Shorter Days, Cooler Nights

Posted on April 29, 2021 at 12:15 AM

Are your current habits aligned with the current season?  The days are gradually getting shorter and cooler and we’ve experience some rain which is typical for autumn.

May is the last month in autumn. As we start to move from autumn into the winter months, consider some practices to align with the seasonal changes, including:-

 

 

  • deep breathing exercises, breathing in through the nose and out through the nose, breathing from the bottom of your lungs.
  • mindfulness practices eg letting go of the old things, whether objects, emotions or old bad habits.
  • keep up the sunshine, get a daily dose of vitamin D to enhance the immune system.
  • get into those herbs you’ve planted during the previous seasons or herbal supplements.  Immune stimulating herbs include elderberry, echinacea, astragalus, and andrographis.
  • take time out and enjoy a cup of tea.  Did you know white tea is higher in antioxidants than green tea?
  • eat more astringent foods at this time, like - cranberries, pears, figs, beans, cauliflower (check out this month’s recipe), lentils, sauerkraut as well as packing in some pungent foods such as onion, garlic, pepper, tumeric, chillies and herbs.
  • If your blood pressure allows (ie not high BP) allow some natural saltiness in the diet too eg nori rolls, miso soup, seaweed, anchovies.
  • eat dark leafy greens (silverbeet, kale) added to any dish are always a good idea.  
  • 
need a sweet treat? try some stewed apples with cinnamon to regulate your hormones and boost mental health and your skin.  Cinnamon has blood sugar regulating properties so this can benefit those with diabetes. 
  • boost your mood with some pumpkin which is plentiful during Autumn (check out last month’s recipe).
