Ayurveda Daily Routine for Healthy Life
“Samadosha Samagnischa Samadhatu Malakriya,
Prasannatmendriyamana Swashtha Iti Vidhiyate “
According to the Ayurveda daily routine, the balancing of Dosha, Dhatu, Mala, and Agni in our body is termed as Swasthya. Ayurvedic acharyas state that sawasthya does not mean only physical fitness but mental fitness as well.
The Ayurvedic field has been best known to heal the people by correcting their aggravated doshas and it mainly works firmly on the basis of two structures: First is daily routine and second is our Daily Diet.
Ayurvedic Daily routine is known as ‘Ayurvedic Dinacharya’ and it is one of the principles mentioned in the Ayurvedic texts and is all about bringing balance in the life of a person by diversifying the routine in such a way wherein we can give in space to everything.
The flow of energy gets balanced along with the balance tridoshas Vata dosha, Pitta dosha, and Kapha dosha because Ayurveda works on the body’s rhythmic system and mainly focuses on internal healing.
Ayurvedic Dincharya (Ayurveda Daily Routine) is very necessary to balance radical changes in the body, mind, as well as consciousness. It helps to establish balance in one’s constitution. By adopting this there is a regularization of a person’s biological clock, which aids digestion, assimilation, and absorption generates peace, happiness, self-esteem, and longevity.
If a person follows the daily regimen regularly it will help in the termination of all the changes which can occur due to time at the primary level because it slows down the process of irreversible changes, thereby keeping the person healthy and disease-free.
Ayurvedic science has mainly followed 2 objectives:
Aaturasya Vikaara Prashamnam Ch”;
It indicates that to maintain positive health in the individuals who are healthy and to treat the persons who are suffering from various diseases.
For fulfillment of the first objective (to maintain positive health in a healthy person), Ayurveda suggests some lifestyle strategies, named as:
- Dincharya (daily regimen)
- Ritucharya (seasonal regimen)
- Sadvritta (Good moral conduct)
- Ashtang Yoga
Charaka samhita, Sushruta samhita, Ashtang hridaya, Bhava prakasha, and other Acharyas describe the importance of Ayurvedic Dinchacharya in their texts.
The Description of Ayurvedic Dincharya (Ayurveda Daily Routine) is Mentioned below:
- प्रातरुत्थानम् ‘Brahmamuhurta Jagrana’:
रऺाथमायषू: स्वस््येजातवेग: सामुत्सजृ ेत!”
It indicates waking up during Brahma Muhruta (early in the morning or 90 minutes before sunrise). According to the Acharyas, it is the most karmic time when positive energy flows in the Satvika and helps to gain positivity and strength. It welcomes a new day with deep breaths so that the freshness flows in and gives us a new start.
Also, in the early morning, oxygen in the atmosphere readily mixes up with hemoglobin to form oxy-hemoglobin which nourishes the deep tissues. Also, exposure to the bright light of the early morning releases the serotonin (neurotransmitter biochemically derived from trytophan) which helps in the contribution of well-being and happiness.
According to Ayurveda’s daily routine (Dincharya), Brahmamuhurta is the time when positive energy flows in and Satvikta helps us gain positivity, strength, and welcoming a new day with deep breaths so that the freshness flows in and gives us a new start to our old problems.
- उषःपानम् ‘Ushana Jalpana’:
Take 1-2 glasses of water which is kept for the whole night should be taken before sunrise. According to the Ayurveda, start a day with a glass of lukewarm water, it will help to detoxifies the body, rehydrates the tissues, and relaxes the Agni (hyperacidity) which is accumulated overnight.
Every person should eliminate natural urges (feces and urine) daily. This process will help to clear the rectum, increases digestive power, prevents abdominal distension, pain, foul-smelling flatus, constipation, etc. In most people, this is an automatic reflex for a bowel movement and urination in the morning.
But someone if unable to empty the bowel properly, he/she can eat a fiber-rich diet and Triphala Rasayan. It is the most popular Ayurvedic formulation mentioned by the Acharyas. A person can take 3 grams of Triphala Churna along with 2.5 grams of ghee and 5 grams of honey daily after an evening meal.
Triphala is a mixture of three fruits – Amla, Baheda, and Harad, that includes multiple properties including anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory, supports the functioning of the liver, and prevents several diseases.
