Phew! Breathing actually works, hey? The power of staying still and breathing is super underrated. I mean, we live in a a world that keeps us addicted to busy-ness. We try to move as fast as possible to accomplish as much as we can with the least amount of effort. This speed and lack of adherence creates increased vata for everyone as we become totally ungrounded. By the way, putting in effort is also underrated. Books do not get written without effort…just sayin.
Here’s something to remember: When we stop, the world actually doesn’t! The world will keep spinning even if we slow down or stop. Slowing down is necessary. If we keep grounded and consistent our daily practices of good breath, quality food, heartfelt love, sound sleep, and putting in good effort work, that’s enough in a day.
My favorite quote is “There is more strength in surrender than there is in forging ahead.” So this holiday and in the new year ahead, let’s sloooow down and ground.
HeyMonicaB is a blooming resource on Ayurveda. "Ayur-What?!", you say? In a nutshell, Ayurveda (eye-your-vay-duh) is living according to who you are as an individual. Practicing Ayurveda is economical, accessible, logical, and easy to practice once you know the basics. Anyone can do it! I created HeyMonicaB for those of us who believe in the power of the individual and that true health stems from within. Welcome to my heart and my home! I hope you have so much fun learning and creating your best life! Love, Monica B.
