Happy Spring Equinox, the first day of Spring! As we are transitioning from winter into spring, it is good to acknowledge that spring brings with it a new energy. This is the season traditionally linked with rebirth, renewing and replenishing – and it is a refreshing time of the year as we move forward.
So how do we best harness the new energy that spring brings?
1. Self care is always a good place to start. When we do the basics, such as getting enough sleep, water, nutrition and exercise, we automatically uplevel our ability to discern our place in our environment. Our mind is clearer, our heart is freer, and we generally experience a heightened sense of happiness and satisfaction.
2. Aromatherapy is an effective way to harness change – put the tried and true chemical nature of essential oils to work on behalf of your brain and sense of well-being. Some oils that are particularly supportive to supporting change or transition are rosemary, detoxification blend (includes frankincense, wild orange, lemongrass, thyme, summer savory and niaouli), cilantro and frankincense
3. Yoga is another way we can support ourselves. When we are addressing change, detoxification sequences help us usher out the old to make room for the new.
Together these supports will help you to have more clarity and perspective, to step back and see what’s in front of you so change improves you rather than getting the best of you.
