The 5 senses have been something that have been calling to me for a few years. I’ve had so many 5 senses activities presented to me. I use them quite often with my son and in my own life. I use them as a chance to slow down and tune in with myself. Often we are rushing to the next activity and don’t get the chance to just slow it down and breathe.
I want to share how Ayurveda views the senses in relation to dosha as when I have something going on for example with my eyes- I know pitta is most likely involved.
If I have an ear thing it’s probably too much vata especially since I’ve been outside in the cold wind as of late which increases the vata dosha.
A quick lesson on how to lessen the vata dosha in the wind is simply to have your ears covered by a hat or scarf.
The 5 senses will be the first thing we are exploring in January’s seasonal living collective as it really helps not only adults but kids stay curious and mindful. My son loves to do 5 senses activities and you don’t need anything to do them. If slowing down and living more present is something you’ve been feeling the pull towards I would highly recommend this group coaching program. It is the roadmap I wish I would have had to start piecing together living seasonally with ancient wisdom we know in our bones but have slowly forgotten through the years.
