Practice Meditation

We all complain about our daily life stress and pressure. In out chaotic lifestyle, it is very necessary for us to find a few moments of solace. Daily meditating for about 20 mins will help us achieve that solace. Meditation has the proven power to destress you and help you focus on yourself more than distracting every time. It keeps us calm and induces the power for better understanding in our mind. Meditation will definitely help us cope up with our daily life’s troubles and activities.

Ayurvedic eating habits

Ayurveda recommends one to eat hot and food seasoned with spices. The reason behind the same is proper digestion. Also keep your body hydrated by drinking fluids at regular intervals as it helps to expel toxins out of our body. Also, eating slices of ginger with rock salt sprinkled over it or having few drops of lemon before meal will prevent you from gas troubles. Ayurveda recommends one to eat only wgen one is hungry. Hungriness indicates that your previous meal is digested completely and you can eat. But eating when not hungry will add to problems like weight gain and will incur poor digestion.

**Though Ayurveda has a solution for everyone, the solutions and tips are often generalized ones. One must always see what actually suits one’s body and practice the same.
