Winter wellness rituals
If you know anything about Nourish and Nest, you will know that the premise of the goods we handcraft and handpick are that they are goods of ritual. And that rituals, however small, can bring joy, beauty and rhythm to our days.
There are rituals that are for the everyday, rituals of celebration, seasonal rituals and then there are the time-honoured (and occassionally experimental) rituals of wellness. The small acts we turn to when we are unwell or just plain exhausted. The rituals that bring comfort and aid our recovery.
As the colder month encroach, sickness can become a little more present. And if, like me, you have a little tribe you're caring for as well as yourself, you might share the experience that nursing unwell little people (especially when you're not feeling 100% yourself) can be overwhelming at times.
Rituals of wellness, whether they be in the care we give ourselves or that which we provide to others can supply solace, comfort and bolstering predictability. And whether we are feeling well or not, isn't that something we all need sometimes?
So, I am going to share just a few of my own personal wellness rituals and would love you to share yours too in the comments if you're so inclined. The following rituals are nothing if not small and simple but that is what makes them easy to incorporate into the daily rhythm.
