With the arrival of winter comes the corresponding descent into our own darkness. It is a time to rest, explore the shadows and delve deep into studies and the subconscious. This period of reflection is an essential part of nourishing and understanding ourselves. It prepares us to let go of what no longer serves us and clears the way for the light of spring.
Now is a great time to focus on meditation practices and study. Do you have any books or courses that you have been putting off? Use the long winter evenings to soak up knowledge and challenge your brain.
Meditation is a great way to experience and immerse yourself in the stillness of winter. Just 5-10 minutes a day can have a powerful impact on your well-being. If you struggle to stay focused in a meditation practice, I highly recommend downloading the Insight Timer meditation app, it has plenty of beautiful guided meditations that you can follow, either for falling asleep, relaxing, or re-energising your mind and body.
