Stay fresh & light
The summer is still going and keeping us alive!
Sometimes the heat makes it hard to keep energized and active.
Here are a few natural tips to stay bright and breezy!
Breath in! Carry a little bottle of essential oils with you! Lavender, mint, citrus, thyme, rose or eucalyptus will give you a boost when inhaling them and make you feel like you are in the middle of a beautiful flowery forest.
Cooling drinks! As well as their refreshing taste and benefits for the skin, both aloe vera juice and coconut water have a cooling effect, perfect for warmer days.
Power nap! Short naps during the day are ideal to perk you up. 20 min maximum or you might feel a bit dozy if it's longer. You will feel refreshed and focused for the rest of the day!
Vitamin D! Spend time outside in the sun! Sunlight boosts the production of vitamin D and the hormone serotonin (this one make you very happy). Plus it gives you a lovely sun kiss glow!
More breathing! If humidity leaves you feeling hot and bothered try sheetali / sitali breathing to cool both body and mind. Inhale slowly through a rolled tongue and exhale through both nostrils. Cool, calm and collected is just a few breaths away.
Enjoy the rest of your summer yogis!
