5 Ayurvedic ways to eliminate stress


Stress is part and parcel of modern life.  However, stress can become a chronic condition if not managed properly.

 

Here are 5 Ayurvedic ways to handle stress.

1. Massage – Who can say no to a refreshing massage? A short 5-moment head and neck massage is enough to dial down a lot of your work stress. It helps get back to your work with more vigour. A massage with medicated oils is good for relaxing the muscles and relieving stiffness around head and neck. The more authentic practices like Shirodhara, Abhyanga/Pizhichil, Nasyam, etc are proven stress busters with detoxifying and rejuvenating effects

 

2. Eat Healthy – In need of stress relief? The answer lies in your diet. An unhealthy diet throws your digestive system into disarray leading to many health issues. You know that high fibre foods are high on health too. So, start incorporating leafy foods and vegetables into your diet.  Also include nuts like almonds and walnuts more in the diet. There are herbal concoctions like Brahma Rasayanam, Brahmi capsules and Ashwagandha capsules to relax the brain, clam the body and promote sound sleep. These Ayurvedic preparations help reinforce memory and could be utilized for stress-related conditions like depression.

 

3. Yoga – Stress is ever present. Fortunately, we’ve got yoga, which is proven to help reduce stress and its health risks. The best part? There are quite simple ones to start off like Child’s Posture or Bala-asana and Corpse Pose or Shavasana.  Yoga helps avoid other lifestyle disorders like obesity and helps to enhance your mind-set. Whether you are young or old, fat or fit, Yoga has the power to transform your body and mind.

 

4. Meditation – Anxiety, as they say, starts with the brain. If you find yourself anxious, tense and worried, try meditation. Spending even a few minutes in meditation can restore your calm and inner peace. Meditation provides a sense of calm, peace and balance that promotes your emotional well-being and health as well. Practiced for thousands of years, meditation was originally meant to help deepen the understanding of the mystical forces of life. Nowadays, meditation is commonly used for relaxation and stress reduction.

 

 

5. Inhale Deeply – Take a 5-moment break from your busy schedule. Sit up straight with your eyes shut and a hand on your gut. Gradually breathe in through your nose, feeling the breath begin at your nose and work its path to the mid-region. Reverse this as you breathe out through your mouth. Some fundamental breathing activities like Pranayama could be polished for better effect.
