Ayurveda Dinacharya / Day Routine

🌸Let’s begin with the KAPHA TIME of day which begins at 6 am to 10 am🌸 . ✿ Ayurveda teaches that it’s best to get up in the morning before 6:00 am because at 6am kapha becomes dominant (Kapha is the energy of water and earth, and thus is heavy and sluggish.) AVOID: Waking up during kapha time, which is between 6:00 am and 10:00 am as 👆qualities will increase within you - making you feel lazy ✿ . ✿ It’s best to get up before 6:00 am, and engage in some early morning activity to get your heart pumping ✿ . ✿ Eat a light breakfast that is well spiced. (big meal will only increase heaviness) ✿ ———————————————————————— 🌸Kapha time flows into PITTA TIME, which begins at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm🌸 . ✿ Pitta is a time that the sun is highest in the sky. During this time of day, heat will naturally predominate in our bodies & minds. So, we are propelled to be productive and accomplish our goals ✿ AVOID: Spending time in the direct sun or engaging in vigorous activity if you are predominantly pitta, since those with a pitta nature are likely to experience an increase of heat symptoms including burning indigestion, skin rashes etc ✿ . ✿ lunch is when you can most indulge in a big meal, as you are best able to digest it at this time ✿ ———————————————————————– 🌸The pitta time of day fades as the VATA TIME of day begins, at about 2:00 pm until 6:00 pm🌸 . ✿ Vata, which is made of the elements air and space (ether), governs the time of transition. The naturally light, etheric qualities of this time allows creativity and expansive thinking to peak, making it a great time to engage in creative pursuits and problem solving ✿ . AVOID: Those with vata nature may feel agitation, so minimize excess sensory input, loud noises etc . ✿ Instead, ground yourself in a peaceful environment, and grab a cup of herbal tea ✿ . ✿ Vata is the most delicate of the doshas, and the most likely to become imbalanced. By keeping it pacified at this time of day, it’s creative gifts can manifest and imbalances avoided ✿ THIS BRINGS US TO THE END OF DAY CYCLE
