Everyday Ayurveda is an effective primer for comprehensive wellness along Ayurvedic tenets. Dr. Bhaswati Bhattacharya, director of the Dinacharya Institute in New York, describes her own journey towards the practice of Ayurveda for her personal wellbeing. An accomplished scientist, Dr. Bhattacharya found her body and mind reacting adversely to the fast-paced life she led as a busy professional. She shares the strategies of dinacharya, the Ayurvedic concept of a daily routine, that helped her get back on the path of health and happiness. Drawing from foundational Ayurvedic texts, Dr. Bhattacharya lists habits to help build a daily routine: from morning ablutions, determining the right nutrition according to digestive energies, exercise, meditation, and yoga, to how jobs are aligned to different temperaments, and the right approach to sleep.
By following daily rituals in line with Ayurveda principles, you will:
- Choose wholesome foods aligned to your individual constitution
- Keep your body and mind aligned with meditation, yoga, and the right foods
- Reap the mental health benefits of a daily discipline
