Let That Shiitake Go: 3 Self-Care Strategies You Can Implement Today
1. Enjoy a Warm Meal 🍜
A warm dinner is good for the stomach and the soul. Try out these cozy recipes to bring a little more comfort to your typical mealtime routine.
- Wild Rice and Mushroom Stuffed Squash, a warm entree perfect for the stomach and the soul.
- Green Bean Casserole, Farmer Elizabeth's creative spin on a classic.
- Mushroom Barley Soup , a scrumptious recipe from our friends at Verrill Farm.
2. Remember to Breathe 🧘
Breathing regulates our nervous system, calming our brains and bodies. Take five minutes today to breathe. Perhaps you will gain some new perspective on a problem you have been working through.
One of our favorite breathing techniques is breathing in for 4 seconds, holding the breath for 7 seconds, and breathing out for 8 seconds.
While you're breathing, put this marvelous Mushroom Meditation in the background! Special thanks to our friend Suzanne Eaton!
3. Take Time to Rest 🛋️
With the cool weather, our bodies are naturally inclined to spend more time resting and enjoying the warmth of our homes.
Challenge yourself to spend an extra few minutes each day honoring this need for rest. Catch up on a favorite show, take a nap on your couch, or cuddle up with a pet.
