This is how you take your power back! The Self-Care routine you’ll need this winter
by Rainy City Agency on Oct 07, 2021
Winter can be a difficult time, both on our bodies and our minds. Cold temperatures and strong, chilly winds can dry out our skin and lips and the grey skies and short days can be tough for our mental balance and Vitamin D levels. As the seasons change so do our metabolisms, mood, hormones and even sleep patterns. Just as we switch up our wardrobes and welcome the winter season, it might also be a good idea to switch up your self-care rituals with the seasons too.
When it comes to choosing winter self-care rituals and sticking to them, make sure they suit you and your schedule and lifestyle. You don’t have to do everything in this post, just what you have time for and what makes you feel good. Remember that self-care is also about finding peace and not stressing out over trying to cram more into our day.
It’s said that having a morning routine has been shown to decrease stress levels and improve productivity but don’t worry if you’re not a morning person or simply don’t have time. Having a great evening routine can be just as beneficial. Make your winter self-care rituals YOURS.
If you’ve been toying with the idea of self-care for a while, now might just be the best time to finally embrace a wellness self-care routine. Here are some wonderful winter self-care rituals in order to achieve optimum well-being during the colder months.

Get your rest, beautiful! While some might think it’s just a catchy phrase, beauty sleep is a real thing! A well-rested sleep is essential to waking up energized and alert. There are many benefits that come from getting enough sleep, and it turns out, there’s a reason some call it beauty sleep because it's essential for repairing the skin. Our body and our skin, are in repair mode. In other words, nighttime gives our skin the opportunity to recover from any inflammation.
By keeping well hydrated throughout the day, you’re helping your body to perform at its best. Being well hydrated will keep your energy levels up, headaches at bay and can also help with stomach issues. In the winter it’s often easy to forget about drinking water as we’re not as thirsty as in the summer, however staying hydrated will improve your skin in the winter too, making it less dry and cracked
Another great ritual for your body is gentle yoga. A great morning flow will also start to move blood around your body, warming up your system. Setting aside some time for morning yoga or a morning routine can also make you more productive throughout the day.

Less time outdoors means more time indoors and on our devices but make sure you don’t let mindless scrolling eat up your day. Put down your phone once and a while and consciously use that time productively. It can also help to improve sleep patterns and reduce stress as well as overall eye health.
Switching up your self-care rituals can also provide balance and harmony with nature and our surroundings & remember: Self-Care is not selfish!
