Kundalini

My husband is a teacher, and I spent so many years in school, and with kids going back to school, that late August will always feel like “back to school” time. We also have a lot of late August birthdays in our family. Right about now I start longing for more structure, fewer parties, more vegetables, fewer cocktails, more yoga, fewer late nights. Don’t get me wrong: I love our summers of fun! It’s just time for a correction. I know I am not alone in this shift! I am a big fan of self-care routines- which I didn’t realize were a “thing” these days. There are so many different ways we can “add health” to our daily routines it can easily become overwhelming. One way I manage the overwhelm is to make short term commitments to a routine- 30-40 days- and then re-evaluate. Do I love it? How do I feel? Did I notice a difference? Is it sustainable? Do I want to keep going or start a new routine?

My plan: 40 days of the same Kundalini kriya

New supplement routine focusing on immune support: Daily Nutrient Pack, extra Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Olive   Leaf, Reishi mushroom

In bed by 10 pm (or earlier)

Morning/Evening journaling using the structure of the 5 minute journal plus some exercises from Lynda Barry’s   Syllabus (which is my latest obsession)

 

Did you notice… one of my philosophies of health is that it is easier/better/more effective to ADD health to the system rather than take things AWAY. Notice I did NOT say, I’m going to cut out all sweets, alcohol etc. Or do an elimination diet. Or say NO to all social invitations. But the focus of my routine will help me find my way back to feeling centered, good in my body, rested, energized, all those things that naturally lead to making better decisions about when and how much to indulge.

I got the idea of a 30 day new “routine” from my niece Amelia when she was living in Portland, and also from Gretchen Rubin’s book The Happiness Project, which is also a great read and wonderful resource for embracing new healthier habits.

I’d love to hear about any “back to school” changes in routine that are working for you!

  • Dr. Louise RoseNaturopathic medicine is the past and the future of health care.  The current model of medicine focuses on disease, pathology and symptom management. Dr. Rose’s patients learn to become stewards of their own health, restore life’s natural rhythms, practice self care, and reconnect with their birthright of vitality and aliveness.  

    25 years of experience as a whole foods chef informs Dr. Rose’s nutritional philosophy that food is our first medicine for building a foundation of health. 

    One of Dr. Rose’s passions is  her love for the therapeutic power of water. The roots of Naturopathic medicine emerge from the European water cure traditions. Central to Rose Cabinet Medicine are the sauna, cold plunge, and tepidarium where patients come for renewal and to rediscover what wellness feels like. Dr. Rose is a graduate of  the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland Oregon. Other therapies that she is trained in include; Botanical Medicine including extensive training with essential oil therapies, Homeopathy, Shiatsu Massage, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Biotherapeutic Drainage, Gemmotherapy, and LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System).

What Dr. Rose’s patients are saying:
  • (after working with Dr. Rose) I arrived at a new sense of peace and well-being. My mind had space for quiet and stillness; my body more easily settled into a place of peace and comfort; my spirit lit up the from inside out. While life still happened, I found a greater capacity to cope with the challenges; the lessons learned and the renewal experienced have lasted me through a season. Thank you Dr. Rose!  Sharon Chinn
  • I simply can’t remember the last time I felt so cared for. Brought tears to my eyes. Sandy Keiter
PS I’m making chicken bone broth even as we speak. How ’bout that?
