Self Care for winter

Self Care for winter

With Autumn fully amongst us, Here are a few tips to keep you thriving through the colder months. 

Slow Down

As humans we sometimes forget we are part of nature and not separate from it. Winter is the time of the cycle where everything slows down and goes into Hibernation or into regeneration mode. Use this time of cycle to slow down. Create spaces to tap more into self, Meditation or creating a self care routine are a few ways you can tap into self. Try the wellness box.

Spend time outside

Whether it’s for a run or a short walk through nature. Natural Sunlight is an import part of overall health and with there being less of it during winter its more important to make sure u get a few hours of natural sunlight. Wrap up and try a walk after lunch. Seasonal Affective Disorder: a condition that mimics the symptoms of depression due to the lack of sunlight and a lack of vitamin d affects a lot of people during this time. Use ‘light therapy’ or effective supplementation to combat this.
