Dear friends

 

November is the month when we adjust to the longer nights. It's the Autumn season in full flow. For some this can feel challenging but there are practical ways to adapt smoothly, to embrace the elements.

It's a perfect time to make your home feel as cosy and warm as possible for the winter ahead. Rugs, fires, candles, baths, soups, infra red heat, meditation zones, OPO sounds and playlists.

To balance this out, embracing the colder elements of winter rather than fearing them can psychologically shift your day and ease the winter blues. And, importantly, absorb as much outdoor daylight as possible to enhance sleep and circadian rhythm.

Research shows that cold exposure is good for us when done in the right way. It can boost immunity at this time when it is needed most. Take a cold shower in the mornings or plunge in cold/ice waters if you have the opportunity.

Find practices that suit you and remember to breathe deep as you experience them. Here's to a healthy embrace of the seasons ahead!
