Seasonal Soundtrack

Uplifting Anthems


Listen to the 2019 personal care playlist.

Summer is a time for skin care and soaking up a little more vitamin D. It’s a time for outdoor recreation and family vacations. And this summer, you might also spend time admiring the healing power of the vibrant world around you. Prune plant parts for fresh, nourishing tinctures. Try a therapy centered in sound waves, or Traditional Chinese Medicine to beat the heat. Everything is at the height of life during the summer, and you should be, too.

Ditties for Your Dwelling


Listen to the 2019 healthy home playlist.

With 90 percent of our time said to be spent indoors, we want those enclosed environments to be as healthy as possible — especially when it come to our houses, and therefore, our family’s well-being. From cleaning supplies to chemical-free fabrics, or new projects and updated practices, try replacing the products in your house with homemade, sustainable, or toxin-free alternatives. The safer and healthier you know your home to be, the more comfortable you’ll feel in it.

Planting Playlist


Listen to the 2019 gardening playlist

While we all love the smell of plants returning to life and the feel of warm soil, sometimes we forget that gardening isn’t just about bringing healthy food to our tables. It also offers opportunities to connect deeply with nature: its first green shoots, its needs and cycles, and its steady growth as we tend to the plants that bring life to our doorsteps. Admire the life in your garden this year, and never take for granted this precious way you can intentionally interact with your environment.

Songs for a New Start


Listen to the 2019 new year playlist.

During the new year, we often find ourselves stuck on achieving one specific objective, such as practicing yoga, and lose sight of our goal — better health. As soon as we’re discouraged by a missed class or unhealthy indulgence, we give up altogether. This year, think broadly about your resolution and set simple steps to meet it. Better health is realized in many ways, and setting attainable objectives will help you stay engaged with your goal and feel successful as the year progresses.

Holiday Harmonies


Listen to the 2018 holiday playlist.

The winter holidays grow more commercialized each year, with endless depictions of social-media-worthy décor, flawless meals, and mountains of presents. But trying to pull off this perfect party often results in more stress than joy. This year, don’t let shopping and prepping overshadow the delight of gathering with friends and family. Cook, craft, celebrate, and give back together, and remember that the time you spend with those you love this season means more than any physical gift.

Songs for the Kitchen


Listen to the 2018 real food playlist.

There's more to food than what ends up on our plates. For us, healthy eating includes harvesting with our own hands, preparing food in a place we love, being creative with what we consume, and, of course, sharing the harvest with others. In this season of bounty, healthy eating should extend outward from our plates to our friends, neighbors, and communities. Nutrition is meant to be shared, and inviting others to partake is surely the best way to eat well.

Songs for Self-Care


Listen to the 2018 personal care playlist.

Personal care is about more than finding time to meditate or pamper yourself. Watch your physical health by exercising when you can and by eating healthy, balanced meals. Improve your mental health by surrounding yourself with those who support you and by finding joy in everyday moments. Better your long-term health by avoiding toxins in everything from deodorant to makeup. It all counts when it comes to self-care.
