Daily self-care habits are absolutely key to feeling good in your body because no-one can have that level of connection with you, except you. When you pay attention to your needs and wants, you start to feel safer and open enough for outside help to reach your core.
Ageing gracefully comes from feeling good in our body and living from that place. To feel good within ourselves we have to be courageous enough to pay attention to what we really need and want. How do we know what we really need?
From around fifty years of age onwards is considered a Vata stage of life, where our body tissues can begin to dry and stiffen. Cold windy dry weather is Vata in Nature. When you've pain or stiffness you know Vata is present too. No matter where you live or how old you are it's time to nourish yourself deeply with good oils and fats, inside and out.
Avoid 'over doing it' and that feeling of being driven or pulled by the bustle of life. Through soothing connecting oil massage even once a week you can build your immunity, get a sense of streamlining your activities towards health supporting ones, and avoid burn out and mucous. Self oil massage is a remarkably simple habit with profound effects that come from Ayurveda's understanding of Vata's energetics of movement, Pitta's burning action, and Kapha's stuck congestion potential.

DINACHARYA Daily Habit
Decide to include at least 1 Tbsp Ghee or Coconut oil in your meals a day.
Ayurvedic Ghee is made with cultured butter. Probiotic benefits to gut health come from the lactic acid working on the milk before it's turned to butter. Most store bought butter is made from simple cream. Pasteurization disables the milks ability to produce its own bacteria so many cultured butters are made by adding curd back into cream - that's fine and your body will thank you for making your Ghee with organic cultured butter.
Here's our Ghee video recipe as promised - make your own Ghee in 15 mins for half the cost of store bought ghee. BUBBLE FOAM BUBBLE your way to wellness from the inside out!
