What If Ayurveda Is Your Cure?

Like Comment

Gorgeous,

Are you struggling to keep good habits?

Are you waking up in the middle of the night?

Did you try everything and nothing works?

If you responded yes to any of these questions, I invite you to read my next words.

I believe that everything starts with your health. And when you feel that the Western/functional medicine is not helping you to get better, it's time to turn to alternatives medicines. There is one in particular that always piqued my curiosity called Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning "science of life" (ayur means "life or longevity" and veda means "knowledge, wisdom, or science").

Ayurveda is known as a "living science" because it incorporates modern developments and techniques into a body of ancient wisdom. Due to this adaptability, Ayurveda has been useful for thousands of years.

I spoke with Dr Tamsin Astor, Chief Habit Scientist and author of the Force of Habit.

She is a fierce advocate of this holistic medicine which helped her get back her health during extremely challenging times for her family and her.

You'll learn:

The origins of Ayurveda

  • What is a Dosha

  • How can you know what your Dosha is

  • The first steps to practice Ayurveda

  • The benefits of Ayurveda for your health and wellbeing

Tamsin and I would love to know: what was your biggest insight?

With love and joy,

Gaëlle

Motivational Speaker, Mindset Mentor and Well-being Expert, A Rockstar Mindset

Let’s start with three qualities which define me, shall we? I am an optimist, I’m innovative and I’m energetic. If you’re looking for something unconventional blended with optimism and energy, welcome to the Rockstar Mindset QG. I am a Motivational Speaker, a Mindset Mentor and a Wellbeing Expert. I’m also a UK Ambassador for Psychologies magazine, a publication which inspires and motivates readers to create a life they love through the online Life Labs platform. After 10 years working in the banking industry, I created my wellness consultancy, A Rockstar Mindset, to help ambitious women to become the rockstar of their life. How? By getting out of overwhelm, master your wellbeing and mindset so that you become visible and confident like hell. When I became a mum, I strove to be the best mum possible. I did not foresee that my attitude, my pursuit of perfection, would leave me feeling constantly overwhelmed and on the edge of burnout. But it has long been my belief that positivity is a driver for change and leadership, and when I learned about positive psychology and neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change and adapt), I was hooked. “Positive psychology is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living.” –- C. Peterson My approach is that there is more than we can see, that it’s fundamental to maintain a critical stance and to be independent of thought. I’ve always been the rebel, the outsider, the one to challenge the status quo and bring new and different perspectives or ideas. My encounter with positive psychology and the neurosciences confirmed for me that my beliefs (that we should think outside the box, focus on the positive) were accurate. I was on the right track! Convinced that there was another way to be successful at work and at home, I delved into the world of neurosciences, positive psychology and metaphysics and created my own system, Do Less, Get More Done – a framework that helps women to be successful with less overwhelm, whilst feeling more present. Positive psychology focuses on strengths instead of weaknesses, building the good in life rather than repairing the bad and reflecting on values and attitudes such as optimism, gratitude, compassion, self-esteem and resilience. The study of these topics came about from a desire to help people flourish and live their best lives. “It is not primarily our physical selves that limit us but rather our mindset about our physical limits.” ― E. Langer It is my conviction that every woman deserves to have a healthy mindset so that she can create a life on her terms. Why? Because we deserve to say stop to the pressure emanating from culture, social media, society. We deserve to be accepted and empowered. Our mind is our ally and must be strengthened as such. Shifting our mindset is vital as well as unlearning, removing the old beliefs holding us back, raising our consciousness and developing our intuition. But there's more. Mindset is important but your wellbeing is primordial. Working on your mindset and wellbeing is the formula to create a life you love. Combining your head and heart in everything you do is what makes all the difference. The difference that you crave to create in your life. The world needs us (as women) to positively make a difference to make the life of women, children, and future generations better. It’s time to build a healthy, conscious society based on mutual respect. And I genuinely believe that women have the skills to merge masculine and feminine energy to create something incredible. As for the rest: I love to travel, read books and dance with abandon. I’m married to a marvellous Frenchman and we have a daughter. I am fluent in English and French and I’m an advocate of beauty and women’s empowerment. My philosophy is Forward Thinking Communication and I’m here to help you become the Rockstar of Your Life.
