Let's Natty Chat Blog...
I must admit, when I first starting Learning & Research Ayurveda a few years ago, it really go overwhelming. I then started to minimize and modify what I could implement and do on a regular and consistent basis. I still hit and miss every now and then but for the most part is has been working and I am definitely seeing the benefits. I am still adding to my Ayurveda Lifestyle and still critiquing as I go along and I wanted to share some of my really easy and simple routines that "You" can do as well. Let's take a look....
One of the main things I wanted to do was to start Excercising and what do you know...Walking was actually a part of an Ayurvedic Practice. Ayurveda considers walking a tridoshic exercise because it balances all three doshas without putting excessive strain on your body. Walking works by calming the mind and nourishes the senses. I trying to walk at least five times a week for a 30 minutes. I feel so vigorated and stress free afterwards. This Spring, I plan on beginning a Yogo Regimen; I will definitely let you know how it goes and my thoughts about it.
Another Simple Ayurvedic Practice I do is to Sit down and close my eyes. Taking a "just-for-me" break does wonders for my Mind and Meditation helps me to Connect with my Spirit and Emotions. by disconnecting from the outer world and tuning in to myself. Even if you do this for a minute, you will feel healed. Practitioners of Transcendental Meditation say their daily 20-minute sadhana helps conquer stress and increase positive energy and a sense of well-being.
Another Daily Ayurvedic Practice that I try to do each day is to have a good breakfast. Skipping breakfast particularly irritates Sadhaka Pitta, a subdosha of Pitta. An imbalanced Sadhaka Pitta can result in irritability and unsettled emotions. According to ayurveda, it is recommended that fruits be eaten first thing in the morning, 30 minutes before other breakfast items such as hot cereal; therefore, I try to eat a Banana, Apple, Oranges or Grapes before my Oatmeal in the morning.
Every two weeks, I incorporate an Ayurvedic Hair Regimen for my hair. Caring for my natural coils and curls keeps my hair from become limp and lifeless. I use a DIY Mixture to Detox my Hair and Scalp for 30 minutes, then Prepoo with Coconut Oil, Co-Wash with a Moisturizing Conditioner and use my DIY Ayurvedic Hair Mask (filled with nourishing Indian Herbs and oils) to deep condition. I also use Bentonite Clay and my DIY Rose Clay Mask (coming soon) to Clean and Purify as a Facial Mask.
Last but not least is my Favorite!!! Three times a day, I drink a cup of my own simmered Fresh Ginger and Green Tea mixed with 1 tsp of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. This is Daily (throughout-out-the-day) Concoction that is know to Maintain Blood Circulation, help with Weight Loss, Ease Stomach Aches, Nausea and Heartburn, Prevent and Relieve Cold and Flu, Strengthen Immunity and "BEST" of All...It Relieves Stress and gives me Natural Energy and Feel Good "Bliss".
So there you have it...of course there are more but these are just a few of my Daily Ayurvedic Routines that were easy for me to maintain in-spite of a daily busy schedule.
