Good sleep is key to good health. Yet educated people of all ages and backgrounds all over the world suffer from lack of quality sleep because their minds won’t shut down at night.  In order to retrain the body to sleep when you want it to sleep & reclaim your natural birthright to renew at night, sync with this simple and fun 11 step Ayurveda Healthy Lifestyle ritual.

1. If you want to be in bed slumbering sweetly at 10PM, wake up and get out of bed no later than 6am.  Vata time is 2-6 am/pm, Kapha time is 6-10am/pm, and Pitta time is 10-2am/pm. If you wake up in the Vata time you will feel more energized, whereas if you sleep into the Kapha hours you will have a harder time waking up.

2. Drink a maximum of two (2) caffeinated beverage no later than 2pm and that is all for the day. Consuming caffeine such coffee or tea late in the day is a direct request to your mind/body to stay up all night. If you need more energy in the afternoon, have a little chocolate and a peppermint tea and move on to the next step.

3. Exercise. Exercise. Exercise. We need to get our heart rates up, sweat, and use our muscles every day! I like to lift weights three times a week and do something like hike, cycle, jog, or swim daily. Find something you enjoy and stick to it or switch up if you get bored easily. If you exercise during your lunch break, chances are you will not be tired at 3pm.



4. Get a little sunshine. Our eyes need natural sunlight. Synthetic indoor lighting and wearing sunglasses outside confuses our body’s biological clock. Our body wants to know, “When should I sleep?” So get some sunlight in the early morning and again in the evening when you can skip the shades.
