Lauren's Point of View
When are you most likely to go out of balance and how do you bring yourself back in balance using Ayurveda?
Small shifts applied daily can change your entire world. While Ayurveda can be complexly studied by doctors for lifetimes, its principles can also be easily understood by young children.
While living a demanding life, it can be easy to forgo our health and well-being, but it’s maintaining a simple routine that gives me the foundation I need to support my immunity, confidence, and energy.
I can most significantly notice myself come out of balance when I’m too “on the go,” which looks like running around from meeting to meeting, not stopping to rest, or working too much.
Short meditations, slow walks in the grass, and Nadi Shodhana (Alternate Nostril Breath) are some of the techniques that help me re-enter a state of balance.
What does the future of Ayurveda look like to you?
The future of Ayurveda is bright—and oily! :) In this time of excessive noise, individuals are seeing real wisdom, trust, and command of their own health. Ayurveda is a methodical way to take the reins of one’s health.
What's one Ayurvedic practice anyone can implement to spur change in their life, right here, right now?
The beauty of Ayurveda is that there are so many small things that we can do to inspire immediate change.
For today, I’ll encourage those reading this to take a few minutes before bed and massage their feet. Not only can it help relax us after a long day, but it can lull us into a deep sleep. I like to massage each foot for at least five minutes, and in those winter months, I like using a warming Sesame Oil before putting on some snuggly socks.
