1. Vision - Window to Your Soul
This requires mindful consumption. Adequate breaks from screens and daily eye exercises nurture not just sight but holistic mind-body health.
2. Touch - Self-Love and Nurture
Touch heals by bringing connection, love and pleasure. Ayurveda recommends a daily ritual of self-massage with skin oils to nourish the skin.
3. Taste - The Pleasure of Flavor
According to Ayurveda, each meal should include the six tastes: sweet, spicy, sour, bitter, salty and astringent. Your taste buds trigger digestive enzymes and a balanced flavorful meal goes a long way to nourish your body and soul.
4. Smell - Provoke Feelings and Memories
The sense of smell is closely linked to memory and emotions. Scents can evoke powerful feelings and transport us to different times and places.
5. Sound - Harmonize Your Frequency
Certain sounds, frequencies and vibrations have a harmonizing and balancing effect on your brain and nervous system. Attend a sound-healing session or simply listen to healing music and notice how you feel.
