As a birthday approaches, whether it is in the shape of a looming ogre or for some in the shape of a party animal, we often stop to contemplate the importance of what it means to us, and those around us.

While turning the pages of an old textbook on Ayurveda (the notes were from 2002) I saw the sentence; how old would you be if you did not know how old you were? I was 40 at the time. The question evoked a brief thought process as I looked into turning 52 next week.. so grateful to feel younger than my numerical age.

Conclusion: Time to clean up this house!

Start with quite literally cleaning up the house, closets, cars, storage areas, clears our the cobwebs in the mind. Doing this has a therapeutic and meditative effect on body, mind and spirit.

Set aside one day of the week for fasting. If you are a vata or pitta constitution, it’s best to follow a fruit fast..the hazard of eating a bystander are high! Kapha dominant can follow a juice or water fast.

Change out the spices from the spice box in your kitchen with spices more suitable for the cold weather. Methi, red chilli peppers, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper are all warming spices.

Wake up before sunrise.. yes, it is a pain, but only in the beginning. It is kapha season and surrendering to the temptation of staying in a warm cozy bed adds to lethargy, buildup of toxins and weight. It goes hand in hand with going to the gym or exercising for a healthy start to the new year.

Attend an ayurvedic detox class offered at Oshan Center! Yay! We have seen excellent results with over 100 students in 2013 and gratefully acknowledge the effort and love our students have showered in learning the process and referring family and friends.
