Tip 1: Mindfulness During the Holidays

With autumn here, I am enjoying the subtle changes that come with the season. Seeing the bounty of beauty with the leaves changing, pumpkins, squashes, persimmons and pomegranates makes me so happy. I also can appreciate the gradual slowing down that comes with the sun setting earlier. A feeling of wanting to get cozy with loved ones at home. With this grounding energy though, there also comes the series of events and activities that come with the Holidays. With the busy time ahead, we can do certain things to insure we feel calm and balanced. I have put together some tips that I try and follow over the holidays, so I hope they may help you too stay peaceful and calm during this time. 

Tip 1: Starting the day right by waking up to clean, organic, natural, non-toxic bedding like the beautiful sheets by Coyuchi. I wear their soft, organic pajamas as well. It is so crucial to know what our skin is absorbing. It doesn’t make sense to eat well, and then wear garments or sleep in bedding that has been exposed to chemicals. There is more and more data associating illnesses with how fabrics are treated. I first started using Coyuchi ten years ago when I wanted to eliminate all synthetics from my home. With Coyuchi, I feel confident that I am keeping my family and myself safe. I also love the serene color palettes and design of the lounge and sleep wear. Being green doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice beauty.
