Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour.
The winter season holds the perfect antidote to the fast-paced mobility of the summer and fall. This is a time to rest, reflect, hold space, vision, hibernate, withdraw some of our outwardly-focused energy and redirect it inward.
Winter season also brings low temperatures, freezing rain and snow, a significant drop in humidity and dry cold winds in most parts of the country. All media news and health warnings make winter a season of flu, colds and coughs, contagious diseases.
There is a overall sense of heaviness, increased moisture due to rain or snow and a slow feeling that sends many animals into hibernation.
These are all qualities shared by Kapha dosha, which is why winter could be considered a Kapha season in our beautiful British Columbia but in the rest of the Canada where the climate is exceptionally cold and dry, Vata will also be a strong component to take into account.
According to Ayurveda winter is the best season to strengthen and improve immunity. Infections and colds are the results of a weak immune system. Viruses are seeds that look for fertile land, such as a weakened body, to take root.
This season, let us adopt a routine that allows you to relish rather than resent the darkness and the quiet.
