    Ayurveda in the Workplace: Avoiding Burnout

    Now, we all need jobs. They are our livelihood and keep the world spinning! We just need to take more breaks. Our minds and bodies can really only focus on a task for 90 minutes. Then they need a pause for replenishment so that we can perform for the next 90 minutes.

    Lunch should be an enjoyable break while we sit outside among the trees or in front of a window blissfully eating our freshly cooked, nutritious meal as a light breeze in our face and the sound of the babbling brook nourishes our entire mind, body, and spirit. I wish!

Many of us do all these things at the same time! The mind appreciates it when we allow it to settle.

    Ayurveda in the Workplace

    We spend most of our waking hours at our jobs, so it's safe to say work is part of life, right? And if Ayurveda is life, then work is technically Ayurveda too. (See that? I took a logic class in college and got a B!) For some of us, work is a place that allows our creativity and spirit to soar. For others, work might be stressful, challenges our ability to eat healthy, leaves us limited time for workouts and gets in the way of our spirit—that thing we really should be doing in life. And for most of us, work is a combination of the "yay, awesome!" and the not-so-awesome.
