As many of us have spent more time at home and in our own company over the past several months, perhaps this has encouraged more self-reflection. Have you been prioritising self-care? Do you feel ‘balanced’ and ‘harmonised’ in life? How do you feel from season-to-season, and at different times of day?
Ayurveda teaches us that we’re intimately connected to nature and the qualities and elements around us. Although we’re all made up of the elements earth, water, fire, air and ether, some of us may be more ‘earthy’, whilst others have more ‘fire’ energy in them. Whichever of the elements are most dominant within your body and mind make up your unique ‘dosha’, which refers to your Ayurvedic mind-body type. When you know which dosha you relate to most, you’ll know the best daily habits, foods and herbs to help keep you in balance.
