You can up-level your self care and how you care for your family everyday with some practical Ayurvedic principles.
When we take an Ayurvedic approach to what we feed ourselves, the sounds we take in, or the type of exercise we do we can develop a positive health cycle that's self-motivated because it's enjoyable and more sustainable. When we have the vocabulary to make sense of what we inherently know is good for us we can do those positive things consistently.
What are you allowing into your system? Choose that which nurtures clarity of body and mind.
Most of us have heard of the Doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) the labels used to classify our foods and even our body types. Consider how the energetics of what you take in through your senses is affecting your nervous system. Choose to allow only what pleases you into your precious body and mind.
The three governing forces of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas (the Gunas) are required to nurture a positive cycling of creation, sustenance and completion. These terms are often used to discuss the quality of the mind.
Too much of any one with lead us astray and the best way is take in mostly Sattvic, with some Rajasic and a little Tamasic things.
Sattvic - wholesome fresh food (eg: vegetables), uplifiting positive music.
Rajasic - stimulating food (eg: coffee, mustard), stimulating movies.
Tamasic - dulling (eg: mushrooms, food kept for days in the fridge), depressing music.
