4 ESSENTIAL AYURVEDIC TIPS FOR A STRESS-FREE SUMMER
The summer is around the corner and a welcome change after a few months of chilly weather. The season of sunshine, holidays, flowers, and many other things is about to start in a few days’ time. However, considering the amount of stress we take upon ourselves in this current day and age, it is imperative to focus on reducing the stress-levels and simultaneously get a grip of the Ayurvedic composition of the body. It is essential to understand that when stress levels build-up inside the body, it leads to irritation, impatience, anger, and more which are all signs of Sadhaka Pitta – an element of Pitta than controls the emotions in our body.
As one of the leading Kerala ayurvedic centers in Pune, we have shed light on a few key points that will help our readers lead a stress-free life in the coming months.
Here are some effective tips to remain calm and collected during the summer!
1.Take Some Rest
While achieving your financial and career goals is important, it is also essential to understand that one should also take some rest and make time for downtime. One should try to deviate from their stressful life and relax and give their body and soul enough time. One of the most effective ways to calm the overworked Pitta is to take some time off and slow down. We urge our readers to indulge in meditation, journaling, and similar activities to ensure their stress-levels dwindle down.
As per the Ayurvedic scriptures, food is medicine and your diet plays an important role in cooling you down. It is essential to stick to a Pitta-pacifying diet that is more inclined toward bitter, sweet, and astringent flavor profiles. Avoid consuming spicy, salty, pungent, and oily food items during the summers. Coconut water is another food item that is highly recommended during summers which lower the temperature of the body and ensure minimal stress-levels.
3.Increase Intake of Cool Beverages
During the summers, it goes without saying how important it is to stay hydrated. We advocate carrying a bottle of water at all times. In addition, one should also keep sipping cooling beverages including coconut water, fresh fruit & vegetable juices.
It is important to understand that Pita and Vatadosha can lead to compromised sleep. Once the biological clock kicks in, our body starts to feel sleepy after a certain point of time. Avoiding frequent late-night movies and usage of electronic devices late at night. Try to wind up your important tasks before 10 PM during which, the Pitta evening cycle kicks in. Wash your face with rose water, massage your feet, and listen to soothing music to keep your stress levels in check.
