A Mindful Moment: Golden Milk

Posted by Elise Mitchell on October 04, 2014

An important part of the journey back to health and well-being is to remember how to self-soothe when life is turbulent. At Second Nature, we encourage our clients and students to establish discipline around self-care. Creating comfort in simple, healthy ways is an essential part of that discipline and can be SO much fun to explore! The following recipe is incredibly simple and full of time-tested medicinal properties!!

Enjoy this ancient remedy to soothe and balance the mind and body. Let its warmth, sweetness, and spice give you comfort on cold nights or bothersome days.
