Some say ‘Home is where the heart is.’ I say, ‘Home is where the heat and humidity is.’
I’ve realized thus for some time: certain climates are much more physiologically stressful to me than others. Being a largely Vata body type, dryness and cold are hard for me, whereas warm, humid environments are very soothing. Although I love the beauty and my long time friends in New Mexico, I find the climate creates a constant hum of stress on me, especially spring and fall when the juniper and chamisa allergies are rampant!
Back here is Hawai’i, I relax. Left to the #2, I should “never” go to NM, and if I “have to” then I should be miserable. Mind you. the sneezing and the itchy eyes and runny nose was no fun, but certainly manageable given my chosen reasons for being there. I think it is really useful to understand how environment or food can create physiological stress, as this helps me deal with it consciously, rather than being at effect of it.
