Yesterday was the start of the Champneys “Seasonal Secrets” cycle, opening with a City Spa Event at Champneys Enfield. Each season will see City Spa Events and resort breaks, all tailored to the season and in line with the Champneys book.
But what is seasonal wellbeing and why is it important? Talking about how we are “disconnected from nature” has become quite a cliche, but it does matter for our health and wellbeing. In the past and in other cultures today, people modify their diets and activities to fit with the season and the weather to optimise health and provent issues from occurring.
Autumn can be a difficult time – each day is a little darker and colder, and there are 6 months of darkness ahead. Low light levels can cause winter blues or Seasonal Affective disorder, low levels of vitamin D can contribute to increased risk of infections and longer term health problems, and coughs and colds become more common.
However, by increasing awareness of the season and taking steps to prevent problems in good time, it is possible to enjoy the “back to school” energy of autumn, starting new projects and exploring interesting new seasonal foods.
