Light dawns

Eminé Rushton celebrates the start of each day with some simple, sacred Ayurvedic rituals

balance plan

New series

When living Ayurvedically, we become intimately acquainted with cause and effect. We realise that anything that forms part of our daily experience, from the weather to the food we eat, has an impact on body, mind and spirit. This month, we aim to wake up well. In Ayurveda, we believe there is a special energy in the air just before sunrise. Wake up 10 minutes before dawn, wrap up, and step into nature. Sit silently, witnessing the sun’s ascent. Regardless of how many times we witness it, it continues to inspire awe and is mindfulness in simplest action. Then we may move or meditate: a round of sun salutations, or 10 minutes of meditation, are a gentle invitation to begin our day well.

About Psychologies

We encourage you to fall in love with life, to get out of your head and into nature. Spring is officially here and we’re encouraging you to try a ‘micro-adventure’ –  a 24-hour foray outside into the fresh air whether it’s walking in the hills, or sleeping under the stars. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and fed up of slaving to support a lifestyle that doesn’t make you happy, then read how decluttering and minimalism can help you start creating a life based on values, not things in our  dossier. Join our month-long Psychologies Decluttering Challenge with expert Cait Flanders, author of The Year Of Less, who will coach us on how to simplify our lives.
