Hey beautiful people,

It is fair to say winter has arrived and for me it is a love hate season. During the warmer periods like summer and spring, most people would smile, people looked radiant and were creative in how they showed off their fashion styles. The colder periods on the other hand while one can look forward to the festive vibes that comes with the season. I am already seeing Christmas decorations being put up. Autumn (fall) also seems to be a colourful season with the various shades of red, yellow, purple, black, orange, brown. However, it is important that we are aware of the unique challenges that comes with the colder season on our physical, mental and emotional well-being.  I know I am not at my ‘happiest’ during this season and I am sure a lot of you can relate. So I thought instead of suggesting that we all bury ourselves somewhere counting down the days until next spring, I would share some positive tips on how we can get through the cold season. Enjoy the read guys and make sure to leave comment and share your thoughts after.

Take care of your whole body

It is not enough to just engage in the odd massage when your muscles gets tense. We should take care of our body as a whole. This includes regular exercise, changing our diet (strengthening our immune system with citrus fruits- orange, lemon and the right supplements such as vitamin C and D), keeping hydrated and taking care of our skin as it tends to get dryer in the cold season.

Slow Down

Our bodies naturally gets slower and energy levels start to drop during the winter period. Be aware of these changes,  be kind to yourself and follow your body’s pace.  You might find yourself wanting to sleep earlier which is a natural cue to the nights getting longer and the days get shorter. So instead of fighting your body, sometimes it’s better to give it what it needs: – Slow Down and Rest.

Practice Gratitude

We are now very close to the end of  the year and for a lot of us that means reviewing our yearly goals. You might even be like me and are still trying to set new goals or realistically reviewing the goals that may not be achieved. While that’s all fine and good, it is important that towards the end of the year we shift our focus towards gratitude. By incorporating a simple gratitude practice into your day you can actually lift up your mood. I have been practicing listing at least 5 positive things that happened during the day before bed. I find it has actually helped me. The ability to train your mind to be thankful and positive is a achievement in itself sometimes! What you will also find is that these small practices impact every other part of your life, particularly the way we interact with others.

This brings me to the end of my post guys, I hope you found this helpful.
