Don't fall in love (with Spring) too soon.
We’ve had a couple of nice, warm days around here and I can sense my temptation to feel like it’s Spring already. But I know what happens when I do that too soon. Something in me melts, and I open up to new beginnings and warmer weather. My energy changes… and then another cold blast of Winter feels even harsher and harder to take. Has this ever happened to you?
Not only that, but when we fall into the arms of Spring too soon, we miss out on some of the important aspects of Winter that we need to get us through the rest of the year. We need to stay in the darker, colder days a little bit longer so that we can absorb the quiet and store up reserves we are going to need later.
If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of Winter and how to get the most out of it and be ready for the rest of the seasons charged with your full potential, come to my next workshop - “Filling Your Reserves in Winter” at Nava Yoga on Friday, Feb. 17 at 6:30 pm. Here’s a link to register.
So, my friend, stay steady and true. Don’t be tempted by the flirtations of early spring weather. Keep cosy and wrapped up in your winter blankets. When the time does come you will be ready to open your arms to Spring when it fully arrives.
Five Element Acupuncture treatment is another great way to stay in balance as the seasons change. Come in for a session soon to experience that for yourself!
