Founders Thoughts on: Winter & Self Love
As Valentine’s Day comes around, I find myself thinking less of chocolate hearts 💝 and romantic dinners, and more about self-love. Taking care of oneself in ways that nourish and sustain me through the dark winter months and beyond.
I’ve been diving into poetry lately. It’s been an incredibly moving and important piece for me to help organize my thoughts and emotions that are sometimes hard to tap into otherwise. Yoga Nidra is also an imperative piece to this, helping to relax both the body and mind.
Wild Geese by Mary Oliver is a poem I find helps comfort me through the darkest days of winter.
Some of us don’t have time for meditation or simply aren’t into it. Baths are a great way to take a timeout for quiet contemplation. Scents of bergamot and elemi in our mineral soak will help lift you to higher grounds.
We all know that moving our bodies makes such a huge difference to our mental health, along with our physical health. In the winter I embrace xx skiing. It’s great exercise, and also allows moments of stillness and connecting back to nature.

These are a few of the things I’ve been doing so far this year, and I hope there is a nugget of inspiration among them for you to mine!
