Humans are creatures of habit. However, it is critical to maintain touch with our natural rhythms in order to stay grounded in the present moment and appreciate nature's gifts. Here are some simple ayurvedic morning rituals for making your mornings more grounded and peaceful.
Waking up early can be healthy for you! It will help balance your dosha. Though it may be a challenge, in the beginning, try to wake up and get ready for the day by 6:00 a.m., when Kapha time starts. You’ll develop a habit of sleeping early at night too!
Next, make sure to urinate first thing in the morning. During the night, your body will have been clearing out toxins and moving them into your elimination channels. Ayurveda recommends that you have one bowel movement each morning before the sun comes up. At night, your body takes a break from digestion and focuses on calming down; in the morning, when you wake up, your body moves into an absorption cycle. If you've had a proper bowel movement in the morning, you're less likely to feel fatigued or irritable later in the day. Also, practice oil pulling. Swishing oil in your mouth for 60 seconds can help reduce the amount of tartar buildup on your teeth, leaving you with healthier gums. Also, if you see a film on your tongue in the morning, it's a sign that your body has been working hard to rid itself of digestive impurities.
Some people find it helpful to visualize bright light flowing down their spine while breathing deeply into their lungs. This helps clear out mental clutter so that they can focus solely on their breaths without distraction!
Morning meditation prepares your mind and body for the challenges of the day. Studies show that Transcendental Meditation helps control stress hormones, such as cortisol, and increases the brain's chemical serotonin, which reduces stress and anxiety.
Yoga practice helps increase blood flow to your vital organs and activate your body’s relaxation response. This is beneficial for better digestion, an improved nervous system, and overall well-being. Alternate nostril breathing, or Pranayama, helps coordinate the left and right hemispheres of your brain. Yoga and meditation can be a great addition to your Ayurvedic morning rituals.
"Ayurveda teaches that if you start your day with a yoga practice, you will feel more alert and focused. Yoga is an ancient practice that stretches and strengthens your body while relaxing the mind. It can help you get in touch with your body, mind, and spirit to live a more balanced life.”
"You can also practice Abhyanga or self-massage with warm oil as a part of your Ayurvedic mourning routine. It tones your skin and muscles while calming your mind and nervous system. Massaging your body daily with warm oil helps soothe the entire nervous system"
No matter how your lifestyle is, you can fit Ayurvedic morning rituals into it. The key is to do what you can and not beat yourself up if you miss a step or two. We hope that these tips have given you a good idea of how to start your morning right by setting yourself up for success in the day ahead. By using Ayurveda as a guide for your morning rituals, we believe that you will notice improvements in how calm and clear-headed you feel throughout the day.
