Ayurveda is not all about herbs; it is also a way of living a disciplined life. It has certain rules and regulations that can be followed to live a healthy and well-organised life. Ayurveda also helps in balancing both physical and mental health. Here we have listed few Ayurvedic principles that you can incorporate in your daily life to have a happy and healthy life:
1. Get up early in the morning
According to Ayurveda, it is advisable to get up early in the morning. Early morning is the time to get some fresh air and positive energy and save it up for rest of the day.
2. Start your day with a (water) power drink
Start your day with a glass of water and if you want, add a spoon for pure honey. It helps you flush out toxins from the body and honey helps get rid of the unwanted bacteria from the body. It also helps in fatigue and ease bowel movement as a result constipation also improves.
3. Exercise and meditate
A good thirty minute of exercise will help you to keep your system active and will keep your weight in check, which is the major cause of most problems. At the same time it is important to take out few minutes to shut yourself from all the chaos and simply relax.
4. Eat the Ayurvedic way
‘You are what you eat’ this saying is absolutely true! Ayurveda emphasizes on eating fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables. It is important to stay away from the oily and junk food to have a healthy body. If you continue to follow Ayurvedic way throughout then your body will start developing positive energy and will clear all the doshas.
5. Add more herbs and essential spices to your diet
Do include spices like ginger, turmeric, garlic, cumin and black pepper in your cooking. All these herbs help to cut bad cholesterol and trigger the metabolism as well.
