If you ask any gardener what they're doing this Fall, they would tell you about the bouquet of seeds and bulbs they're gathering. They would tell you vividly about the beautiful Spring flowers their seeds will yield and how they've strategically chosen their favorites with the hopes of beautifying their lives when Spring rolls around.
It's the true mark of wisdom to live in congruence with nature. Since we've learned this secret, we try our best to plan according to the seasons as much as possible. We like to think about which chakras will need the most attention depending on the time of year and which products and offerings our clients will need in times of transition.
The colder months are all about change, preparation, looking deep into ourselves and finding time to rest. This time of year, we're reconnecting with our inner world as well as our closest friends and family. All the while, we know that at some point the cold weather will give way to emerging blooms and the striving energy of Spring. The energy of Spring is about going out and achieving your dreams and essentially, blooming. When Spring arrives, you may find people looking to manifest new relationships, new jobs or even new living situations. In Spring, there is a deep push for growth. I find my year tends go much more smoothly when I use the fertile, regenerative energy of the colder seasons to plant the "seeds" or goals that I want to come to fruition in Spring.
For this reason, we always suggest our clients create a Spring plan for wellness.
One of the best ways to do this is to book a Spring wellness retreat. More and more women are waking up to the fact that self-care is no longer just a luxury to throw in "here and there" or a flight of fancy only worthy of Instagram photos and Snaps. It's the key to a better life and a sustained sense of well-being, joy, and staying present. We're committed to self-care like nobody's business. So, get ready. Next Spring we're bringing you a brand new international retreat experience- the Mindful Mosaic Women's retreat to Playa Ocotal, Costa Rica. This getaway is meticulously planned to nurture personal growth, pamper the mind/body/spirit after a long cold winter, and its an amazing opportunity to explore a gorgeous new locale.
To better help you plan for this event, we've set up easy payment plans. We love the idea of having a great travel experience to look forward to. The best part about this retreat is you can travel with buddies or go solo, either way, you'll be amongst like-minded, friendly people. Just remember to bring your passport!
Another great tip for planning ahead is to set some goals. If you can set some achievable goals for yourself, you'll emerge in Spring feeling like a whole new you. You'll stand taller, more confident, and you'll feel so accomplished you'll be ready to take on any new opportunities Spring will bring your way. We recommend following the S.M.A.R.T strategy when setting goals. Ie. Make sure your goals are :
- Specific (simple, sensible, significant).
- Measurable (meaningful, motivating).
- Achievable (attainable).
- Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based).
- Time bound (time-based, time limited, time/cost limited, timely, time-sensitive).
We're also huge proponents of doing a nourishing cleanse a few times a year, and Spring is a great time to do so. We tend to go into storage-mode when cold weather strikes and it can mean taking in a lot more calories. Calories can skyrocket since the holiday festivities tempt us to pile up on the candy, delicious holiday foods and alcohol. There's nothing wrong with a little indulgence, however, come Spring, you'll likely be feeling the effects.
There's a point where we begin to feel our energy dwindle as our body tries to eliminate toxins and normalize. To help get back on track, you can always make plans ahead to cleanse with us next Spring or you can simply purchase a Mindful Health Cleanse now, in preparation for Spring (Cleanses tend to sell out quickly) When you get yours ahead of time, you'll have a program ready for when your body desperately needs a two week reset.
These are just a couple ways to start planning ahead for a healthier, happier Spring.
