Tips and tricks to feel alive and lively
Alvaro, the grandfather of my partner used to do a somersault every Spring when he saw the first swallow in the field – when he looked at our amazed faces when he told us this story, he said that it was a popular country tradition to celebrate the return of Spring!
He has done his annual somersault for over 80 years now! How we have enjoyed together these events, even in the last few years when he couldn’t stand up, again he burst out laughing and called Gabriele to help him to get up!
Like all other years, this year also we celebrated life and Spring and to honour Gabriele’s grandfather, Gabriele and I showed our rural athletic skills and did the somersault. We felt alive and happy like the children we once were.
This Spring, although peculiar and challenging, different from all those we have experienced before, we notice how the season still brings us its energy of renewal and change.
And how can we help our body, which has napped all winter to wake up and lighten, supporting the impulse and energy that Spring brings us?
Here are five practices we can do daily to feel lighter and more vital:
Forward bends with legs spread, also excellent for circulation.
Sitting or standing twists excellent for digestion
Position of the candle – lightens the circulatory and lymphatic system
Position of the child – tones the intestines and lightens the kidneys
If you are not practicing Yoga, I recommend you to watch some tutorials on Youtube. There are some excellent ones!
Green colored foods are the most suitable but not the only ones and in general all foods with an agro-acid taste
Fermented foods and drinks: sauerkraut, kefir, Kombucha
Legumes especially azuki beans
I wish a Good rebirth to our body that awakens, to our emotions that flow and to our thoughts that become clearer!
