The nervous system. In Ayurveda, it's considered the 6th deepest tissue system. We all know that the nervous system is obviously super integral to the functioning of our day-to-day lives. Without the brain or the spinal cord, we literally can't do anything. Unfortunately, our nervous systems tend to take the brunt of a lot of our daily activities. Stress, bad habits, poor diet--all of these take a toll on our nervous systems. When this happens, it can impede on our optimal functioning. It's important to restore and replenish this system so that we can be our best selves.
It's time to fortify our lungs and respiratory tracts. Our lungs are the seat of kapha, and especially right now as we go through the pandemic, it's super important to strengthen them.
As spring approaches and the weather gets warmer, kapha will naturally start to melt in our systems. This leaves us susceptible to lung-stuff. So, how do we fortify and strengthen our respiratory system to maintain optimal health?
Emotions. We have them. They're beautiful. We love them. We hate them. Everything.
They also affect our well-being. How we process, digest, and deal with emotions can manifest in different ways physically in our body.
