enriching your spirit in cold and wet weather, happiness in cold and wet weather
Yes indeed, shaking off those winter blues in the colder months can be spiritual.


Wintery, cold and wet weather is a cause to hibernate - in other words to rug up at home and do nothing. At the least, this can be quite depressing for active people. You might feel too cold, ill and/or tired to do anything. In saying this, there are plenty of ways to enrich your spirit in the cold and flu season.

1. Yoga

Absolutely brilliant. Hot yoga is a bonus, although you don't need to undertake too many intense, fast vinyasa poses to lift your spirits and grow spiritually in autumn and winter. Case in point. This morning (as at the time of writing this) I engaged in one hour of grounding yoga by a new yoga teacher who admitted to being a little nervous. I found the experience to be exceptional, and it took me away from the wet, cold and miserable weather outside for a whole hour. My body was loving it. In immense presence and gratitude, your yoga practise will flow. It all occurred at a gentle pace, and (for a change) it was nice to start and end that particular practise in the relaxation/lying down pose called shivasana. Normally yoga practitioners take their yogis into this pose right at the end of the session, and not at the beginning. This connected our group to earth/on the ground, and all in all an awesome practice was enjoyed. One's mind did not wander, especially as my breathing became so intense and focused. The flow was smooth and not rushed. Perfect.

2. Meditation

A beautiful way to hibernate in your home for about 10 minutes every morning before heading out. I am lucky that the main work in my business is super busy in cold weather. That way I am always inside and helping people, and keeping out of the cold outside as much as possible. Engaging in your passion in winter/keeping busy and not rushed is just divine. This is like a meditation in itself in deep presence.

3. Massages

Winter is a perfect time to indulge in a hot stone massage, or any form of massage. The warmth of the massage room while you're being pampered is just awesome. Massages are uplifting and nourishing. A perfect winter past time.

4. Positive TV

I am not saying that watching TV is bad, however, there is a lot of negativity on the box as well as positive outcomes. Focus on the latter. Why not watch a spiritual and/or enjoyable movie that does not shoot and/or stab anybody, and one that enriches your happiness simultaneously - even if it is a feel good chick flick.

Such activities are uplifting, and even better they would definitely assist in keeping the colds and flus at bay. Shake those winter blues.
