Because I live in the Northern Hemisphere, I think of February as a transitional month that bridges the darkness of winter to the brightness of spring. February is a wonderful time to prepare for the upcoming season ahead as well as a time to refresh your mindset; begin to crawl out of the darkness, if you will.
It’s easy to jump the gun and think that spring has arrived when you see the flower bulbs emerging and the arrival of the spring collections on display. You desperately want to start wearing your lighter clothes as you suddenly realize how tired you are of your winter wardrobe or how you’ve grown tired of your cozy ritual of lighting candles and building fires. But hold on, we’re not there, yet! That’s why this month is a perfect time for you to prepare and to get ready for what’s to come. The anticipation of what’s to come will help you through.
As far as BEAUTY + WELLNESS….
February is a great time to tweak and recommit to your self-care routine.

MY 5 FAVORITE WELLNESS TIPS
Do not check your phone until you have been up for 30 minutes, at least.
Scan your body and make note of what you need today to support yourself. IE – A tight back? Make sure to stretch today.
What is your word for the day? Intention, Grace, Joy? Choose one and write it down where you will see it during the day or maybe set a chime to go off several times a day to remind you.
Begin your day with warm lemon water and drink your weight in ounces throughout the day.
Remember to set boundaries during the day. It is one of the best ways we can be kind to ourselves.
