life. It's natural to have hidden desires; we all do!
Partnered: Share your deepest desires with your partner, creating a safe and open space to explore fantasies, kinks and curiosities. Take turns playing out each other’s fantasies, building a foundation of trust and intimacy. For ideas on how to do this, explore the work of Dr. Emily Morse through her book “Smart Sex,” her website, and her podcast, “Sex with Emily.”
Solo: Daily desire journaling: Write down your deepest uncensored cravings, fantasies, and sensuous thoughts to fully embrace and understand your own desires. Later, use your imagination and fantasize about what you wrote. If you need help getting in the mood or letting go, explore seductive movies and books. (A few ideas to get you started: “50 Shades of Grey,” “9 ½ Weeks,” “365 Days,” Anais Nin, or Henry Miller.)
Embracing the innate curiosity within us opens doors to continuous growth, learning, and evolving perspectives. It fuels our journey of self-discovery and allows us to navigate the world with a sense of wonder and empowerment. By Day 4 of the Reset, you should be feeling (and looking :) really good, which may ignite a little more sexy and a lot more desire.
Partnered: Sensual Touch. Take turns softly and slowly exploring each other’s bodies with your hands, or you can even use a feather or sensual toy. As your partner touches you, close your eyes and allow yourself to feel every sensation, and as you touch your partner, pay attention to his / her responses. You may both discover some new erogenous zones. For extra sensation, try an arousal serum like one of our favorites from Rosebud.
Solo: Erotic Edibles. Playfully incorporate aphrodisiacs like Alice Mushrooms’ new Happy Endings aphrodisiac chocolate, Heart: Kanna Gummies from Radiant Farms, or Kroma’s Spicy Passion Latte into your routine to awaken your senses and open you to deeper self-exploration.
Amidst the responsibilities of life, play is not just a luxury but a necessity. When we are in that joyful rhythm, our hearts stay light. It fosters connection and reminds us of the childlike wonder that resides within us when we embrace our authentic selves. You may feel called to let loose on Day 5 of the Reset, and while it is definitely a celebratory moment, mindful reentry into your normal routine is important — you want to keep the Reset benefits going! Take this opportunity to explore new ways to celebrate, for instance by tapping into sensuality and treating yourself to rituals that feel good.
Partnered: Surprise your partner with a seductive striptease. Turn on your favorite sexy playlist and light some candles (we love Maude’s massage oil candles). Playful teasing and slow seductive movements can add an element of fun and excitement to your intimate moments. If you are feeling extra inspired or sensual, indulge in some beautiful lingerie from Fleur Du Mal. Nothing like some sexy lingerie to get you in the mood.
Solo: Uninhibited (Ecstatic) Dance. Put on an outfit (maybe some lingerie?) that makes you feel sexy, turn up some sensual music and let go; no one is watching so you can dance completely uninhibited. This will not only feel amazing, but it will ignite your true feminine essence. You can also dance in front of a full-length mirror making eye contact with yourself. Embrace the power of self-love and let your movements reflect your inner sensuality.
