5 Cozy Wellness Tips To Get You Through The Holiday Season

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is enough to put anyone off their game. If you’re not careful, come January, you can feel the effects of burnout. With all the holiday parties, work deadlines, cold and flu seasons, etc. etc. etc., it’s easy to not feel your best. If you’re looking for a few easy ways to keep your wellness on track this season, read on.

Hot Yoga

Not only is it so good for you, but a hot yoga session on a cold winter night? It’s just the best. Typically, we sweat less in the winter months. Sweating is our bodies’ natural way to detox, so a weekly hot yoga class could be just what your body needs this season.

Epsom Salt Baths

Epsom salt baths are great year-round, but they’re particularly beneficial in the cold winter months. Epsom salt is full of magnesium, which is imperative in improving sleep and digestion. A nice, warm Epsom salt bath can relax your muscles, reduce inflammation, relieve stress and tension, and detoxify your body. Plus, it just feels heavenly.

Golden Milk Lattes

Coffee, tea and hot cocoa are classic go-tos in winter months, but this year, try swapping one out for a Golden Milk Latte. It’s easy to make at home, and you get all the incredible benefits that turmeric has to offer. It’s loaded with antioxidants, helps reduce joint pain and inflammation, aids digestion and can help lower your blood sugar. Check out our favorite yummy Golden Milk recipe here.

Scheduled Meditation

Meditation is one of those wellness habits that is easy to blow off if it’s not penciled into your schedule. Make it a point to schedule at least five minutes of meditation each morning or night. Plan your activities around your routine and you’ll find everything feels a little bit more streamlined and manageable.

Warm Oil

A daily warm oil massage can prevent dry, rough winter skin. Don’t worry, I’m not saying you have to head to the spa each day. After showering, apply about 1 ounce of warm oil to your skin like moisturizer and slowly massage it over your joints. Your skin will thank you, and it will also help calm nerves and support sleep while reducing tension.
