It can be the little things that light us up and make us feel nourished...
The daily habit of checking in, quietening our minds and listening to what we really need, can go a long way in helping us to feel centered instead of scattered, fulfilled instead of running on empty.
Ayurveda teaches us the art of self care and how to be in tune with the rhythms of nature. We can learn to replenish, through supportive lifestyle choices for our own unique dosha, choosing nourishing food and drawing upon the foundation of our daily routine.
What are the little things that ‘light you up’ and make you feel nourished throughout your day?
You could enjoy a simple morning walk, breathing in the fresh air, or write in a journal to clear your thoughts. Meet up with family and friends or go shopping locally for the freshest ingredients and connect with your community. Do or say something kind to show that you care. Make the time to relax and unwind at the end of your day with a soothing bath...
I am always in awe of how a change of scenery can also work wonders to lift our spirits and renew our vitality in unexpected ways. Whether it be through taking a holiday, a short weekend break or just factoring in some space during the day to reconnect to what is important to you.
Replenishing is a necessity for us all to feel at our best.
Restorative Mung Bean Soup
Warm and satisfying for Autumn ...
This soup was inspired by 'Kicharee' which traditionally includes basmati rice.
This is a slightly lighter alternative whilst still capturing that deeply nourishing taste.
Mung beans are full of protein,and when cooked with digestive enhancing spices, provide both restorative and cleansing benefits.
