What I love about Ayurveda is the emphasis on prevention of disease. Rather than waiting until there is a problem, you can strengthen your whole system and immunity by integrating the practices of Ayurveda into your life.We need to live in accord with the cycles of nature, and of course our own nature. Understanding our basic constitution enables us to establish an appropriate and regular daily routine.A lifestyle is nothing but the long-term pattern made up of daily routines and habits. Having a daily routine called “dinacharya” in Ayurveda is one of the most importnat elements. When the body adjusts to a daily routine and learns it can count on it, the nervous system can relax.We all know what happens when our habits are irregular; when we eat too much or eat the wrong food at the wrong time. Similarly when we sleep too little or too much; we can’t function as well. Too little exercise, or the wrong type of exercise can disrupt our equilibrium. In establishing a routine that suits us, our whole system works more effectively and we have the stamina and resilience to cope with what life throws at us. The reward is that you will feel healthier and stronger, and be less prone to sickness and disease.
