Notes from this week’s episode:

Ayurveda's hierarchy of healing

Emotional and mental well-being always comes first. Followed by diet and lifestyle, and then herbs.

You can eat all the organic kale in the world, but if you don’t heal your mind you’re still going to feel unhealthy.
— Dr Caroline Leaf

Ayurveda, India’s ancient science of life, teaches that we should always prioritise our mental health. And that we have the opportunity to work for our own wellbeing and peace of mind. 

We are not powerless. What we think, say, do, eat, watch and hear and where and how we do those things all impact our health and state of mind. 

We have the power of choice in whether those things are helping us or harming us.

How our emotional filters colour everything 

We see everything through the lens of our own emotional experience.

How accepting our experience helps

Knowing and accepting our current state gives us clarity to move forward.

The importance of talking about our concerns and needs

Find like-minded friends to talk with in a safe space. 

Getting support 

We often need help to gain self-understanding and direction. Whether it’s through reading up on the areas we want to work with, talking with understanding friends, or getting professional help, it’s always easier to move forward when we have support.
