The change of the seasons can bring on a lot of changes in ourselves, with us realising it or not, which means that during this time, it’s a great idea to STOP. TAKE A DEEP BREATH and really focus on what you need at the moment.
When autumn arrives, most animals prepare for hibernation, migration or stocking up for winter – leaves start turning all shades of yellow and orange. Because of changes in the length of daylight and changes in temperature, the leaves stop their food-making process. The chlorophyll breaks down, the green colour disappears and the yellow to orange colours become visible and give the leaves part of their autumn splendour. If the change of seasons affects the rest of the natural world so immensely, how could it not affect us?
As a woman, we also have to consider that hormones can affect every part of our lives, no matter what age we are. They can cause problems with energy, mood swings, food cravings, memory, concentration, anxiety, tension and irritability. These are frequently emphasised during times of stress and often, during the change of seasons – as it affects our lives in more ways than we care to admit.
Ask yourself these questions:
What we can all do is turn inward, listen to our needs during this time of shifting into ‘a different gear’, as I’d like to call it. Our bodies & minds operate very differently during the summer and winter. Knowing how yours reacts is hugely important for your wellbeing!
What we can all do is to focus on ensuring our diet is generally balanced and optimised for hormone balance. Okay sure, but how do I do that, I hear you asking!
Here’s a quick 7-step diet checklist:
Gone through the checklist and now worrying about HOW to proceed?
Don’t worry! Here are 3 great ways to implement these positive dietary changes into your daily life.
As you can see from these very concrete examples, ensuring you consume a balanced diet doesn’t have to be complicated. Our needs change with the seasons and so does the list of seasonal produce available to us – let’s connect with nature’s rhythm and listen to what our bodies need in each stage.
Personally, I have welcomed the change in season, hormones and re-shifting the balance in my diet to a more wintery, cold season friendly one that seems to warm me up from the inside.
