The weather is getting colder and the mornings are cooler. Fall is setting in, and we will be spending more time at home. Who says indoor comfort, says cocooning. Is it possible to practice it in an ecological and economical way?
Here are some inspirations from the Vert Essentiel team.
(From the English cocoon)
Definition: The act of enjoying oneself in cozy comfort
When you wake up, give yourself a few extra minutes in bed to do some gentle stretches such as the cat pose or the side stretch.
Sit back and sip your favorite organic and fair trade coffee or tea in a place that is different from your daily routine.
When you are ready to start the day, remind yourself that it will be slower than usual. In appreciation of the slow pace, it feels great!
Plan things to do that will be enjoyable, for the soul and the body. Here are some suggestions to inspire you:
Find a recipe for a comforting casserole, a recipe using seasonal fruits and vegetables and local produce. It’s squash and pumpkin season, soups, muffins and cookies. Let yourself be inspired!
Eat light and in good company. Take more time to eat, without television, and ideally in the company of family members or friends.
