Ayurveda is an ancient healing system that focuses on bringing balance to all aspects of a being. When the world was creating a state of panic, I’ll admit – my anxiety was intense, to say the least…
I felt like I was losing my sense of Self to fear.
It’s a tricky thing…fear.
It can overtake your mind, if you aren’t aware.
And before you know it – you’re living your life from that state of fear.
Instead of your natural state – which is living through pure love and bliss.
I was able to differentiate between my authentic Self and my mind being fueled by fear & anxiety.
I had to ask myself:
1) Why am I losing sight of Self over something I CAN’T control?
2) What CAN I control in this very moment?
I chose to release that which I cannot change and took control over my mind.
I got back my power by changing my perspective from this being a scary situation, to it being a moment to better myself.
I also relied heavily on Ayurveda to help me be active even in an actionless time.
Hopefully, my routine and tips can help your day-to-day.
Routines are big with Ayurveda…
Certain “mind-body” types [determined by your DNA] thrive with consistency, so a lack of routine can completely throw them off balance physically, mentally &/or emotionally.. [like myself 😔]
Determining a new routine and incorporating daily has created stability for me during these times.
My list has been ALL about SELF-CARE!
Below are some things that I’ve personally been doing to hold my power, stand strong and care for my body, mind and soul! ✨
** Ayurveda puts emphasis on specific time frames – [the concept is that there are three energetic forces that govern and influence our inner & outer environments throughout the day – movement, transformation, and structure.][I try to follow along with the “Ayurvedic Clock” so these energies will assist in specific tasks.]
I love having the space and flexibility to feel out all of my emotions, thoughts and ideas throughout the day… I do what I feel I need to physically and mentally process these uncertain times we’re in – [it allows for those inevitable slips in vibration – that sometimes we just can’t control…]
But with a routine, we have that reminder to come back, take control and focus on the tasks we need to move forward with life.
Thanks so much!
