THE FALL - AUTUMN INGREDIENTS AND WELLBEING
This autumn during the annual fall of the leaves, we want you to wrap up in luxury not just physically but also mentally. Autumn is a glorious time of year, with it comes cooler air flows, beautiful golden crisp sunsets, the days get that bit shorter, and the leaves turn delicious shades.
Have you heard of affirmation cards? Here at VOYA, we believe that you have the power to take charge over your mind and emotions. If we choose to think positively, we can lift ourselves up and create a positive atmosphere, and no matter where you go, it will come with you. Keep affirmation cards in the office or at home shuffle and choose spontaneously for positive wellbeing tips. Keep focused on your core values and root purpose in this season.
Be kind to yourself.
Walks in Nature
Walks in the autumn are always a wonderful way to feel grounded, and instantly renewed. Get out into nature and those beautiful leaves and feel instantly grounded and better, also the exercise will do you good! This isn’t a time for hibernation it’s a time for rejuvenation and balance.
Stay nourished with seasonal foods that are available and fresh. Buy foods that are in season. Due to the change in temperature, you are more likely to get sick this time of year. Hit up those herbs and spices, start making some soups, broths, and roots! Turmeric, garlic, and ginger are excellent for balancing you and maintaining health and wellbeing. Next week’s blog will outline some sweet and spicy dish suggestions!
Do some home improvements before the winter closes in, clean away those skimpy summer unwanted items, organise the closest, get some candles in and a nice rug to wrap up in for those cosy nights. Doing a ‘spring’ clean in autumn is really good for your sense of wellbeing, its make you organised and mentally prepared for the darker months.
