This month we face more disruption than usual to our daily rhythms, so it’s important to do what we can to ground ourselves. One of the best ways to do that is to connect with the season (I mean winter, rather than the festive season).
If you can, spend a little time outdoors. Whether it’s a short walk in nature on your days off or even simply stepping outside to breathe in some fresh air during a break at work. And be present to how you see the season unfolding around you. Alarms, timers, rotas and deadlines might run our lives, but we have to recall our biological connection to something bigger – the rhythm of life on our planet. That’s what we can anchor ourselves to through any kind of disruption, chefs.
