1. Session note from the week
Let the walls come falling down. Why cope when you can clear? In light of fall, what would you like to consider letting go of and allowing to fall away this season?
2. Healthy tip to consider
Eating locally and in season is a symbolic way to honor the process and establish a relationship with the earth. It also has many health benefits such as increased nutrient density and immune regulating effects- because it establishes connection between you and the environment, modulating your system accordingly.
For fall, specifically, think down to earth, grounded foods like sweet potatoes, pumpkin, squash, apples, cinnamon, etc. All very calming, rooted foods that allow the system to transition from the height of summer to the transitional nature of fall.
3. Fall festivities
Transitioning into a new season, especially from summer to fall, can bring up a myriad of health issues, such as seasonal affective disorder, from the change in light to the nostalgia of old memories and an internal focus reflective of the season. It can also, however, be an opportune time to reset, to gather in community, enjoy fall festivals, dress up, get creative, carve pumpkins, decorate and create new memories!
As always, it is what you make it and typically, each experience comes with a bit of both-and! From that space, we can choose.
