WELLNESS TIPS FOR SPRING

Ah, spring. A time where we see the natural world softly step out of hibernation, habits changes, animals are born, plants regenerate and reflection takes place. In traditional Chinese Medicine, spring time is associated with the Liver and energetically speaking associated with the flow of energy physically in the body and emotionally too. This is a transition period moving away from Yin energy to a season full of Yang energy . . . from cold to warmth, dark to light, inwards to outwards.

As we move out of the slower paced, cooler period winter brings and into this beautiful transition season we can support our bodies through the way we eat, move and live through a holistic approach that focuses on seasonal living.

1. EAT: FRESH, GREEN AND SOUR FOODS

Eat more nutritionally dense foods that support the liver like leafy greens, fresh herbs, micro greens, asparagus, broccoli, seaweed, spirulina, wheatgrass and fermented foods. This is a time to limit foods that are super fatty, fried and greasy as these can be harsh on the liver. Now is also the perfect time to switch your warming black and chai tea to delicious alternatives like a matcha latte or dandelion tea.

2. MOVE: OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

We can notice our energy start to bloom more during this time which is the perfect excuse to add more movement into your routine. Try yoga, pilates or more importantly exercising outdoors with small hikes, brisk walks or light jogging.

3. REFRESH: YOUR SPACE AND MIND

You know what they say . . . it's time for a spring clean! Spring feels like a fresh start and time to let go of what isn't serving us in our day-to-day lives and emotionally deep within too. This is the time to clear out that wardrobe and here's a little tip for that - if you didn't wear it ONCE this winter, you probably aren't going to wear it next winter either (a tip from our beautiful co-founder Vrindy).Let go baby and go with the ebbs and flows that life offers you.

4. BODY: KEEP COVERED 

Even though it may be warming up, don't go too crazy for that summer feelin' just yet ladies. Spring is a time of on-going temperature and weather changes. Still keep your body covered by wearing a light jacket to protect yourself from wind and try and keep your hands and feet warm during the colder mornings and nights.

There we have it! Our top tips for spring inspired by traditional Chinese Medicine so you can feel your best mentally, spiritually and physically. Enjoy this beautiful seasons ladies.
