Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “The Science of Life.” Ayurvedic knowledge originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is often called the “Mother of All Healing.” It stems from the ancient Vedic culture and was taught for many thousands of years in an oral tradition from accomplished masters to their disciples.
The philosophy of Ayurveda teaches a series of conceptual systems characterized by balance and disorder, health and disease. To be healthy, harmony must exist between the purpose for healing, thoughts, feelings and physical action.
The basic difference between Ayurveda and Western allopathic medicine is important to understand. Western allopathic medicine currently tends to focus on symptomatology and disease, and primarily uses drugs and surgery to rid the body of pathogens or diseased tissue. Ayurveda does not focus on disease. Rather, Ayurveda maintains that all life must be supported by energy in balance.
Stress is undeniable part of the hectic modern lifestyle. How well one is able to tackle stress depends upon his/her emotional and mental strength and stability. These are 5 ways to tackle them with the help of Ayurveda.
- Breathe Deeply – As simple as it may sound, to breathe deeply is to slow the world down and take some time for yourself. To start with, take the much needed 5 minute break from your stressful routine. Some basic breathing exercises like Praanayam can be practised for a better concentration.
- Massage – A soothing relaxing massage is something which no one will say a no to. A short 5 minute head and neck massage will help ease out half your work worries. It will also help you get back to your work with added energy.
- Meditation – Since the mind is where stress begins, having the ability to calm it down helps a great deal. A daily investment in meditation for 10-15 minutes helps one clear the clutter and bear the storm.
- Exercises and yoga – Whether it’s yoga or any other relaxing form of exercise, it works much in the same way as meditation because it gives you the time to be alone with your thoughts (or an opportunity to let them go). It also helps prevent other health issues like obesity and improves your mood too.
- Eat healthy – Unhealthy food can not only upset the digestive system but can also cause depression. Include lots of seasonal fruits and green vegetables in your daily diet. This will clean up your system and improve your mental health. Choose foods which are high in fibre content and make you feel light.
