Save The Soil

Do you know there’s a global movement save the soil going on ? If you google, you will find all the informative except probably what can one do abt it ? Besides making a deal on social media.

This is what I do since having a yard . Have been growing vegetables . Have fruit trees.

Bury kitchen waste in veggie garden . All this keeps soil alive and keep earthworms happy.

Since we have home owners association, yard does get sprayed and it’s ok. I do what I can do. Be practical.

You can grow whatever you like and grows in your climate . Even growing flowers make soil soft is what I noticed .

This is only if you are interested in doing something and don’t start bugging others.

Picture is of my green beans bushes which enriches soil with nitrogen .


Korean Night

Recently I watched Korean series crash landing on you on Netflix and loved it .

Learned later it has been a hit series all over the world .

There’s a Korean store that sometimes I go after yoga class and today I went. Bought some new type of mushrooms, bean sprouts etc . That give me this idea that you can do a Korean night where make Korean meal and watch Korean show . Good way to try something new and make it fun.

Korean pear, Korean cabbage , black sesame seeds are some of the things I buy.

We did 2 trails y’day as a Valentine’s Day special and it was fun .

Happy Valentine’s Day. As my yoga teacher says fall in love with yourself again .


Back to Basics

When in doubt , go back to basics. Right ? We learn as a kid what’s imp to live. Air, water and food. In that order.

There’s so much around food, some abt water. Air or breath without which we can hardly survive 5 mins. Not much focus there. Isn’t it ?

Spend some time knowing your breath. To begin, just sit quietly and watch /observe your breath .


What To Exercise

Do we ever think what to exercise ? Of course if you exercise . We all use only certain muscles , movement through out the day. It’s like in a home certain part never gets used and eventually will rot or gather dirt. We need to tickle the Muscles , circuits that doesn’t get used.

For example , Most of us sit in front of computer or TV most of the day. So all forward , backward , side bending are good . Then eye exercise since we are always staring at some screen.

If you are on the go all time , then need to ground yourself . Do yoga where you stay in pose for few seconds . Like that.. just giving examples to think abt .

Picture is of split where inner leg muscles get stretched and works on liver channel. In our day to day life , these muscles never get stretched.

Same for brain , if you are all logic then add some creativity . If your work is all creativity , add some logic exercise .

Let me go do some exercise now .
