5 Winter wellness tips

Welcome to our winter wellness guide! As the colder months settle in, it's essential to prioritise our well-being and adapt to the changing seasons. In this blog post, we'll explore five game changing winter wellness tips to help you stay healthy and happy throughout the season. 

From embracing seasonal eating and nourishing your body with warming foods to incorporating spices and hydrating your skin with healthy fats, we've got you covered. 

We have also made a handy seasonal market guide, highlighting the best produce to enjoy during this time. Go grab yourself a tea and your winter socks, ready to make nourishing, winter inspired meals and work with the seasons for your body and mind.

1. Nourish your gut with warming foods 

Give your digestive system a break from raw foods by incorporating warming options like soups, stews, curries, and roasted vegetables into your meals. These cooked foods will keep you warm and nourished during the colder months. Try out recipes like a comforting Kitchari or our Warm Cleanse.

2.Spice it up 

Use your spice draw to discover the power of warming spices that boost circulation, warm up the body, and add depth to your meals. Include spices like cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in your winter dishes. These spices not only provide warmth but also offer various health benefits and enhance digestion. Our Organic Turmeric Latte  is packed full of warming spices and makes a glorious immune supporting, anti-inflammatory and caffeine free warm drink for Winter.

3. Hydrate your skin with healthy fats

Combat the drying effects of winter on your skin by consuming healthy fats and oils. Avocado, olive oil, flaxseed oil, coconut oil, nuts, seeds, tahini, oily fish, and fats from animal products like butter and ghee are excellent options. Healthy fats are the building blocks for the cell membranes of our skin and by including them in our diet we prevent dry and cracked skin, hair and nails this winter.

4. Prioritise mental well-being and sleep

It's no secret that winter blues and reduced outdoor activities can affect our mood. By practising mindfulness we can cultivate calmness, balance, and happiness during these months. This can look like taking regular breaks, going for walks in nature, learning meditation through apps, writing a gratitude journal, disconnecting from technology before bed, and creating inviting spaces that uplift your spirits.

With longer nights, listen to your body's natural inclination to rest and adjust your sleep patterns accordingly. The reduced exposure to natural light in winter affects our sleep hormones. Embrace the opportunity for extra sleep and allow your body to rejuvenate. Don't fight the urge to burrow under your covers and wake up feeling groggy. Your body will appreciate the extra rest.

5. Embrace seasonal eating

Indulge in the abundance of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables that are in season during winter from our guide below. Opting for locally grown produce ensures you are getting the freshness and most cost effective produce whilst supporting local growers.
