Spring Cleaning by Dr. Luke Schmelzle
Spring is the season of renewal and fresh beginnings. It’s the ideal time for clearing out the old and making way for the new. In Ayurveda, spring is typically known as a Kapha season.
Spring Cleaning Your Environment
The key to spring cleaning is really to reduce trash and clutter, ridding of anything that is worn out, broken, or has served its purpose. Your energy will feel lighter as you turn next toward your inner work.
Spring Clean Your Diet
Because the Kapha season is heavy, wet, and cool, Ayurveda suggests pacifying these qualities within yourself by consuming light, dry, and hot foods and beverages. Grilled, baked or lightly cooked foods with hot spices will increase your energy.
Spring Clean Your Nervous System
Be sure to tend to your true nature by incorporating self-care rituals that support cleansing and mindfully directing your energy.
- Let go of old trauma patterns, limiting beliefs, and stuck energy. Network Care can really help with this.
- Exercise daily, especially in the spring.
- Set new goals.
- Connect yourself with nature.
