At Bohana, we believe in prescribing to a lifestyle that leaves you feeling satisfied and balanced. Ayurveda, the holistic mind body life-science that believes that every individual is unique, is all about listening to your body and feeding your soul.
Nourish your body
Eating nourishing and delicious foods that make you feel good is one of the best forms of self-care. We recommend discovering your dosha type and fueling your body with foods that will allow you to thrive! Don’t listen to fad diets and think you need to eat a certain way because somebody tells you to. Only you understand what your body needs and a personalized way of eating will have the best results!
Staying active has amazing physical and mental benefits. Not only will you feel lighter and more energized, but the endorphins will leave an overall positive feeling in your body. You don’t have to do intense workouts everyday but even if you go for a walk or do a fun workout class with a friend, this daily activity will reduce your stress and boost your mood.
Finding a creative outlet is also a great way to reduce stress and brighten your day. Spend down time reading that book you always wanted to read, listening to your favorite music, discovering a new podcast that you just can’t get enough of or even painting a new piece of art for the empty wall in your room. Indulging your mind and discovering ways to express yourself is just as important as taking care of your physical health.
We also love a relaxing bath or a good face mask! Try a super hydrating mask if your skin is feeling a little dry or a detoxifying clay mask for deep-pore cleansing action. Making a face mask or scrub at home is also super easy and most of the ingredients are already in your kitchen. This Honey Oat scrub only has 4 ingredients and will make your skin glow! You will feel refreshed and your beauty will radiate from the inside out.
Clear your mind
At the end of a long day, we love relaxing with a nice cup of herbal tea and burning some incense just to set the mood. Try meditating with the headspace app.This is a great way to wind down, clear your mind of racing thoughts and let go of stress. Journaling for a few minutes while you drink your morning coffee or before you go to bed is also a great way to check in with your emotions. Write down all your thoughts, goals and aspirations and make it a daily habit.
We hope to inspire everyone to practice self love and incorporate these self care hacks into their daily routine. Show us how you nourish your body, keep moving, be creative, pamper yourself and clear your mind by tagging @bohanalife
