In Ayurveda, a good night’s sleep is essential not just for our physical health, but also for our mental and emotional well-being. Sleep is when the body rests and the mind rejuvenates. During our sleep, our body repairs tissues flushes out toxins, and retains memory. With an inadequate amount of sleep the three doshas the Vata, Pitta, and Kapha get disrupted. Let’s discover how Ayurveda can help in acquiring a blissful slumber.

Have a Dincharya (Nidra Krama): In Ayurveda, it is important to have a regular sleep-wake cycle that aligns with the circadian rhythms of the body. 

Establish a Sleep Environment (Nidra Sthana): Make sure to create a sleep sanctuary for yourself by minimizing extreme noise, light, and other distractions. It is advised to keep your bedroom cool, dark, and quiet. 

Avoid Screens at night: Avoid doing stimulating activities such as mindless scrolling on the phone, or watching TV as the blue light emitted from these devices can tamper with your sleep schedule. 

Use Herbs (Dravya Nidra): Incorporate herbs like Ashwagandha, Brahmi, and Jatamansi to help calm yourself and facilitate deeper relaxation. 

Follow Ayurveda Wind-Down Rituals (Shamana Karma): Instead of rushing into bed, create a relaxing pre-sleep routine inspired by Ayurveda’s “Shamana Karma” such as gentle yoga poses, meditation, and specific breathing exercises (pranayama) to calm your mind and nervous system. 

Have an Oil Massage: Use warm oil and gentle Abhyanga massage movements with sesame or coconut oil to help with a better night’s sleep.

Be Mindful of your dosha

According to Ayurveda, everyone has a unique mix of three energies called vata, kapha, and pitta. These energies are based on the elements like air and water, and they influence your body, mind, and feelings. Here are some of the ways by which one can comprehend their dosha and achieve better sleep

Vata (Air): If you have a Vata imbalance, avoid caffeine and alcohol and take a warm oil massage. 

Pitta (Fire): Avoid spicy foods before bed and take cool showers in the evening. 

Kapha (Water):  If you have a Kapha imbalance, avoid napping during the day and get some light exercise in the evening. Have a light dinner and avoid greasy foods. 

By incorporating these simple yet effective Ayurveda tips into your daily routine, you can unlock the door to a deeper, more rejuvenating sleep, and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.
