February has come and gone like it always does. Concept of time makes no sense to me, as some things go by so fast and some things go by so slow. As I reflect back on this past month, I'm auditing all the places where I was compassionate and filled with love. How did I handle certain situations--was it with grace as I promised myself I would, or with annoyance and rigidity? I want to compare my actions with the intentions I set forth at the beginning of the year.
I'm here to talk about winter weight--that dreaded extra 5-10 pounds that seem to magically appear despite an otherwise normal diet. There's a reason that happens, and it's just a matter of our bodies syncing with nature's circadian rhythm. I'm also here to tell you that it's okay! And there are some things in Ayurveda we can do to help stave it off, or at the bare minimum keep our digestive capacity high.
One month is officially over in 2021. I have to admit, it wasn't as slow as it usually is. Maybe I have a more renewed sense of life. I hope to share my monthly thoughts with you guys this year, as I want to be more intentionally reflective. So, I guess this is part brain dump, part reflection, part things that I loved, and part things I'm looking forward to in the upcoming months. Let's go!
