1 Recipe to Improve Sleeping

Are you having trouble sleeping…? In Ayurveda, we are in the transition from Pitta (Summer) to Vata (Fall) which can disturb our sleep by too much or too intense brain activity when we’re trying to shut down (damn monkey brain won’t shut up!. A great and yummy remedy is to take a warm, nourishing and calming drink (rasayana drink) made of nut milk, spices and herbs before bedtime to induce and support a good night sleep. Here’s one of my favorite recipes – that I’m currently taking myself:

1 cup of almond or non-homogenized cow milk (if you digest it well)
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
A few drops of pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. ghee
1 tsp. coconut sugar (for pitta and vata) or honey (for kapha)
1/8 tsp. Ashwagandha* (optional), especially if your prakriti shows a predominant Vata dosha

Warm up (boil if using cow milk) the first 4 ingredients in a stainless steel saucepan. Pour in a mug, and add the sweetener and the ashwagandha (if used). Stir and enjoy!… Nighty night and sweet dreams… (Douchka)

*You can purchase high quality, organic and sustainably grown Ashwagandha in powder form (available in different amounts) at Banyan Botanicals: http://www.banyanbotanicals.com/prodinfo.asp?number=6082&a_aid=52562facb1878&a_bid=cca60ac9

Kindness

This is a good reminder to all of us who sometimes meet people who drive us crazy. Seeing their behavior with different eyes will help us understand one another, or at least will show us to be more compassionate. Always a challenge, but so worth trying.
