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.
Yesterday I posted on my Instagram feed on how I have been feeling a little uninspired lately. I guess it's all part of the process. Finding the beautiful in the mundane isn't a terribly easy thing to do, especially when the mundane has been the same scene for quite some time now. Where are we? Like week 9? 10? Is anyone keeping track anymore?
We've finally reached the 80s in New Mexico. I couldn't be more grateful. I am an outdoors girl through and through, and the weather is perfect for this southern girl to bask in.
Routine these past few weeks have been better. Despite the fact that I know I'm doing them, I legitimately feel better. This is just a testament to the wonder and beauty of Ayurveda. Being able to find grace for myself has become easier, and again I can attribute that to my routines. (I've written numerous times about why routines are so important, so check it out here!)
