An Ayurvedic Approach to Healthy, Balanced, Natural Living {The Mix}

5 Ways to FInd Your Happy Every WeekAn Ayurvedic Approach to Healthy, Balanced, Natural Living | #TheMix

With the arrival of autumn, the time change, the chill in the air, and the holidays fast approaching, I’ve been running on empty.  So I’ve been attempting to make more of an effort to take better care of myself.  To rest more, eat more mindfully, practice yoga and meditate more often, and to give myself a daily dose of self-love.  An Ayurvedic oil massage, a rejuvenating and nourishing facial, a good book – these are my medicines.  These are the tools I use to get my body, mind, and spirit back into balance.

Another tool in my wellness arsenal is Ayurveda.  Though I do not follow a strict Ayurvedic lifestyle, I do try to practice a number of Ayurvedic principles.  Things like trying to eat my biggest meal at lunchtime; switching out my cold morning smoothie for some warm yogurt lassie when the weather turns cool; or trying to get to sleep by 10:00pm so I can rise before the sun does.  What I love about Ayurveda is it’s flexibility.  It’s all about what’s right for the individual – it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to wellness.

So this week’s Mix post is dedicated to an Ayurvedic approach to healthy, balanced, natural living.  Enjoy! ;)
