When it’s cloudy (inside or outside) , try 12 sun salutations and check .
Ekadasi meal is supposed to be just 1 item, 1 time and min spices. Amaranth flour is used which is gluten free. Sindho salt is used little bit.
Even if you don’t observe Ekadasi vrat, it’s good to have this simple meals. And try to eat 1 or 2 meals with just 1 item. Avoid all day snacks.
With this modified eating I still see benefits. You are more aware of what is going in the mouth.
Do you observe ekadasi vrat ? How do you feel ?
Whenever we make changes in life style , diet we should observe how it’s feeling. Most of the time ppl are just looking at scale. So learn to observe how you are feeling. And you will know what works for you and what not.
Do you hike ? Or is it something you are scared of ? Hiking is fun and I think good to introduce to kids too.
Mediation meaning silent observation. If you are interested in starting practice , here’s some steps, tips.
