During my yoga training we learnt about the Ayurvedic approach to health and wellness. The key thing I took away from Ayurvedic teachings is that we are all individual. There is no one size fits all solution when it comes to supporting our emotional and physical health.
We each need to consider our personal constitution, age, surrounding climate and season. With the southern hemisphere fast approaching Winter, have you tweaked your wellness routine? With the cooling weather, you will notice something deep inside pulling at you to slow down? Acknowledge it and honour it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Find some time to make some tweaks to your diet, sleeping patterns, social activities and exercise regieme. What we need will differ from person to person, that's why it is important to cultivate some time in your day and/or week to check in with how you are feeling. Reflect and think critically about your routine. Is it giving you all you need for this moment in time?
Since being in Singapore, I've had to completely overhaul how I eat, exercise, supplement and care for my skin. I'm craving cool, light foods and have noticed my appetite has decreased significantly, smoothies and salads are all I managing to get down the hatch. I'm drinking at least 4 to 5 litres of water a day to combat the truckloads of fluids I am loosing in sweat. The heat is exhausting and I have started taking mito max daily to support energy levels. I'm doing a stack of walking and spending a lot of time in the pool. My skin is producing a lot of oil, the only additional hydration I am needing is Yarrow|Pom in the evening.
