Live the yoga lifestyle every day

December 21 brings us Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year and a time to celebrate Nature’s New Year! Today, we get catapulted into a new season and with it, come so many good things.

What is Winter Solstice?

Winter Solstice marks the first day of winter, or, the official beginning of astronomical winter. This is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, and on this day, our planet is tilted as far from the sun as possible

While we celebrate it for a whole day, the official solstice lasts but a moment. All the nitty gritty details can be found in this awesome article from the Farmer’s Almanac!

We take the day to celebrate the changing of the seasons and soak in all the good energies this day brings.

How to Celebrate

There are different ways of celebrating everywhere you look. Really, it all means that we take the time to acknowledge this wonderful day full of change, reflection and new beginnings.

It’s the perfect day to

  • write a gratitude list
  • take a walk in nature
  • create a vision board or a dream board
  • break out the Tarot Cards
  • ask the oracle cards
  • write a note to a loved one
  • hang a Christmas Wreath
  • wear your crystals
  • light a candle
  • sit in meditation

and, it’s the perfect day to release & let go. Release what no longer serves you and soak in the wonderful energies of change.
