How can you be kind to your body today?
This month at Hale Pule we have been looking at ways to integrate the Yogic practice of ahimsa into everyday life. Ahimsa translates into kindness, consideration and respect. Think of ahimsa as your North Star, your guiding light - with ahimsa as your reference point, your journey will be more clear and full of joy.
If you take care to weave the qualities of kindness, consideration and respect into your thought processes and your decision-making you are bound to see a big shift in your health, well-being and in your relationships.
In Ayurveda and Yoga the most important relationships of all are those you have with the God of your heart, your mind and your body.
So how can you be kind to your body today? What can you do to treat your digestion with respect?
We have a great suggestion: spiced greens blended with buttermilk. A delicious Ayurvedic dish that heals.
Dark, leafy greens support the body in the detoxification process. Their extractive nature means that they act like a magnet for metabolic toxins caught up in the digestive tract. Pair them with cultured buttermilk - a wonderful natural probiotic - and you have a simple dish that will help to balance your digestion and leave you feeling lighter and brighter.
It's really easy to make your own buttermilk at home - all you need is some (ideally raw) organic milk from a good source, and a starter culture. For more on how to make your own buttermilk, click here.
