My top 7 morning practices

Following a daily routine or Dinacharya is one of the factors that help you lead a healthy life. I firmly believe in the advantages of a healthy morning routine as someone who respects the wisdom of Ayurveda. That’s why I follow a set of morning practices to give a refreshing start to my day as well as to lead a healthy life. 



My morning practices 

Setting the tone for your day early on and keeping a happy and healthy frame of mind will benefit you throughout the day. 

Here are some of the morning practices that help me kick-start even the busiest days of my life in a refreshing manner. 


Waking up early 

One of my favourite morning rituals is getting up at five. As it falls during the Brahma Muhurta, which is seen to be the most auspicious time of day for spiritual practices, this is the ideal time to get up according to Ayurveda. Getting up early can help you feel more refreshed throughout the day and allow you to start the day with a sense of peace and clarity. 


Tongue scraping  

Another important practice in my morning routine is tongue scraping. This simple practice involves using a tongue scraper to remove any buildup on your tongue that may have accumulated overnight. This can help improve your oral hygiene and can also help remove any toxins that may have built up in your mouth. By starting your day with a clean tongue, you can help improve your overall health and well-being. 


Splashing cold water on face  

Splashing cold water on my face is another practice that helps me freshen up in the morning. Eyes are the seat of Pitta – the Dosha that’s responsible for body heat. You can assist cool your eyes and lessen any excess heat in your body by splashing cold water on your face. As you begin your day, this can make you feel more centred and in balance. 


Morning beverage 

Another significant aspect of my everyday regimen is my beverage in the morning. Usually, I have two glasses of my lemon-cinnamon beverage to start the day. Warm water, fresh lemon juice and cinnamon powder are combined to make this straightforward beverage. Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients in this beverage can help strengthen your immune system and promote your general health and well-being. 



Abhyanga is another practice that I follow. I massage my body with organic black sesame oil as part of my morning regimen. Sesame oil is grounding, nourishing, energizing and healing are all qualities of sesame oil. It has a lot of antioxidants and can aid with nail, hair and skin health. You may enhance your general sense of well-being and get your body ready for workout by massaging your body with oil in the morning. 


Morning exercise 

Morning workout is another important practice that I always include in my morning routine. I typically spend around 45 minutes exercising, focusing on light to moderate intensity exercises that help me build strength and stamina. This helps me feel more energized and focused throughout the day and can also help improve my overall health and well-being. 


Warm shower 

I always take a warm shower to round off my daily ritual. It helps ease tense muscles and enhance general well-being. 


I believe that a healthy morning routine is essential for maintaining good health and well-being. By following these seven simple morning practices, you can help improve your overall sense of well-being and start your day off on the right foot.
