Ayurveda Rituals: 9 Step Simple Ayurveda Morning Routine
Let me tell you one thing that once you start practicing this set of habits, I may tell you honestly it can be a little difficult in the start, you’ll feel like a Disney princess who wakes up with all the grace and beauty and never gets tired whatever the time it is.
Step forward and sneak into Ayurveda Morning Routine to make your mornings more lively and happening as every day is a new day!
1. Wake up early and set your intentions for the day:
The first golden rule is to get up at early dawn to have an exposure of pure air and the feel of soft and slightly warm sun rays at your body.
This is the best thing to give yourself at the start of the day it will clear your thoughts as this is a peaceful time where there is you with you.
With a clear mind, you can have a better to-do list for the day.
2. Mouth cleaning:
Your mouth is a gateway to your stomach. You must clean it to have a healthy food intake.
Overnight heat gets trapped in your mouth and dries it out. Take a sip of cool water, swish it and spit it out when it gets warmer.
Repeat it 3-4 times. Start the day with hydrating your most exposed part of the body and splash some water on your face.
3. Tongue scraping:
You must buy a tongue scrapper as the tongue gets the white thick coating named as “ama” (toxins).
These need to be scraped thoroughly because your clean tongue lets you know the tastes better and get rid of the odor.
4. Brush your teeth:
Tapping the teeth together for a few times will stir some energy receptors that lie in your mouth.
5. Oil pulling:
Use organic sesame oil and swish it around your mouth until it becomes liquid. It cleanses and protects your gums, removes bacteria, whitens your teeth and also improves your voice.
Gently massage the gums with remaining oil using the index finger. It will stimulate gum tissues and cleanses digestive fire.
6. Ease your breathing:
To have clean nostrils that help you to have a better voice, vision and mental clarity you must put 3-4 drops of sesame oil into your nose.
It clears the sinus and helps you develop your prana and increases your intelligence.
7. Clean yourself (bathe):
Your body also needs to get off the heat or fatigue accumulated overnight. Plunge into rightly temperate water according to your dosha.
Let me give a simple clue:
- cool water for Pittas
- lukewarm for Vatas
- warmer for Kaphas.
8. Morning tea:
It is not some regular tea; it is ginger lemon honey tea, also known as “Easy Detox”.
Here is a quick set of steps to make it.
1 cup water, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1-inch fresh ginger root (peeled and thinly sliced), 1 tablespoon honey
- Pour 1 cup boiling water in the teapot, add ginger in it and let it steep for 3 minutes.
- Now put lemon juice and honey in your favorite cup.
- Strain the ginger tea into the cup.
- Stir in honey/lemon juice as desired.
Take this tea before anything else as it cleanses any toxins from last night and regulates your digestive system.
9. Eat breakfast in silence:
You better eat a healthy breakfast and keeping silent while having your breakfast.
Be present and know what you’re eating. Mindful eating helps you to eat less and to not fill your stomach haphazardly that can cause digestion problems.
