Most of my clients come to a yoga class with the goal of leaving some stress behind. This past Tuesday, my friend Paula Guilbeault-Roballo, a classical homeopath, came to the studio and did a talk for us and the tips she shared were amazing!
Why do you want to keep doing yoga? Yoga is the modality that comes closest to a homeopathic treatment, Paula says. Focusing on the breath, and sending the breath deep into the lungs has an instant effect on your autonomous nervous system.
But in addition to yoga, Paula suggested that some of the food we eat may alleviate stress, but some others may trigger it.
In this day and age, where our pace is never fast enough, it is easy to turn to fast foods, simply because they are easy and tasty, producing an instant reward for the tired mind. Manyfast food restaurants now offer what they claim to be healthier choices, however, these items are often loaded with sugar and fat.
A yogic lifestyle and proper eating habits go absolutely hand-in-hand, and the foods you eat should create balance and harmony in your system.
Every person is different and to find your own balance and harmony, I encourage you to monitor the foods you eat to determine what works for you and what does not.
