Be Healthy. Be Happy. Naturally.
Winter up here in the northern hemisphere tends to be cloudy, dark, damp and cold (kapha) and sometimes cold, windy and dry (vata). Ayurveda teaches us that like increases like and that opposites balance, so by adjusting our daily routine and diet we can help ward off common problems that might occur when the weather outside is frightful. An increase of kapha in us might lead to kapha problems like colds, coughs, sinus congestion, weight gain, depression and feeling slow and sluggish. Vata imbalances that we might experience are dry skin, chapped lips, constipation, muscle aches and spasms, spaciness, anxiety and insomnia. So I would like to give you some suggestions on what to do to help keep yourself healthy this winter.
