👉If you sleep in between 11pm -2am it causes pitta dosha increases in body which causes skin diseases, headaches, hair fall and greying of hair. 😱

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.

To stay in sync with nature Ayurveda recommend that it’s best to wake up in Brahma mahurat ( 45 min before sunrise 4.30 to 5.30 or at least by 6am) .If u wake up between 6am and 10 am in spite of completing 8 hours sleep you tend to feel heavy ,slow due to kapha dominance.

Benefits of Waking up Early

🌻Getting up early inject enthusiasm in mind and stimulate all body organ. Improves digestion.
🌻Best treatment for obesity , allergies, arthritis, depression and anxiety.
🌻Best time for yoga pranayam prayer or exercise as body and mind both are strong and active.

For good digestion eat food in particular sequence of taste .

Eating order of food should be according to taste – sweet, sour, salt, pungent , bitter and astringent.

  • For good health eat food with all 6 taste .

Q- Sweet should be first thing to eat?

A. Yes. Anything which taste sweet should be eaten first as they are dominated by earth and water elements which are heavy by nature and due to it they are heavy to digest, at starting of meal digestive strength is maximum which helps to digest sweet tasting food( sugar,rice,wheat etc) easily.

In India we have tradition also to serve sweet first , by eating sweet at the end of meal reduces digestive fire ,cause slow metabolism which is the main cause of many diseases including obesity , thyroid gland disorders, PCOS etc.

  • Sweet taste also has property of mukha upalep( coating) which is also not good for oral health if eaten in last.

Q. So what should be taken in end of meal?

A. Buttermilk which is astringent in taste helps in digestion of food and also clean mouth. Betel leaf or nut can also be eaten.
