As we move thought the season of Winter, what do you need to do to support your wellness?

Traditionally winter has been a time of coming in, of keeping warm, of rest and of renewal.

The Midwinter Solstice (Hibernal Solstice) 21 December reminds us of our connection to season cycles. It marks and grounds our relationship with our earth, linking with the light and energy of the sun. In the dark, as in life, we know and appreciate the light.

Ancient peoples whose survival depended on a precise knowledge of seasonal cycles marked this first day of winter with elaborate ceremonies and celebrations. Spiritually, these celebrations symbolize the opportunity for renewal, a casting off of old habits and negative feelings and an embracing of hope amid darkness as the days once again begin to grow longer.” CNN Travel.

Today, most of us live in a world that is always taking us out. Even within the winter months we have little time to come in and life often does not slow down naturally.

Maybe when you have chance take a moment to come inside. To rest your body on the earth and rest your mind in the safety of your body, for a short while.

Connect both body and mind, and recall your natural cycle of life. Remember to call upon your inner wisdom; often rediscovered in these moments of stillness and of calm.

And in those moments of reflection, dare to plan, to dream, to nourish yourself and hold sacred your hopes of Spring’s horizon and another New Year.

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience” Ralph Waldo Emerson

So as we all move through the darkest months, enjoy the journey back into the light.
