Welcome to the February, 2023 Harmony Way Newsletter!


In New England, February usually brings a lot of heavy, wet snow (and sometimes rain), more cold days and slightly brighter, longer days than December and January. True spring still won't likely be for a couple of months; so enjoying the snow or doing indoor activities are still popular at this time of year. This month is also the shortest of the year, which means less time to wait for spring for those who miss the warmer growing season. ;) If you haven't already, it's a terrific time to plan a garden and order seeds for this year!


Whatever your plans are this month, I hope they are lots of fun and bring you joy while supporting your physical, mental/emotional and spiritual health.

This Month's Exercise Demo:

Group Exercise Class


(From: Up to the BEat Fit)


Walking is a great workout that is proven to help with everything from maintaining a healthy weight to being a type of exercise that can help to protect our muscles and bones as we age. It's appropriate for most people, regardless of fitness level. This is a fun, simple workout to try.



*Always check in with your medical health provider for advice and guidance before starting a new workout program, being mindful of any existing conditions or injuries that you have, discussing these with a qualified medical professional prior to trying any workout.




This Month's Wellness Articles:

Reiki


(From: NPR)




Above are two articles to learn from and enjoy. The first can be applied anytime we are looking to make and continue with consistent healthy changes in our lives. The second is an evidence-based article about pollution and its link to asthma, specifically in urban environments. More children than ever before in this country have been diagnosed with asthma. Medical professionals and scientists agree that a large part of this is due to specific environmental pollutants in the air contributing to challenges with breathing, especially in cities. Both articles above are interesting, beneficial reads.



This Month's Yummy Recipe:

Vegan Bolognese Sauce


(From: Sweet Potato Soul)

Gluten-Free, Vegan, Nut/Peanut-Free


Will the wonders of chickpeas never cease? Honestly, I hope not! If I had to pick a favorite bean, it would be chickpeas. They are so versatile, tasty and filled with minerals and wonderful nutrition, such as magnesium and protein. However, all legumes are extremely nutrient-dense and beneficial to include in our eating habits, from peas to lentils to other types of beans. I have seen many "mock tuna" recipes, some with chickpeas and some without them. This one is extra yummy and healthy with the addition of carrots. The recipe can be adapted to be completely nut-free (just use a nut-free cheese and mayo) and gluten-free (simply sub for your favorite gluten-free bread), depending upon your needs. Sweet Potato Soul has some delicious and nutritious recipes on their blog that are pretty simple to make. If you try this one, I hope you like it!

PS Winter is a time for rest, comfort and coziness. With all the busy-ness of our lives, it is important to incorporate "deep rest" into our day/week/month as often as we need this. Deep rest is time spent doing whatever feels nourishing to your body, mind and spirit without having to accomplish anything/get things done. Simply relaxing or doing whatever makes you feel centered and balanced is all that is required. You're worth it!
