We’ve been anticipating the longer, brighter days of summer and this July 4 holiday definitely celebrates the essence of being outdoors – we’ll be enjoying picnics and BBQs, playing games, watching parades, and enjoying some downtime.
This week, we ask you to look down at that nourishing plate of food and to savor all of its beautiful colors and textures. Are these ingredients in season where you live? Or are they available to you year-round?
As the longer, warmer days drive us into action, it’s important that we continue to nurture ourselves so we can give more fully to the world. To most people, self-care might involve baths, saunas, yoga, massage, meditation, and other practices that require advance planning or money. How about we pause and instead look to the free and bountiful natural elements for inspiration? In our fast-paced world, we often times forget to access the simple beauty of nature all around us.
As nature bursts to life in the spring, so do our bodies, a perfect microcosm of the world around us. This intense period also brings the release of allergens and pollens, which can trigger histamine reactions for many people. And there lies the perfect formula for seasonal allergies!
Here at Ecopiggy, our team is sharing ideas of how we can naturally support our bodies through allergy season. Our Ecopiggy team would love to share some of our ideas with you.
