Winter Wellness: Cultivating Habits to Invigorate Your Soul

Winter Wellness: Cultivating Habits to Invigorate Your Soul

Winter in the southern hemisphere embodies a more internal season; with less social interactions and more time to be in our own company, to hibernate and to reflect upon our life rituals and surroundings.

At Sahana, we value the serenity and calmness that a slow gentle lifestyle can bring, and we hope this ethos reflects in our clothing and how you feel wearing our garments.

Here are some valuable slow living ways to reflect upon these cooler months … Let’s enter this season intentionally and cultivate habits that can invigorate our souls.

  • Incorporate mindfulness practices into your daily routine, such as meditation or journaling, to cultivate a sense of awareness and intentionality.
  • Practice mindful consumption by making thoughtful purchasing decisions, opting for quality over quantity, and supporting sustainable brands.
  • Reduce waste by embracing the principles of recycling, composting, and minimising single-use items in your household.
  • Embrace minimalism by decluttering your living spaces and letting go of possessions that no longer serve you. Ask the question, “does this bring joy to my life?”
  • Support local farmers and businesses by shopping at farmer’s markets and seeking out locally sourced seasonal and organic produce.
  • Choose sustainable and eco-friendly materials when purchasing clothing, furniture, and household items.
  • Embrace slow cooking and homemade meals, using locally sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible.
  • Connect with nature by spending time outdoors, gardening, or participating in community environmental initiatives.
  • Take every opportunity to take a walk in nature, in the sun or wear your walking shoes, rug up and embrace the winter chill.
  • Practice gratitude and appreciation for the natural world, fostering a deeper connection with the environment and a desire to protect it.

“Winter, the season that blankets the world in a delicate hush, invites us to embrace stillness and discover the beauty within. 

Like a snowflake, each moment holds its unique magic, urging us to slow down, reflect, and find warmth in the quiet corners of our souls”
