Autumn Newsletter - My Top 5 tips for Autumnal Health

Nicki Edgell

My recent harvest.

With the days beginning to turn autumnal this is the moment to set your intentions for the next 3 months and make a few changes to support yourself and your health. Begin something new, make a commitment to yourself to make a small change to your lifestyle, food choices, exercise regime that would make the biggest difference.

Today is a great day to set those intentions.  Make an appointment with yourself to begin what you decide on.  Write it in your diary - the day and time you will begin!

Here are my top 5 tips for autumn health:

1) Food choices: move towards soups and stews to match the energy of the season.  Use bone broths as the base and add lots of root vegetables, dark green leafy veg, squashes, warming spices, turmeric, ginger, garlic and fresh herbs like parsley, corriander, rosemary.  This sort of food will nourish and support your immune system. Use berries and protein together to make delicious nutritious autumnal antioxidant breakfasts (recipe below).

2) Exercise: If you aren't allowing time in your busy life for classes then begin at home.  Get up from your computer if you use one a lot every 30-40 minutes and do 1 minute strength exercise (like wall pressups, squats, lunges, plank, steps).  And if you are getting plenty of aerobic exercise from walking then add in the strength exercises into your day.  You will know if you are doing strength exercise because it should be uncomfortable! You should feel the lactic acid at the end of the minute. Strength exercise can really help with building up your cellular energy.

3) Sleep: Begin to get to bed earlier and set a bedtime routine to prepare your body/mind for sleep.  Finish your meal at least 2 hours before bed, stop the stimulations of the day like the computer, a tablet, and even TV at least half an hour before bed.  Perhaps include an epsom salts bath 2-3 times a week before bed.  The key is to calm your stress system and mind so that you can get enough restorative hours regeneration overnight. I recommend the sleep products by Nikken cocooning you in nature's frequencies to get a really great night's sleep. I love my sleep system.  (Details of an event where you can experience what this feels like for yourself below.)

4) Hydration: Contrary to belief, being largely indoors over autumn/winter contributes to greater dehydration so support yourself with more water.  As you know I love, use and recommend the pimag water. ( for more info on this lifegiving water).

5) Start a new project, class, study.  Something that you would love to do. Something fun and uplifting for you.  Autumn is a great time for new beginnings and manifesting what you'd love to do with your time.

My advice is to look at each tip and see if there is 1 small thing you could do from each...
