Happy November, Friends!
That special time of year has fallen upon us, where the sweet scent of spice is lingering in the air, the golden orange leaves cast their glow over the city, and coziness envelops us at every turn. It seems as though we've had the perfect autumn season and we couldn't be more grateful. As the days shorten, let's continue to be mindful of taking extra care of ourselves and our loved ones. Take time to hibernate and rest, but also get out in the sunshine, allowing the sun to kiss your rosy cheeks. Reach out to family and friends, eat soul-nourishing food, and spend less time in front of screens. This is a beautiful time of year to slow down and allow love to fill you up. See below for more of our mind/body wellness offerings including an upcoming class by Naturopathic Physician Dr. Karen Benton detailing how to make dietary choices that support your mental and emotional well-being, and our recent blog post about Seasonal Affective Disorder. Wishing you well, friends!
