How much thought do you put into your daily habits?
In Ayurveda your daily lifestyle is very much part of balancing your health so rather than zoning in on particular foods or movement it focuses on how our daily approach can empower us to live to our fullest. Personally I find when I incorporate even two or three (on a good day) of the below list into my day I seem to focus less on the not/can’t and in doing so naturally make better choices and make more space in my day.
Starting the day with a hot lemon and ginger is now a daily ritual and makes me feel quite smug that I’m supporting my digestion. Small wins people small wins. I’m also often in bed at 10pm but I think that says more about my rock n roll social life.
