Staying positive isn’t as easy as making sure there’s a smile on your face, it’s breaking the walls your mind has built up for you. It’s convincing that voice in the back of your head it’s wrong on the days when everything feels exhausting. Being around people, laughing and joking with your friends, sounds like the perfect antidote. But you have to get there first—which isn’t always easy.
Being positive is also showing up when you just want to hide.
It’s why, in the grand scheme of things, it’s essential to find joy in the smallest things. To be positive about what you can, and try to remind yourself to only worry about the things you can control.
And different things will work for different people. So you might need to explore and find what suits you.
At Good Karma, we’re advocates of mindfulness, meditation and trusting in karma. We believe in taking the time to explore and educate oneself—for instance, our founder, Steve, travelled to and spent time to heal in Goa, where he discovered Ayurveda.
For Steve, Ayurveda allowed him to become more in tune with his physical mental needs. For Ayurvedic medicine, physical activity, the execution of asanas for therapeutic purposes, is part of a balance. Together with good nutrition, the power for the prevention of diseases is very important. The balance is the basis of these characteristics in addition to meditation and techniques for proper breathing (pranayama).
His journey and relationship now with Ayurveda has brought him on the journey of Good Karma.
What is Ayurveda and can it help in staying positive?
Ayurveda is a form of holistic medicine that originated in India over 3,000 years ago. It focuses on promoting a balance between your body and mind. It’s a holistic approach, taking medication from mother nature. It focuses on promoting good health, not fighting disease. It’s not a replacement for prescribed medication, but we believe that it offers an alternative for people who feel they need more balance in their lives.
Because we’re so passionate about Ayurvedic recipes, we hope to launch a range of sodas inspired by them to heal the mind and body, something we could all use after such a stressful year!
We hope that you too can find comfort and positivity through ancient Ayurvedic recipes.
