A Healthy Morning Routine with Ayurveda

“A healthy person is someone whose body, mind, and spirit are integrated as a unified whole….A healthy person has constructive attitudes and positive approaches to opportunities and challenges, while still experiencing the mystery and wonder of life. A healthy person lives in a loving way within their environment and culture to optimize the vitality and potential of the whole.  A healthy person feels joyful enough to dance to the radio at breakfast time.” – Sebastian Pole (from Discovering the True You with Ayurveda)
