    New Year's Day may sometimes seem like an arbitrary date upon which to begin counting the new year, or taking on a new outlook, and in some cases a new life, but its seemingly random celebration is rooted in history and follows soon after the marking of the Winter Solstice, a day of equal day and night.

    We live in an age when multi-tasking is not just the norm, it is expected. In fact, we are rewarded for the speed and efficiency with which we complete projects.

Whichever holidays you celebrate, Ayurveda can help you make the best of them and enjoy them to their fullest by rejoicing in health, wellness, and vitality. While some of these blogs focus on various holidays throughout the year, most of these blogs were written with the bustling (and often stress-inducing) holiday season of Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day.

The holiday season means something different for every one of us, but we could probably agree on some similar themes. For many of us, this season often comes with large gatherings, connecting with friends and loved ones, big meals, events, shopping, and maybe even travel—and while we may (or may not) love the hustle and bustle, there’s undoubtedly more stress for the body and mind.

Luckily, Ayurvedic principles can help you make the most of this season on all levels, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Whether you’re looking for ways to be more present, stay healthy, stress less and enjoy more, or how to set intentional (and realistic) goals for the new year, Ayurveda has you covered.

Additionally, if you’re looking for good holiday gifts for loved ones—or for yourself—we have entire gift guides to make holiday shopping easy and fun. These wellness blogs and gift guides will help you navigate through the holiday season with grace so that you can enjoy this time of year to its fullest.

These articles are designed to help you through some of the most stress-inducing aspects of holidays by providing:

  • A gift guide, complete with ideas for good holiday gifts for everyone in your circle—from Ayurveda enthusiasts with a passion for yoga to the Ayurvedic newbie still learning about vata, pitta, and kapha. Celebrate the health of your loved ones this holiday season with Ayurvedic gifts from the heart. As an added bonus, we have a whole gift guide dedicated to self-care for you (after all, you’ve earned it!). We also want to affirm that not all gifts have to cost money—which is why we also created our list of mostly free gift ideas.
  • Articles focused on how to be present during the holidays, as well as how to manage the stress and hectic nature that often accompanies festive events and celebrations. Learn how to minimize stress while traveling, preparing meals, shopping for gifts, and more.
  • Recipes for holiday-themed meals and drinks made with organic Ayurvedic herbs and spices. These tasty, easy to make, and even easier-to-enjoy recipes have all been put together using ingredients carefully curated to support your well-being at various times of the year. From savory snacks to healthful desserts, the meal offerings presented to you in this category of blogs will help you bring in the cheer without sacrificing your health and wellness.
  • How to make the new year better for you with ideas for planning and sticking to your resolutions. Planning resolutions for the new year can feel daunting, especially if you’ve had trouble following through with your resolutions in the past. We offer tips to help you set realistic, sustainable intentions that empower you to follow through for a successful, thriving year ahead.
