Wake up February

I often think it challenging for people to meet the fitness demands the media throw at us in January when we are deep in hibernation mode. We are hard wired to slow down in the winter and in my mind January is about as deep as winter gets.
February is a far better time to embrace some new health strategies, such as gently detoxing the system and moving the body kindly towards the spring.
We need to exercise of course but we also need to be kind to ourselves and mindful of our energy at this time of year. We are very good at beating ourselves up and not feeling we are doing enough. Some gentle daily yoga and walking in nature is perfect.
Enjoy watching the spring bulbs poking their heads out of the ground, with many much further on than that in this mild winter.
