Hello, friends! We wanted to connect and wish you a happy and healthy transition into the fall season. Below are some tips to get you off to a good start. Thanks and we hope to see you soon!

1. Start moving inward
Autumn is a great time for reflection. Meditation and yin yoga are great practices to incorporate into your day. They will draw your attention inward and put your mind at ease.
2. Receive acupuncture and bodywork
These modalities help to support immunity, fight allergies, boost energy and mood, improve sleep and deal with stress. Don't forget, you can use them to prevent illness or to shorten the duration of a contracted illness.
3. Get moving in the morning
Starting your day with movement will help to balance out the seasonal changes that often impact the mood. Take your exercise outdoors for some fresh air and fall colors. Choose an activity that you enjoy and commit to it. Most importantly, move and have fun!
This recipe is for a single cup, but we also make large batches of this throughout the fall and winter. Use all raw ingredients, if possible, and let them cook for 35-40 minutes. Add the lime and cayenne for the last 5 minutes of cooking time. Drink throughout the week and use preventatively!
Enjoy the autumn bounty: squash, pears, apples, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, apples, and more! These foods are helpful in getting you to root down and ground in. Begin to eat more warming spices and relish in savory seasonal soups and stews.
6. Stay connected to community
Nourish your relationships by initiating gatherings. Maybe commit to going to one yoga or fitness class per week. Lift your spirit by enjoying some local live music or other form of performance art. Invite friends and family over for a potluck or tea. Find fun in friends and family!
