We're coming into the home stretch for Kapha season (Springtime). It will soon be over by the end of June (maybe sooner once the intense summer heat arrives in your area). During Kapha season our body and mind reflect the heavy, sluggish nature of the earth, just starting to awaken from its slumber. During this season, our body and mind reflect those same qualities. We too feel heavy and sluggish.
Equally important is to arise early and quickly, definitely before 8:00 a.m., best by 6:00 a.m. If we linger in bed after waking, this aggravates the sluggishness of our circulation and lymphatic flow and we will feel slow and dull-minded all day. The lymph fluid is part of our immune system, and if it's sluggish then our immune system is impaired. So wake up, do a 5-4-3-2-1 countdown and get out of bed! Then start moving! You'll be amazed at the difference this makes to your sense of well being.
