Omega Institute 10 Ayurvedic Practices for Winter by Shiva Rea
Self-Care for the Quiet Season
1. Sneha—oiling the body, nose, and ears in the evening is nourishing and fortifying for the muscles and connective tissues. As our bodies are exposed to cold and wind, our pores and fascia tighten and roughen in response. Oiling the orifices of the head helps the sensory pathways stay balanced. Favor kapha massage oil, ashwagandha-bala oil, or sesame oil.  2. Do dry-brushing a few times a week to invigorate the tissues and move stagnant lymph and blood. More

February 2015: In the Belly of the Internet by Eric Francis
February arrives at the depth of winter in most of the Northern Hemisphere, when we live in the shadow of cold, rain, and snow. Within February's first few days lies one of the four high holidays—or sabbats—of the pagan calendar, called Imbolc in Celtic times. Its corresponding holidays are Beltane (or May Day, on May 1 or May 5, depending on your tradition), Lammas (also called Lambess, Lughnasa, first harvest or second planting in agricultural communities, on August 1) and Samhain (also called Halloween, or Day of the Dead, on October 31).

Like a cool breeze or the warmth of a fire, prana and qi are perhaps more easily understood when felt and experienced. More

According to studies, American kids spend half as much time outside today as they did in the 1990s, and more than a quarter of British children spend less than 30 minutes a week (that's less than 5 minutes a day) outdoors.
