If you’ve followed this podcast for a while, you know that I think self care is vitally important if you want to live a happy, healthy life. (I even created an online course about self care!) You might also know that I dabble in Ayurveda and I’m fascinated about what little nuggets of wisdom I can learn from yoga’s “sister science.”
So, I was thrilled when I came across a new book that talks about Ayurveda through the lens of self care. This week I talk to Sarah Kucera, author of The Ayurvedic Self-Care Handbook: Holistic Healing Rituals for Every Day and Season, all about her book and what Ayurveda can teach us about taking care of ourselves.
* How Sarah’s struggles with feeling low energy and stressed led her to look for solutions from Ayurveda and write this book
* The Ayurvedic clock–and why your bedtime and waking time is as important as the number of hours you sleep
* Why self care can be accessible to all (even those who are short on time and/or money). She explains why it doesn’t have to be “all or nothing.”
* Sarah’s “pranic budget,” and how can you use this concept to use your energy more wisely, be more efficient, and have more time to do the things you love
