Waking up

Wake up early, at least one hour before sunrise.

Nasal drops (Nasya)

Put two drops of sesame oil/mustard oil/ghee. It prevents premature greying of hair, baldness and ensures good sleep.

Exercise (Vyayama)

Exercising early in the morning can remove stagnation in the body and help recharge and rejuvenate.

Dental care


Using a fresh stick of neem (Azadirachta indica), khadir (Acacia catechu) etc can clean teeth and make foul smell vanish.

Bath (Snana)

Take a bath half to one hour after exercise.

Spice it up

Spices help in digestion, protecting the heart and fighting inflammation. Start with cumin, coriander, ginger and turmeric.

Eat a light dinner

Ayurveda recommends eating a light dinner before 8 pm. It enables the metabolic elements to also have some rest at night.

Sleep (Nidra)
