Sleep Well

The aspects of happiness, nourishment, strength, virility, knowledge, and long life are attained by sound and timely sleep. Sleep is the time for rebuilding and reconstruction. It is an anabolic event and is held to be as best as the divine elixir. If sleep is lost, all the doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha will be vitiated as per Ayurveda.

Do you know how much you should sleep while traveling? Listen to your body's demands and decide based on that. Traveling can be harsh to the body and your body needs adequate rest. So, plan well, giving enough time to rest. Don’t overdo while roaming and be sure to give yourself enough time for little breaks.



Practice Mindful Eating

You should be sure to take the right quantity of food, since it is quantity which helps maintain proper digestive power. Avoid raw salads and uncooked food while traveling since it aggravates Vata dosha. Have simple, warm, and grounding meals. Do not skip your breakfast, thinking you will have a scrumptious meal at noon.
