While it’s fun and festive, it can lead to longer to-do lists, jam-packed schedules and a whole lot of STRESS if not scheduled well, so it’s even more important to prioritize self-care and nourishment.
Here are three easy ways to incorporate some self-priority into your routine these next few weeks:
🍁Avoid eating cold foods or drinking anything complicated. It’s colder outside, even in California! Eating cold foods can create more stress in the body and increase anxiety and sleep issues. Instead, focus on warming dishes, warming spices, teas, and tonics to help calm your system.
🍁 Sit less! Add mini-movement breaks into your day, a walk around the block after meals, 10-minute pilates/yoga, dance to a favorite song, and play and with your fur baby! (I’ve been dancing to old school hip hop music lately!). Moving will warm up your body and grease up your joints. (Note: If you're in a phase where you're having hot flashes... please do more gentle movement).
🍁Nourish your system with rest and presence. There are many ways to do this, but a few examples are meditation, restorative yoga, somatic experiencing, walking in nature, or slowly sipping tea. I make fresh mint tea from my garden daily.
