Welcome to SEASON 3 of The Honest Mom Podcast! Today we talk about the difficult season of winter and getting a new outlook on this important and much needed season of our year. Our lives. Listen to the episode HERE  I’ve done research and soul-searching to get out of my SAD that I’ve had every year because it affected me SO much. With being in the midwest, the winter season can feel like an eternity so I had to get my life back. On top of it, Brooklyn was born during a massive snowstorm in February 2013 and then we were trapped in our home and boring lives for the winter season. So I had to come to terms with the bad memories I had during that winter season. How I associated winter with that time when I was so depressed.

This episode was also inspired by a yoga workshop I’m hosting at the studio I teach at. We’ll be having a wonderful discussion about the purpose of winter and how to SLOW THE F DOWN to honor what this time is all about. To make it OK to find some stillness and not be GO-GO-GO all the damn time. We will be having a toasty and cozy Restorative Yoga practice in the salt room of the studio full of blankets, warm tea, and the permission to CHILL OUT. If you’re local to Geneva, get on the waitlist for this event!

These are a few of my favorite things: The Ayurveda Experience products: www.theayurvedaexperience.com I use their Yauvari Amplified Youth Spring facial oil, Keranya Pure Black Seed Potent Hair Potion, Manjish Glow Elixer nighttime facial oil, and Trahnna Heart Leaved Moonseed body oil. I also love their lip balms. What is Ayurveda? Well, in a nutshell, it’s the ancient Science of Life, a holistic science of health & wellness, and originated over 5,000 years ago in India. Think of it as the sister science of Yoga.
