This winter has been a learning curve for wellness but hopefully by next year we will have it figured out!
We’ve been having many conversations in our household lately about “wellness”. It all started from the discussion about where our food comes, what we need to consume to fuel our bodies, making healthy choices when preparing food & how we dispose of our waste. Trying to encourage our children to make the right choices. We’ve now implemented the guidelines of eating the rainbow. That seems to have stuck ;) We’ve had ample discussions about how when we return home we need to wash our hands.
Due to cold & flu season we can’t afford to not be mindful of this task. Of course, a toddler’s imagination runs wild picturing the germs all over her hands. (At least it works!) Thank goodness for essential oils & a diffuser. Taking care of our body in winter vs. summer. Explaining how our skin dries out & needs more moisture. We’ve loved our Green Beaver calming lavender lotion as well as lip balm. This winter has been a learning curve for wellness but hopefully by next year we will have it figured out!
