A time to find some peace and be thankful, observe gratitude and be kind.
Hello to all of my wonderful clients, friends and anyone reading this news edit.
I just want to take the time to share with you my festive wishes and hopes for us all – this is my greetings card to you all.
I would also like to thank you so much for all of your continued support, time and love this past year, for me and my precious business. The Kind Living Space has been through some real hurdle’s, endured, pivoted and is now growing again, despite the many barriers to this at present. This simply reminds me that I am aligned with my truest purpose and I am still passionate about doing what I do for you all!
Top Tips For Keeping Well This Winter…
Sleep – prioritise your sleep and make sure you have turned off any devices before 10pm. This really does work to help reduce stress, encouraging your melatonin to seep in and send you off for some quality, dreamy sleep. I often use a sleep tea, a non wi-fi device for meditations/sleep stories called a Mylee.
Make sure you are still getting all your vitamins and minerals in daily – whatever is happening food/drink wise. Sea Moss is amazing for reaching your RDA of minerals, Magnesium, Vit D and C and of course the traditional Elderberry syrup is a pretty solid staple.
Drink plenty of water and keep hydrated. It is so easy to be dehydrated in the Winter – central heating, late nights (festive period) and working inside more – add a squeeze of lemon for an alkalising boost and to prevent colds, etc.
Use OnGuard (Doterra blended oil) for general all-round protection from germs/bacteria. Using traditional essential oils such as Clove, Melaleuca, Frankincense and more. Available from me all year round. Easy to apply from a roller ball to pulse points and on scarves.
Meditate – use guided meditations if you have to. But seriously, slow the mind down and spend time in peace whenever possible. This opens up the opportunity for gratitude, mind/body connection and regulation of the sympathetic nervous systems.
Fun – Make sure to keep having fun and find opportunities to celebrate and laugh (whenever possible) it really is the best medicine!
Don’t forget it is the Winter Solstice on the 21st December
The solstice may have been a special moment of the annual cycle for some cultures even during Neolithic times. Astronomical events were often used to guide activities, such as the mating of animals, the sowing of crops and the monitoring of winter reserves of food. Many cultural mythologies and traditions are derived from this.
You too can use this time to share a Winter Feast, create a candlelight circle, share family folklore, perform a smudge, take a sunrise hike, play music, give self-care to yourself or others. If you wish to explore any of these and aren’t sure where to start, message me directly.
I just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas, a happy festive time and a Happy New Year with your loved ones. Take away from this year that if there is anything more precious than shop bought gifts, nice foods and parties, it is TIME.
Time together, time being free and choosing to live life everyday while we are here – what a truly magnificent gift that is to ourselves and our families!
