Seasons change. We are moving into autumn and winter when nature calls on us to withdraw, ground ourselves, rest and recharge even as the animals, trees, shrubs and flowers do. However, we are experiencing more darkness, cold, immune system challenges from cold and flu season, and increased stress as we add Holiday preparations and celebrations to our usual work, school and family activities.
We all recognize the importance of self-care but it often seems to be overwhelming, and one more thing to try to fit into our crazy schedules.
Remember though, being grateful for ourselves is essential and self-care and immune support will help get us through the season. It doesn’t have to be a big deal. Little daily practices can make a huge difference.
“When you drop any new idea in the pond of the world, you get a ripple effect. You have to be aware that you will be creating a cascade of change.” Joel A. Barker
Look for little ways to support yourself daily. Take 5 or 6 deep abdominal breaths while clearing your mind. Step outside and take in nature for a few minutes. Take a special herbal tea blend daily. The little things done daily will ripple out and affect you, your family and all those meet during your day. End your day with listing what you are grateful for about yourself first and then things you are grateful for outside of yourself.
