Oftentimes we think because the days are shorter and darkness is more dominant that things aren’t as good. But now is a huge time to nourish yourself – body, mind and soul.
Winter affords us a season of more rest, quiet, tranquility, and a time to nourish ourselves and go within.
It’s times like these that we can take a breath from everyday life and enjoy the simple things. The hustle and bustle of life, especially with high energy summer can be exhausting energetically – but when winter comes around, we get a chance to balance that all out.
We need to take this time to be quiet within our self and eat those nourishing foods – the soups, stews, hot cereals, warm beverages, and other deeply nourishing things. And then pair them with quiet times indoors, cozying up with a nice blanket, warm beverage, and a good book. Maybe even adding in some journaling, meditation or quiet contemplation.
This rest period is setting us up for the spring/summer which will be more awake and alive with energy. It’s now that we take time to rebuild from what we’ve been through the past several months – while also building up an internal battery that will help us going forward into the warmer, more energetically heavy seasons.
The energy of winter is a quiet vibration. It might not be crazy hectic like summer when everything is full of aliveness – but like anything else in life and like yin and yang – we need to create balance. Winter does this for us.
May this quiet nature of this season nourish your body, mind and soul. xx
