Change your habits with a change of Season

A Change of Season

As Mother Nature flows into a new season, so do we. Our skin becomes more dry or perhaps more oily. We dehydrate and perspire more. Cravings build for comfort foods when the temperature drops. Embracing the change of seasons is best when we listen to our intuition and our body signals.

We can begin supporting our selves with a change in our daily routine and habits. It is important to support our immune system as our body adjusts to the change in temperature, longer or shorter days. Often a cold or flu circulates through work or school as seasons change and we are more susceptible to "catching" those germs or we may simply fatigue more easily. 

Key ways to support your health and immune system and glow though any seasonal changes;

  • Rest – getting enough sleep through the night is one of the best things you can do for wellness. Going to bed early enough to let your body unwind, rejuvenate, eliminate – all the things it does as we lay sleeping. Give your self this time to heal and replenish. Allow a little afternoon chill time on the weekend, a sure way to make the weekend feel longer and to let your adrenals have a much needed rest! Sipping on Mayella Rest Easy Tea is a delicious way to create a little time out and help to moderate a busy nervous system, adrenal glands and an over thinking mind.

Australian Wheat Grass

Building your blood chi with Mayella nutritional power blends and wheatgrass capsules to support your acid alkaline rhythms, as a base line for your good health. Keeping your blood oxygenated and fuelled with easily assimilated and highly concentrated nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and with key factors such as Chlorophyll, importantly help to keep your energy levels up and contributing to building healthy blood cells. Now your body has all the right ingredients to adapt and flow with Mother Nature.  

  •  Hydrate, hydrate hydrate – yes its a hot word but to hydrate means to keep your body functions vital on all levels. Clear thinking, performing, eliminating/detoxing. Drinking 1-2 litres a day minimum and if you’ve been reading our earlier posts, spice up your water with a little fresh mint & lemon to keep your self interested!
  • Hearty Soups will nourish you over winter months and there is no end to the ingredients you can throw into a soup! A great investment for winter is a slow cooker. Layer onion, garlic, turmeric root, sweet potato, fennel, split peas, barley, carrots and celery (leaves as well) into your slow cooker with water and perhaps a broth concentrate or simply a miso paste in the morning on low. The aroma when you come home in the evening and the joy of a meal ready to go with some sourdough garlic bread - yes please! Add in a little silken tofu when you serve to create a little creaminess, texture and extra protein.
  •  Skin – exfoliate a little more as your skin adjusts to cooler temperatures. Keeping your skin smooth and breathing free of congestion helps to avoid break out and dull skin. Our Mayella AHA Exfoliating Serum & Lotion are perfect to use as little or as much as your skin requires without overstimulation or irritation. Both will encourage improved moisture levels and stimulate collagen production for healthy smooth skin and help to build skin with immune resilience. Which basically means your skin is less vulnerable to cold sores (herpes), break out, contact rashes, rosacea and redness.




  • Keep your body moving – with changing daylight hours moving from season to season, especially moving into Spring, it easier to jump out of bed and go for a walk or hit the yoga mat. We can be a bit rusty after a long, cold winter so make sure you STRETCH before and after any exercise to avoid injury. Maybe a visit to your local physiotherapist/ naturopath/ massage therapist for an assessment and treatment to get things kickstarted on a practitioner level. Self awareness and regular connection with trusted professional practitioners go a long way to ensuring lifetime health and fitness. And who can say no to a massage to soothe out those tight shoulder and neck muscles? Self care starts right here sunshine! 
  • A smoothie is one of the best and easiest ways to enjoy your vitamins. Enjoy our recipe below for a quick and delicious antioxidant rich Berry - licious smoothie you can enjoy any time of the day. 



 Hydrating Antioxidant Smoothie 

250ml Chilled Natural Coconut Water
1 teaspoon Mayella™  Acai Berry Beautiful
1 banana and/or  pineapple
1/2 Cup Strawberries
Tip: Freeze your fruit to make your smoothie thicker and more creamy. Plus this means you have seasonal fruits available all year round. Adding ice will also make your smoothie more refreshing in the summer months.
Love & light Amanda & Robyn xx
