Keep it Cool and Keep it Simple

“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.” ~ Dalai Lama

Within these pages we welcome Summer and offer many ways to Keep It Cool and Keep It Simple. Practicing love and compassion are some of the simplest ways. Author Tracey Gates (pp 20-21) shares “Being kind to ourselves makes it easier to be kind to everyone else. It also involves unplugging from screens and reconnecting to others in real time.”

Our feature article (pp 12-13) by Nikki Paschar goes into greater depth helping us chart a course far away from chronic stress and burnout. You will find advice for implementing self-compassion, too.

Another must read: Ayurvedic Seasonal Eating (pp 22-23). Ayurveda is all about balancing with nature, so in the hot summer when we tend to sweat more and feel dehydrated, we need to incorporate cooling and hydrating foods.
