Now that winter is upon us our days can seem short and gloomy. Below are some winter wellness tips to help us get through the grey days ahead!
Set up a morning routine.This sounds funny, but it works great! If you start your day with specific things, your body will learn to wake up and get excited for the morning. I typically start my day with hot lemon water, matcha, or coffee, then I listen to a podcast while playing with my cat Luna. Ever since I started this routine, I look forward to waking up.
Get moving! Even for 5 minutes in the morning, doing one or two sun salutations can help get your endorphins flowing setting you up for a better day.
Write a Gratitude Journal. At the end of the day, write down 3 things that you are grateful for and 5 people that bring you joy.
Go see some green!Most of us in Chicago live near one of the two lovely conservatories which are amazing winter therapy. I try to visit the Lincoln Park Conservatory every other week to get a dose of 'summer'.
