Autumn has arrived
The clocks have long gone back, All Hallows Eve has passed, winter is coming; it’s a time for respecting the season and allowing our mind/ body/ soul good food, regular flowing movement and plenty of rest. It can be a time when it’s easy to get run down, as we try to maintain a pace from the earlier part of the year, but it’s really about letting go of what no longer serves us now the days are shorter and energy is at more of a premium. It’s one of our favourite times of year at Bodhi Movement, and it’s now that we like to borrow a thing or two from the Danish Tradition of Hygge
The Danish tradition of Hygge (pronounced Hooga) means embracing the cold and treasuring comfort and warmth. This sounds like a great way to manage the winter months to us, creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people.
Think long evenings in front of the fire or by candlelight, enjoying quality time with friends and family, savoring good food prepared from primarily fresh ingredients, making sufficient time for yourself using practices such as yoga or mindful meditation, taking care of your health by regularly drinking a warm mug of black or green tea.
How can you inject a bit of hygge into YOUR life?
Can you wind down from work earlier in the evening, to balance the reduced energy levels you might be feeling? Can you look at downloading a useful app such as f.lux which alters the colour of your computer screen so it glows warm in the evening, rather than shining bluelight into your eyes and keeping you awake past bedtime.
