Know what is the best time for exercise and why!!

Exercise or vyayam 🏃‍♂️🧘‍♂️is a part of ayurvedic dincharya🌞 or daily routine, now it is very important to know the right time of excercise as now a days people are becoming health conscious and have started doing yoga,gym or other physical activities 🏊‍♂️🏋️‍♂️🚴‍♂️to maintain health but they are doing excercise as per their convenient timings🤔 which sometimes instead of doing good can cause harm😳.

🌱Ayurveda divide day🌞 into three parts-
🕕 from 6am to 10 am kapha dosha dominant part,
🕙10am – 2pm pitta dosha dominate part
🕑2 pm – 6pm vata dosha dominant part of day.

👉Each dosha has some function in body like vata dosha🌀 is responsible for every activity or movement of body so during exercise it tends to increase so if you exercise in vata dominant time you feel more tired as vayu is already high in body.

🌻Pitta time is also not suitable for exercise as pitta is fire🔥 due to exercise temperature of body increase which in result aggravat pitta dosha.

🌼kapha dosha which is slow, cold, stable and causes sluggishness in body 🌊, exercising during kapha dominant time helps in counter these effects of kapha and you feel more energetic, strong and fresh after exercise, as kapha dosha also give strength to body it will become easy to do exercise during this time. If you exercise in evening or in night it may disturb natural sleep rhythm.

👉So according to ayurveda ideal time to exercise🏃‍♀️ is from 6am to 10 am.
