Spring is the beautiful season of vibrant colors, joy and celebration. It is also the season of dynamic energy, when nature blooms and flowers around us, birds migrate to warmer regions and many animals spring from hibernation. Spring is a season of physical and emotional burst of energy and around the world many countries celebrate the oncoming of the season with festivals.
For many of us however, the transition from winter to spring can be a bit difficult and not as graceful as nature’s transition around us.
The qualities of spring are warm, moist, gentle, and unctuous and just like warmth melts the accumulated snow and ice of winter, the increased warmth in our body starts to loosen and liquefy the accumulated phlegm in the body.
We often find ourselves feeling heavy, sluggish, and perhaps experiencing the aggravated symptoms of allergies, colds, coughs, and even emotional dullness.
According to the science of Ayurveda these symptoms are a common phenomena and understanding this cycle of nature and living in rhythm with the nature according to the season helps us prevent the common imbalances that occur. And most important, listen to your body – signs and symptoms are its way of communicating with you.
Just as you dress for the season, spring clean your home and make space for the season, we encourage you to eat and exercise for the season, bringing you closer to the balanced rhythms and cycles of nature.
Remember, that what you do today becomes the cause of your health or imbalance for tomorrow, so please take care of yourself today.
Eat healthy natural foods and choose to live a healthy balanced lifestyle.
Remember to self-nurture!
