Jill Satterfield, founder of Vajra Yoga, the brand-new School for Compassionate Action, and a fixture at the Tibet House, gives Well+Good three tips for holding onto what summer sanity and sense of relaxation we’ve acquired. So come fall craziness, we’ll all have a few of the tricks that accomplished yogis and meditators and the Dalai Lama have at the ready. Be them, now.
1. Savor, don’t gulp, a piece of summer fruit.
Take a bite of summer fruit, like a peach or a melon, and chew it slowly, allowing it to almost dissolve in your mouth. Normally, we eat so quickly. But if we take our time, we can really be transported into an awareness of taste, the sense of taste. Plus it’s way of pausing to enjoy last bits of what summer’s given us.
For centuries women in Asia and South Asia have been using the healing treatments of oils for their mind and body. It gives you a good fresh and relaxed mind that a busy and stressful women might need. It even helps your body to relief stress. You can use any oil such as, coconut oil, lavender oil, olive oil or jojoba oil. Here’s what I do: I fill the tub with warm water and add a few drops of oil and then get in. For more magic turn off the lights and light your candles. You will also get the effects of aromatherapy by this which is so relaxing that I can’t even describe it to you.
