Sleep, Gut health and Purpose
It's time to align with Summer for us here in the southern hemisphere. To avoid burn out as the year heats up in busy-ness as well as temperature, follow the below guidelines:
Below are three key areas to pay attention to, so you can set your health journey straight:
When you decide to eat and drink with the aim of nourishing your body, you'll be rewarded with a clear mind, and an energised body. Every substance you take in through your five senses whether it be hot or cold, soft or hard, rough or smooth, will affect your body, so only take in what it wants and needs right now. Don't know? Ask it! 'Hey, body what do you want right now?' soon enough it will show you. Still not sure? I can help you find clarity - feel free to shoot me an email here
REST for Vata's sake!
Factor in a lie on the floor for 15 minutes a day at least, to ground and reset during this time of year. Your mind and body are integrated, so when your whole being engages in your day, you'll feel great and make better decisions to take things forward.
Allow yourself space to heal anything that's bothering you - you want to rid Ama, toxic residue, before it becomes an ailment. There is nothing worse than being crazy busy then crashing while you're on holidays and want to enjoy life!
Your nervous system is categorised as a Vata type system and it loves and needs a lot of time to lull and rest. Allow the time and space to do so and you will benefit from increased immunity. A vata imbalance in Prana, movement, and nerves lies behind so many ailments. Get this one right by hydrating and resting and breathing and you're set to go.
So you'll be feel a sense of extra duty right now. Don't worry, we do to. Time is another Vata type principle and one which lies behind everything - influencing the subtle to the not to subtle. Set your own space and time. Literally write it in the calendar and honour your promise to your body, by sticking to it so you achieve your goals while remaining steady and feeling well. That's real success.
