Winter does not have to be dreadful, try any one of the below tips and see if you could feel a difference in your day to day!
Start your day with something you love
For the fall and winter season, I love starting my day with a good cup of java. But not just you’re regular kind of coffee, I’m talking about a homemade pumpkin spice coffee! I spice up my coffee with a teaspoon of pumpkin, a splash of almond milk and a dash of pumpkin pie spices. It’s so nice to wake up to something tasty that will perk you up!
Baths and body butter
With the cooler temperature, treat yourself with a nice long bath and once you’re done, while your body is still a bit damp apply a rich body butter like the ATMA Carnelian Sandalwood Moon Butter. The elegant scent of sandalwood will follow you nicely throughout your day and by applying something so rich to your body when your skin is damp will allow moisture trap to the surface of your skin to keep your body feeling nice and soft.
Give your head some love! Especially when you’re not washing it as often as you would in the summer. Love Hair Volumizing Dry Shampoo is a magical product that will keep your hair looking and feeling fresh! I like applying the dry shampoo directly on areas that may feel a bit greasy and then massaging it through my head to distribute the product. Such a lovely and easy way to keep your hair looking good!
Add a Jade Facial Roller to your skincare routine
Who says your skin has to feel dry and dull in the winter? By using a Jade Facial Roller along with your favorite serum you can support lymphatic drainage to reduce the appearance of puffiness, and wrinkles. Not to mention the cooling effect it has makes it extra relaxing when you’re rolling.
Step out and retreat
Embrace the season by retreating the mind, body, and soul with a yoga retreat! Come join me on my Autumn Equinox Retreat in Perth, Ontario! You can join just for a day or two for a weekend getaway to submerge yourself with gentle movements and the lovely atmosphere of Perth! Aside from yoga classes, we will be exploring the town of Perth (including shopping parties with 25% off all products), massages, hot tub and steam room time, swimming in the indoor pool, trying the best pies there is, and more!
Let’s rock our winter season this year!
Also, don’t forget to integrate stretches to your body during the winter months. Step out and practice with me! You have three chances a week to practice on the mat with me where I’ll guide you to an hour long pressure-free class where you can take it at your own pace the whole way through and end the practice with a relaxing massage from me. For November and December I’ll be carrying out my 2 for 2 yoga to kindness program where portion of my sales will go to 2 different charities!
So feel good about being kind to your body and join us on the mat!
