  1. Start Your Day with Gratitude
Sure the weather is frigid and you‚re fed up with social distancing, but it won‚t do you any good to focus on the negatives. Instead, shift your mindset by practicing gratitude (a wonderful tool for enhancing your wellbeing and mental health). Start each day by writing down or saying aloud three things you‚re grateful for ‚ and notice how your mood shifts. Here are 5 ways you can practice gratitude this season!
  1. Cook with Seasonal Winter Produce
Take advantage of all Mother Nature has to offer by fueling your body with in-season produce! Our favorite winter produce picks include winter squash, collard greens, grapefruit and pomegranate. Hint: seasonal fruits and veggies make a delicious smoothie fixing too (especially when paired with a scoop of our Green Vibrance superfood powder). Consider shopping nearby farmers markets or joining a local CSA to stock up on local, in-season produce throughout the year!
  1. Incorporate Warming Self-Care Exercises
It‚s time to heat things up ‚ and we‚re not talking about your love life! This winter, amp up your self-care with cozy at-home rituals like a hot Epsom salt bath, DIY spa day or fireside meditation. Try these at-home self-care techniques to boost your immunity (and mood) this winter. Remember: there‚s absolutely nothing selfish about self-care!
  1. Move Your Body
As much as you want to cozy up on the couch with Netflix, it‚s important not to forget to move your body. Consider a brisk hike outside or warming vinyasa flow to get your blood pumping. Try these at-home winter workout tipsfor some ideas to get started! And if you‚re working at a desk all day, be sure to integrate mini breaks throughout the day to move your body, stretch and breathe.
  1. Quiet Your Mind
Just as significant as moving your body is taking time for yourself to slow down. Winter is a season for ‚hibernation‚ ‚ an ideal time to go inward and tune into your body. Ask yourself ‚How do I want to feel?‚ and allow that to guide your decisions throughout the day. Mini meditations, journaling or positive affirmation cards are all great tools to help you check in with yourself this season!
