The festive season has begun! It’s a great time to start reflecting on our year, our relationships and show the people in our lives how much we care about them. It’s during this time when we are reminded to pause and think about what we are grateful for. It’s a time to show our love and appreciation, as in the midst of our busy lives, we may forget to do so regularly. It’s a time to learn again how to BE, rather than just DO (more on this in our next newsletter…).
To support your wellbeing and thriving, this Thanksgiving, our health coach and nutrition therapist, Vanessa Kahler, shares with you our tips for a healthy Thanksgiving.
As we fall past fall and wander into winter – we enter a season of festivities and cultural celebrations, that have evolved to largely revolve around food and the idea of “feasting”. Traditionally however, most of these celebrations have a deeper meaning rooted in gratitude.
Thanksgiving is an example of a celebration day originally established as a time to gather with family and friends to give thanks for the many blessings of the year. But it has become less about being grateful for what we have and more about over indulging in more than we need.
The aftermath of these celebrations has also strangely become something we accept. It’s not uncommon to feel tried, sluggish, a little depressed, a little heavier, not to mention feeling lighter in our wallets.
