Health Tip As We Transition from Winter to Spring

As we transition from Winter to Spring, here is a health tip for you.

If you think about it, there are many emotions associated with anticipation and transition.

This exercise can help you process these emotions:

1) Take a minute to become centered and grounded, breathing in and out slowly, bringing your attention to your heart center, and feeling your feet connected to the Earth.

2) Think about a situation that involves anticipating change or transition and identify the feelings that you are experiencing. Take your time with this. As one emotion arises, ask: and what emotion is underneath that? You might be surprised how many emotions are hiding underneath the surface.

3) Continue to breathe, observing the feelings and allowing them to move through you with no judgement.

This is a powerful exercise because it gives you a safe and simple way to process your emotions rather than stuffing them. When we stuff emotions, they build up over time resulting in tension, illness, and emotional distress.

If you’re struggling, call a trusted friend or healthcare provider to help you through the process.

Like a river at winter’s end, melt the ice and let the waters flow.
