As we approach the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, it’s the perfect time to cosy up at home and nest. Take yourself on a mini winter retreat without leaving your home. In nature everything shuts down in winter, to rest and restore, ready to burst forth with fresh new energy in Spring. In winter it’s okay to move at a slower pace and generally be less productive. You might also find your body is craving more sleep. Make the most of nature’s designated ‘down time’ and set the scene for solitude with yours truly. We’ve put together our ultimate list of winter warming treats and tips to keep your cosy all season long!
