Seasonal change can have substantial impacts on our mood and wellbeing. Shorter days with less sunlight and colder weather may lead to feelings of low mood and energy that deserve attention. Light helps to regulate our circadian rhythm, and less vitamin D can lead to low energy and lower levels of serotonin release in the brain.
Inspired by the recent change in season from autumn to winter, this guided meditation by Ana Clouatre allows for reflection about change in our moment to moment experience, and how the recent changes in environment are impacting us. Meditation can allow us to see more clearly just how impermanent things are – whether they be seasons, difficult times, or internal thoughts and emotions. This meditation can be done in a seated posture, or on the move.
