I've been playing around with the concept of grace a lot lately, and what this looks like. Really, the practical side of it, the tangible side of it. What does this really look like?
During the summer months, it's important to find various ways to releasing heat instead of just eating ice cream and drinking cold water.
From an Ayurvedic perspective, body heat is governed by the fire element in the body. Fire is embodied by pitta dosha. So, it's important to find ways to let pitta dissipate from the body. Yoga is a great way to release heat from the body, without going crazy and having to stick your head in the freezer every 10 minutes.
The heat has begun. I'm so happy to be able to spend the days outside in the sun. I was raised in the South of the United States, basking in balmy 100 degree days. We've finally hit the mid-80s in Albuquerque. I'm happy we've made it.
With that, I can see my natural food cravings have begun to shift, and how certain foods that were great in the cooler months, now sit weird in my stomach. It's amazing what a little self-awareness can do to your body.
Let's explore the flavors of the summer, and how we can truly enjoy the best of the summer days ahead.
