Imagine embracing the onset of the cooler months in a state of calm and vitality. As the leaves change colour, it’s tempting to curl-up on the couch, reach for comfort food and hibernate.

One of the keys to our well-being is quite simple – eat seasonally and locally (you can’t beat a farm gate or farmers’ market).  Get into those nourishing good fats such as omega-rich butter, avocado and nuts. Sleep is also vital, and there is no better place for a siesta than in the quiet, country air snuggled up in a B&B.

Allowing ourselves to slow down and enjoy regular treatments helps balance us. When people think about Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges, they associate it with relaxation and peace. The lush green rolling hills offer an escape from the city grind, in a region that boasts many places to rejuvenate.

One such place is Daylesford Healing Massage, with its range of treatments and packages to uplift and nurture, including energetic healing – popular when there is change in season. The experienced and intuitive therapists focus on the mind, body and soul, and internal beauty with all their clients. Treat yourself and embrace the cooler seasons.
