Ayurvedic Approaches for Cleaning the Emotions
1. Change your life by learning diaphragmatic breathing.
When we rediscover diaphragmatic breathing, we shift from the flight-fight-freeze mode to the rest, restore, and relaxation mode, which is the state in which we want and need to live.
2. Daily Guided Precises:
Spend 11 minutes, as anchors of your daily Ayurvedic regimen, in the morning and evening.
3. Ayurvedic daily rituals include an ayurvedic morning routine and six rituals for a calm and focused day.
Wake at a supportive hour
Cleanse and clear
Ground and breathe
Eat a dosha-balancing breakfast
Take your herbs
According to Ayurveda, the nighttime ritual (Ratri Charya) is crucial for preserving general health and wellbeing. It fosters a balanced lifestyle and harmonises with the body’s natural cycles. Here is an example of an Ayurvedic nighttime routine:
- Early Dinner (Ratri Ahara):
- Have your last meal of the day at least 2-3 hours before bedtime.
- The dinner should be light, easily digestible, and warm.
- Digital Detox (Vivikta Bhojana):
- Minimize screen time from electronic devices like phones, tablets, computers, etc., at least 1-2 hours before bed.
- Engage in calming activities like reading a book, gentle stretching, or meditation.
- Self-Care Practices (Abhyanga):
- Practice self-massage (Abhyanga) with warm oil, like sesame or coconut oil, before bedtime. It promotes relaxation, improves circulation, and nourishes the skin.
- Oral Hygiene (Mukhalepa):
- Clean your mouth and teeth using a tongue scraper and herbal toothpaste. Gargle with warm water.
- Reading or Reflection (Manana):
- Read or reflect on positive and calming literature, or write in a journal to clear your thoughts and prepare for a peaceful night’s sleep.
- Sleep Environment (Nidra Sthana):
- Ensure your sleeping environment is conducive to rest—maintain a comfortable room temperature, eliminate noise and light disruptions, and choose a comfortable mattress and pillows.
- Early to Bed:
- Aim to go to bed early, ideally before 10:00 PM, to align with the natural rhythms of the body.
- Quality Sleep (Nidra):
- Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep to allow the body to rejuvenate and prepare for the next day.
It’s important to note that Ayurveda emphasizes individualized routines based on one’s dosha (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) and overall constitution. Consulting an Ayurvedic practitioner for personalized advice is always recommended.
