Achieivng Balance In Your Body For A Healthier Day

May 21, 2021

If you have never heard of Ayurveda before, it is one of the world’s oldest whole-body healing systems. It is a Sanskrit word that literally translates to “the knowledge of longevity” or “the wisdom of life.” It is one of the most powerful and sophisticated mind-body health systems, which is all about helping people to remain healthy and lead a happy life. Those who teach Ayurveda help their students to connect their mind and body so they can achieve the right balance. It is all about awareness. Whether you are interested in Ayurveda or not, we can all take aspects of it to better our lives. Below, we will take a look at some essential things to do to ensure you remain de-stressed throughout the day.


Drink water the right way

We all know the importance of drinking water every day, but are you drinking water the right way? According to Ayurveda, you should opt for warm water or room temperature water over iced. Classical texts deem ice indigestible. You should also carry a water bottle with you wherever you go, as it is much better to sip water throughout the day, rather than downing two large glasses in one go.

Keep a journal

Use a journal to harness those sparks of creativity and inspiration. Every evening, review your journal and add an entry. If you suffer from work-related anxiety, this can really help. Write down a few things that you are looking forward to about going to work the next day. You can read this, and it will give you a real sense of focus, so you can ensure your energy is channelled in the right way. You will be able to focus your attentions on the activities, people, and things about work that make you feel good, and this will help the anxiety to drift away.

Give yourself a sesame oil message

This can be done in the morning before you go to work, or you can take a travel-sized bottle of sesame oil to work with you and give yourself a quick hand massage as a simple self-care routine at your desk. All you need to do is pour a small amount of the oil into the palm of your hand, and then massage in a circular motion, massaging your palms, wrists, knuckles, and fingers. This is a great way to revitalise your body.

Drink lemon water in the morning

Ayurveda teaches students to begin the day with a warm cup of lemon water as soon as they have woken up. It is also wise to take a lemon with you to work, so you can squeeze it into a mug of warm water throughout the day. This will gently stimulate your digestive tract and give you a much-needed boost of Vitamin C. Of course, if you are unwell you should still seek adult medicine, don’t just rely on lemon water.

Eat some shilajit

Shilajit is a black or pale-brown organic form of tar. While eating tar doesn’t sound like the most beneficial or enjoyable experience in the world, shilajit is the exception. It is one of the most prized herbs in Ayurveda medicine, and it has long been cherished for the many health benefits it provides. One of these benefits is enhanced performance, which is why shilajit is perfect for a hectic day at work. The organic material improves energy production, acting at cellular level to nourish cells, leading to faster recovery, more alertness, and better endurance, so you can finish the rest of the tasks in front of you with greater ease.

Eat a seasonal lunch

Ayurvedic teachings reveal that our digestion is aligned with the sun, meaning it is at its strongest at midday. Because of this, lunch should be viewed as your main meal. You should also eat in line with the seasons in order to stay balanced, which is what Ayurveda is all about.

Go for a walk

If you are feeling stressed at work after a difficult task or meeting, go for a walk. This is a simple Ayurvedic practice that will encourage circulation and quiet the mind. Go for a scenic walk by woodland or a park if possible. Science has shown that the phytoncides released from trees lowers our sympathetic nervous system response, blood pressure, cortisol, and adrenaline.


All in all, whether you practice Ayurveda or not, you can still benefit from the principles of Ayurvedic teachings and apply them to your work life so that you can reduce stress and improve performance. From drinking lemon water to eating in line with the seasons, small changes can go a long way.
