"Because we cannot scrub our inner body, we need to learn a few skills to help cleanse our tissues, organs and mind. This is the art of Ayurveda." - Sebastian Pole
On this week's podcast episode, Jessie digs into some Summer Ayurveda tips to celebrate the Summer Solstice and keep Pitta's fiery energy pacified over the next few months. Summer can bring a whole slew of sluggish symptoms like fatigue, irritability, poor digestion and dehydration. How can we use cooling foods and lifestyle practices to help create a more balanced mind, body and soul?
Want to take action? Heck Yeah!
1️⃣ Lean into cooling foods like melon, berries, cucumbers, leafy greens and high water content foods.
2️⃣ Avoid heat inducing practices like hot showers, hot beverages and spicy foods.
3️⃣ Try moving your body when the sun is at its lowest - before 10am or after 7pm
4️⃣ Give yourself permission to slow down and enjoy some lazy summer days
