5 Nuggets of Ayurvedic Wisdom

Inspiring you to be an active participant in your journey towards balance and wellbeing.



Introduction

What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old science and holistic healing system known as "The Science of Life (or Longevity)". While there is much to learn about Ayurveda, you don't need to know it all in order to access its healing benefits. Ayurveda can help you:

  • Connect with the nature around you and within you

  • Honor your uniqueness

  • Develop your strengths & hone in on your challenge areas

  • Discover the true meaning of balance, or harmony in body-mind-spirit

  • Prevent illness and support your overall wellbeing

  • Take an active roll in your health

Ayurveda is a beautiful system that can support all areas of your life. It honors your unique makeup and encourages you to take part in your life's journey and to get to know yourself better.


Here are 5 nuggets of Ayurvedic Wisdom that you can bring into your life, today:


1. Good Digestion is the Key to Health

Herbal teas are the traditional method helping the body absorb nutrients and get rid of toxins. Try drinking CCF Tea before, during, or after meals to support digestion.


2. Like Attracts Like; Opposites Balance

At the heart of the Ayurvedic approach to wellness is the idea that like attracts like, and opposites balance. For example, if you are a person who is typically hot natured, living in a hot climate in the middle of summer, you're likely to experience an aggravated hot quality (perhaps feeling irritated, short tempered, or experiencing acidy). To balance, go for coolness in the form of herbs & food (think peppermint tea and cucumber), cool showers, and slowing down your movements.


3. A Daily Routine will serve you greatly

Bring in just one or two Ayurvedic practices at the beginning or end your day to feel more grounded, stable & harmonious. Try cleansing your tongue upon waking, practicing yoga or meditation daily, having a cup of tea at the same time every day, or massaging your feet and/or body with oil before bed.


4. Make Sleep a Priority

Sleep is a challenging aspect of many peoples' health, but this is an important time for the body and mind to consolidate information, rest, digest & restore. Ayurvedic methods, like the tips above, can help you calm your nervous system and find more consistency in your sleeping patterns. For example, sipping a Golden Milk latte plus a self-massage before bed can help prepare your body and mind for a restful sleep. Taking a few mindful breaths and feeling your body sink into the bed can also help you surrender at the end of the day.


5. You have a Unique Body-Mind Type

Ayurveda says that we are all made up of 5 elements of nature (air, space, fire, earth, water), each of us with a unique combination of these elements (your dosha). Honor your uniqueness and listen to your body. We encourage you to find out what is your dosha. There are many quizzes online, but the most accurate results come from an Ayurvedic doctor or consultant.



It's important to remember that nothing happens all at once. Ayurveda is a way of life that can help you own and celebrate your capacity for wellness! So if you have felt overwhelmed with the idea of Ayurveda, keep it simple and start small. Set an intention to be kind to yourself & celebrate small wins. We all fall off the horse at times and that's OK. The quality of your mind and thoughts about yourself and others is SO important for your health, so take a deep breath and smile -- you are perfectly imperfect and that is what makes life so beautiful.
