The cause of the majority of chronic diseases stems from a lifestyle that goes against nature. We go to sleep, get up too late, eat, and multi-task, and lack daily routines that enhance our natural health.
The goal of Ayurveda is to bring our entire being into alignment with the universe. The signs of that body-mind-spirit harmony manifest as stability, strength, stamina, long life, skin luster, clear eyes, radian completion, good immunity, joyful and calm presence.
Here are very simple and accessible to all Ayurvedic recommendations that can help to sync your body with the natural rhythms of nature for optimal functioning:
✅ get up early (desirably before sunrise)
✅ Empty your bladder and intestines
✅ brush tongue & teeth
✅ hold coconut oil for around 5-10 minutes in your mouth or try Banyan’s Mint Daily Swish
✅ drink 2 glasses of warm water with or without lemon (judge by your own taste)
✅ take a walk outdoors, do some exercise, or practice yoga for 20 minutes
✅ mediate for 5 minutes focusing on your breath and setting your intention for the day
✅ shower and perform self-massage using oils such as almond or try Banyan’s Daily Massage Oil
✅ eat a small breakfast such as fruit or smoothie or hot oatmeal with flaxseed oil; you can have a “second breakfast” that is more hearty when you feel hungry as the morning progresses
✅ remember as you start your day not to snack between meals; drink warm water infused with ginger, and turmeric throughout the day between meals; if you feel sugar cravings have a teaspoon of honey
This routine can be a solid foundation for your day to support your health and well-being.
