Ayurvedic Tweaks

Small changes for January (and the year ahead). Gentle tweaks rather than stringent undertakings in this particularly unforgiving month. I can’t recommend highly enough for those on a similarly gentle path the books Eat Right for your Body Type (originally in paperback but now in hardback too) and A Pukka Life (don’t let the titles put you off as they did me for a while). Both published by Quadrille and inspired by Ayurveda they inspire with small but significant suggestions of dietary and seasonal substitutions. For these deep winter months? Warm sesame oil in the mouth, nasya oil to bring ‘lightness and clarity’ via the nasal passages and sleeping in just a little later in the morning … all eminently do-able in my world.
