Wellness Tips for September


Welcome to September and the grounding, hard-working, and practical energy of the Virgo sun! We tend to have a deeper connection to Mother Nature this time of year, and Her bounty never disappoints. Here are Five Wellness Tips to help you feel your best all month long:

1.Eat at least one apple a day. Nature provides a bountiful harvest this time of year, and apples help you release any residual summer heat. According to Ayurveda, releasing the summer heat helps prevent colds in the fall/winter. And, interestingly, we actually can witness the heat being evacuated through looser than normal stool.


2.Balance with seasonal foods. As the temperature varies day to day, adjust your diet accordingly. Eat cooling foods on warm days, and warming foods on cooler days. Cooling/calming foods include coconut, dates, berries, melon, summer squash, cucumbers, lime, mint, cilantro, fennel, basil, and of course apples. Warming/grounding foods to enjoy are root vegetables, sweet potatoes, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, nuts, seeds, oats, and pumpkin.

3.Take time to recharge. The end of summer can be busy, and the return to routine jarring. So it’s important to prioritize relaxation. Embrace practices like Yoga Nidra, restorative yoga, and meditation. It’s a great time to indulge in a mid-day guided savasana, like this one I recorded for you. It's only 10 minutes long, and will feel like a treat!

4.Practice gratitude. September can be a time of transitions, and keeping a gratitude journal will keep you focused on the positive parts of your life. Try drifting off to sleep at night while counting your many blessings, or write them down before going to bed.

5.Stay active. Take advantage of the cooler temperatures and lower humidity with an outside activity. Take long walks in nature, find a local hike, or spend time biking. Regular physical activity remains an essential part of your sense of well-being.
