The first week of fall has come and gone and the temperatures are cooling down (at least here in the Pacific Northwest). It's time to get out the long pants, the boots, and the sweaters (ooh, and scarves... they are the best!). It's also time to start making soups, specifically the best soup on the planet (we're not biased or anything): Curried Butternut Squash. We would even suggest lighting a fire in the fireplace before making this soup because fire in the fireplace + curried butternut squash soup = cozy bliss.
Many of us spend much of our days in a fairly sedentary position, which has negative impacts on our energy levels, circulation and range of motion. One of the simplest ways to improve all of these factors and to ensure a calm start to the day is to introduce some easy stretches to your morning routine. It doesn’t have to take a lot of time and can reap many health benefits, not least of which is relaxed muscles and mind.
