The new year offers up an opportunity to re-view, re-define and re-imagine our lives so that we can make all the changes we need to move towards the best version of our perfectly imperfect selves. We wanted to share some ways to incorporate fresh herbs as part of your practice to distress and move into 2017 with ease and grace.
Infusing water with a combination of fresh fruit and herbs is a great way to nourish your body, like this one with a handful of wild organic blueberries and our fresh organic mint leaves. Taking some deep breathes while taking in the minty aroma can help open up your airway to allow for deeper breath with ease.
Notice how the smell of the mint can be revitalizing and allow the experience to bring you into the present moment. You can add an herb infused water to any meditation or breathing exercise that you want to make part of your practice. Quieting the mind and getting in touch with your breath helps relieve stress and center your thoughts at the beginning and end of each day.
If you are looking for a new way to go deeper into exploring how to get out of your head and into your body, Qoya is one practice of movement as medicine. Being comfortable in your own skin allows you to utilize your body as you true north. Hike, dance, stretch, explore to find new ways that it feels good to move your body and tap into the wisdom living in your bones.
However, you decide to adjust your routine as we move into 2017 we wish you good vibes, good connections and amazing food. We hope to inspire you with fresh recipes to create at home as the saying goes, “you are what you eat”.
Have a healthy, happy 2017 from all of us at North Shore Organic Living.
