Stress-free Lifestyle for Fall Wellness

Stress-free Lifestyle for Fall Wellness

Many of us welcome cooler weather and the slower pace that come with the fall season. We enjoy the abundance of colorful produce at the farmer’s markets, and the aroma of pumpkin-spice latte upon entering coffee shops. As we smell, feel, see, and appreciate the changes, we need to remember that fall is also a valuable time to prepare our bodies and souls for harsher weather, less daylight, and more indoor time spent during the winter months.

Understanding Our Relationship With Food

Understanding Our Relationship With Food

Eating is not optional, we humans need to eat daily to survive, and if we do it right, we’ll thrive. There is a lot to consider regarding food: The quality of ingredients, the caloric and nutritional value, the best type of diet for individual needs, and finding recipes to make our meals tasty, satisfying, and easy-to-prepare. As we think about what we should be eating, we might not realize that the behavioral patterns we develop around food have a significant impact on how our bodies are able to digest and assimilate to help us flourish, and not just to survive.

Enjoying Nature as a Prescription for Health

Enjoying Nature as a Prescription for Health

How would you like to get a prescription saying, “Spend time in nature at least three times a week”, when you next see your doctor? For many of us who live in the modern world and are used to medications, treatments, and surgeries, this might sound surprising, or even odd. However, there is a growing body of research showing evidence that connecting with nature may play an important role in healing and preventing chronic conditions, supporting mental health, and slowing down the aging process. 

Let’s take care of NATURE so she can take care of us!

Let’s take care of NATURE so she can take care of us!

We all agree that we cannot survive without nature; yet, we often take it for granted. We love going on vacations to catch some sunshine at the beach, to explore mountain trails, to experience camping in the forests, or simply find a place where we can breathe fresh air and relax. However, we often forget that this is a privilege and it is our responsibility to take care of our natural environment.
