Top 10 Winter Self Care Tips

The festive period can be a stressful, heavy time of year for many. So read on for Laura’s top tips for keeping the season light and bright.

One of my favourite winter past times is lighting the fire and taking the time to meditate or listening to a relaxation clip all wrapped up in a cosy blanket. I really have learnt to love the shorter Winter days where the energy of nature is just so still and peaceful. I love to marinade in that feeling and remember that these months too shall pass.


Lauras Top 10 Winter Self Care Tips

1. When days feel stressful take yourself off somewhere quiet and lie down with your legs resting up a wall.
2. Don’t feel duty bound to say yes to too many social engagements. If you don’t want to go, don’t go!
3. Make sure you get plenty of fresh air, even if the weather isn’t the most favourable step outside and move.
4. Load your Christmas dinner plate with green veggies first, then top up with the goodies.
5. Take time to do some journaling, reflect on the year that has past with kindness.
6. Create a photo book of adventures and loved ones from 2023.
7. Make time for fun. I struggle with this but I will make a big effort to play board games.
8. Take a Boxing day dip. There are organised dips all around the UK and I will be in Deganwy, hopefully dipping there with the family.
9. Browse The Zest Life calendar for 2024 retreats, and book yourself some time to recharge and restore with us.
10. Practise self care – taking long baths, reading in bed, lighting a candle are all such winter joys.
