If you believe that wellness is about how you feel, nurture your body, and care for your spirit, then consider how each of the seasons offer an array of opportunities for you to engage in all aspects of your Self.
Spring: Life starts fresh. It is a season of new beginnings. Find your center through mediation and visualize your re-emerging Self — just like spring violets as they push through the soil and burst into bloom. Remake yourself through yoga, hiking or biking in a park, taking culinary classes, or visiting a spa retreat.
Summer: What speaks wellness more than nature? We are called to serene sunrises and sunsets, fresh fruits and vegetables from roadside markets, and beaches with sparkling water that stretches into the horizon. Swim, kayak, sail, or go fishing — find a way to bathe in the warm summer sun and refreshing lakes to exhilarate yourself and lift your spirit.
Fall: This is the season to revel in bursts of color — yellows, oranges, and reds of nature’s autumn palette. Take in the fruits of the season — apples, pumpkins, and squash. Enjoy that last bike ride, hop on a ferry, and bask in the lingering warmth of the sun on your face. It’s time to slow down and recharge from a busy summer. Winter: The season starts with the richness of the holiday season. Pine trees adorned with lights, family gatherings, and shared sumptuous meals.
Winter then settles into stillness — quiet frozen lakes, soft snowfalls, and the gentle swish of cross-country skiers in the woods. This is the time to listen to your heartbeat and the rhythm of your soul. A time for contemplation, for writing, for Self care.
Whatever the season — the beauty and diversity of the county will support and enrich you.
