Conditioning The Body For The Cold
Well, it's finally here - Winter! We are just 3 days away from the Winter Solstice and I can't help but think about the delightful symbolism of light in the darkness up here in the northern hemisphere this time of year. The sun sets earlier and earlier, the sky seems darker each morning and I wonder "how much longer?" - the answer: 3 days! On the Winter Solstice the days will begin to get ever so slightly longer, bringing more light into these cold days.
There is something so refreshing and cleansing about the cold and I'm grateful to live in a place that does get pretty cold. There are many physical changes our bodies have to undergo to get used to colder, wetter, wintry weather and I'd like to give you a few of my "secrets" for getting more cold-weather hardy.
