Here in NYC, it doesn't quite feel like Spring. We've all lost a bit of perspective now that Polar Vortex is a common phrase around here. Since when does 40° feel like Spring? Reality check! That's 8° above FREEZING! Still, Spring will arrive. It always does.
We've already sprung our clocks forward and more changes are coming. If you take a moment to get quiet inside, you'll notice little changes: buds on trees, new bird calls, teeny-tiny green sprouts of spring flowers. When our environment changes, we need to steady ourselves to stay healthy, grounded, vibrant, SANE.
My plan, pick a few things to do consistently - a quick and easy routine….No, I don't mean that morning (or 3pm) Savior dose of caffeine. Just a few simple things we can make time for - to nourish ourselves.
- Make yoga (or any physical, emotional, mental practice) a consistent thread in your life
- Try to add one new daily health routine. Heard of Oil Pulling yet? Its easy and the benefits are astounding. Check out this article entitled WTF is Oil Pulling.
- Freshen up your environment. Buy an indoor plant. Oh, you have that already? Then try sprouting your own sprouts. Its easier than you think, urban people. (www.sproutpeople.org)
- If you're up for it, try a Spring Detox. Not sure how? I have great resources, ask me.
