So, how do you spin things back into balance?
Yes! We dance. But here is a few more ideas
Give your feet some attention:
Kick off those shoes and treat your feet to a little rub. Heck, get someone else to rub your feet. Tell them it will help with constipation. 😄 Test their love for you! But seriously, focus on your feet. Head outside, feel the ground, feel the sun, close your eyes, and take a good 5 minutes to breathe in through your feet up to the heart, then out slowly from the heart down to the feet.
Ever tried picturing yourself as a tree? Or if you want to tap into your hippy self, hug a tree. It’s the best hug you’ll ever feel.
Trust me – your ROOT Chakra thanks you.
Eat red veggies and fruits or ANY root vegetable
We naturally gravitate to roots in the winter. Ask our Ayurveda expert Jill Novak about seasonal eating. It only makes sense that this is our natural way to support root chakra imbalance.
Carrots, parsnips, potatoes, radishes, onions, garlic, beets, ginger root, horseradish, leek, yam, rutabaga < never have I ever! It’s a hard pass.
I love my morning mud drink with dandelion root tea; Thank you, Sheena, our favorite holistic nutrition coach in Cochrane, for introducing it to me 4 years ago. Gotta love name-dropping my awesome sisters! I encourage you to check them out. They are next level!
Apply any of the following grounding essentials to the bottoms of your feet and the base of your spine.
Patchouli, Frankincense, Myrrh, Cedarwood, Sandalwood
(if this idea feels intimidating, let’s call it “stillness”)
Listen to music at 432hz – the frequency is associated with the color red. This sound frequency can help balance the ROOT energy center. It’s a stress release.
Remember, dance starts with one step. Find that one that resonates with you, and together we will find our rhythm.
