The Secret to a Productive Day

Follow these 5 simple morning rituals.


You are not a morning person, are you? Then this is for you. If you are indeed a morning person, then listen up: there's more to the morning than waking up and putting on your shoes (though those things still count). In fact, your day starts long before you think of getting out of bed. So, if you want to be at your best or even just want to feel happier every day, learn how Ayurveda can help by adopting these simple rituals into your routine. 


Following Ayurvedic morning rituals is an excellent way to begin the day, and it does not have to be difficult or time-consuming. You can start with a few simple steps and build from there.

5 Simple Ayurvedic Morning Rituals

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.

1. Wake Up Early


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!

2. Cleanse Your Body


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.

3. Meditate and Practice Yoga


Meditation is a great tool that can help you discover your inner self, connect you with the universe, and even bring clarity to your life. While there are many types of meditation, here are some tips on how to meditate according to Ayurveda:


  • Go somewhere quiet where you will not be disturbed for at least 15 minutes.
  • Sit comfortably on the chair or floor — whatever feels best for you. 
  • Close your eyes and focus on breathing deeply through your nose and exhaling from your mouth. Try counting as you inhale and exhale (inhaling = 1/2 of a count; exhaling = 1/2 of a count).

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.”

4. Journaling and Gratitude



Journaling is a powerful way to start your day by reflecting on what you're grateful for. Gratitude is a great emotion to be in, and the more we practice it, the easier it becomes.

To journal, write down three things that happened yesterday that made you happy or proud of yourself. It could be something as simple as being able to lift heavy boxes at work or an accomplishment such as getting an “A” on your test.

This will ensure that every morning starts with a positive attitude and helps you focus on what's important in life—your health!

5. Start the Day with a Warm Breakfast


As you wake up, your body is dehydrated. Drinking warm lemon water first is the best way to rehydrate. The citric acid in lemons can help stimulate digestion, which makes you feel more awake and alert. Avoid drinking coffee or any other beverages besides water during the first hour of waking.  

Ayurveda recommends eating warm food in the morning for a number of reasons. Your body can more easily digest warm food, which will help prevent indigestion later in the day. In addition, eating a hot breakfast allows you to create an inner fire within yourself—a fire that will burn throughout the rest of your day and keep you warm against cold winds or chilly thoughts!

"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"

Set Your Day for Success

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.
