Ways to Winter Well



Winter can be a hard time for many of us with short, cold days and long, dark nights. This year, however, I am determined to savour it. There is so much beauty in the sparkling frost and silently falling snow, so much sweetness in the cozy warmth of a cup of tea under soft blankets. This season was meant to be a time of rest, rejuvenation, and reflection. This year I want to cultivate that.


Below are a few different ways I've been celebrating winter. I hope they inspire you to find your own ways to savour this beautiful season!
