In Sunshine and Structure, I got a little weird, talking about high vibrational foods - a theme brought up more in hippie-dippie publications (thanks HuffPo!) than more medically based ones. But, ironically, in my research for Good Vibrations, I came across a post written by Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor which touches upon the benefits of phytonutrients, a term covered before. While eating foods that match the colors of our chakras is still under investigation, the phytonutrients that lead to such colors are important indeed. You can read the article here.
Additionally, a few alternate ways to sneak some direct sunlight as opposed to obtaining it indirectly from plants goes as follows:
• Top Down Driving: As Macklemore claims in his song, "I'm rollin' out, roof off, letting in the sky/ I'm sure the city never looked so bright." If you've got it, flaunt it, as they say. A sun roof provides a great way to sneak some rays in the summer. As uv rays can't travel through glass driving with the windows or "top" down provides a great means of catching some sun. And while you're at it, pump up some songs that carry good vibes. Below is one that didn't make the first cut.
Brimful of Asha
Also, if you're up for it, driving in silence can sometimes be the best "medicine." As the (car) tops come down in summer, the volume of music seems to go up. But sometimes, it's nice to just let our minds rest. Recently, I've been struggling with some difficult choices (see next week's article) and I noticed that driving in silence allowed me to process some of the emotions I was afraid to deal with. Plus, (if you're in Connecticut especially) it's therapeutic to drive and simply enjoy the summer scenery. ☀️🌳
