Early morning soft clouds and summer blue sky, I think it’s going to be a summery kind of day. I was intending to write about autumn and Ayurveda, but yesterday we had summer and today where I live, we will have another summers day. And so I thought I’d write about how Ayurvedic seasonal advice is determined by the qualities the natural environment brings, when it brings them. This used to be more predictable, leading to Ayurvedic seasonal advice and dates, but we can’t always go by the dates anymore. For instance, when to carry out an autumnal cleanse depends upon when the seasonal qualities start to change to autumn, and this year is a strange one.
Thank you Lucy it answers a lot for me. I’ve noticed since I stopped watching tv and only glance at news headlines that I’ve been better at sleeping. Not all the time but getting a more relaxing sleep pattern. Never checked out Ayurveda but will now. Your walk and your descriptions are so settling. Again thank you
Perfectly said....yes, so helpful to slow down and listen within. For what it's worth, I stopped engaging with the TV and radio news in 2020, and my mental health has been so much better! Best wishes Ax
Thank you so much for the mention, Lucy! And what a delightful, wise, and useful post. I love how you describe attuning and responding to our weather inside and out. Certain things are so instinctual, intuitive, and simple...yet are too often lost in these times.
