WHAT'S YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION FOR YOUR HEALTH?
by Harsh Shah on Dec 31, 2022
Losing weight, reducing social media usage, and quitting habits like smoking and alcohol, These are all admirable goals. But we make the same New Year's resolutions every year and then never follow them. So, for 2023, why not shake things up a little and try coming up with some new resolutions?
Every year, millions of people make New Year's resolutions in the hope of bringing about positive change. Every year, the recurring themes are a more active approach to health and fitness, improved finances, and learning new things for personal and professional development. More than a few of the top ten most common resolutions will look familiar to you:
So here are some Ayurvedic ways of targeting healthy goals for the coming year 2023!
Understand Your Ayurvedic Nature.
This includes your prakriti (body's natural doshas) as well as your vikriti (your current imbalance doshas). The better you understand your doshic imbalance, the better you will be able to stay on track. Prakriti is your ideal baseline, which you must restore. This goal is within your grasp because it is already a part of you. Learn to recognize Vata, Pitta, and Kapha foods, behaviors, and environments. Take note of their corresponding gunas or qualities as well like. Once you've mastered your vikriti, you'll have a better understanding of how the substances you consume and the actions you take affect your state.
Follow Your Doshic Diet
Once you've determined your prakriti and vikriti, you're ready to make some dietary changes, such as adding foods you like and eliminating foods you don't. Examine the list that applies to you and determine which foods and food qualities you require to restore your balance. Rather than attempting to change your diet all at once, begin with food categories and work with them one at a time, for example, fruits-vegetables, and grains until you have consciously changed your dietary habits. Start paying attention to your body and how it reacts to vikriti-balancing and dosha-destabilizing foods. This will eventually become second nature, and your body will lead you in the direction of its preferences.
Focus More on Cooked Meals
You can be an active participant in your healing once you know which foods are best for your vikriti. Make a commitment to cook at least one more meal per week than you currently do. You don't have to be a master chef to experiment with different dishes. You will not only save money, but you will also be able to prepare food that is fresh, nourishing, and tailored to your specific dietary needs.
Pay Heed To Your Digestion.
According to Ayurveda, if we have a strong Agni, we are more likely to be free of many diseases; thus, Agni, or the digestive fire, is very important. According to Ayurveda, if we have a strong Agni, we are more likely to be disease-free. Because water extinguishes fires, you should avoid drinking excessively before, during, or after meals. You could drink a cup of cumin, coriander, and fennel tea which aids digestion with your meals. A small slice of fresh ginger with a pinch of mineral salt and a squeeze of fresh lime before eating is one way to rekindle Agni. When eating, pay attention to your food. Set aside tasks. Take digestive herbs to relieve gas, bloating, and heartburn.
Add Some Flavours To Your LIFE
Indian spices not only have delicious aromatic flavors, but they also help with digestion. Spices like turmeric, fennel, ginger, cumin, clove, and coriander can make your vegetables, soups, and lentils more exciting and digestible. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom are also excellent additions to oatmeal and desserts. Spices should be chosen based on their effect on your doshas. Are the spices warming or cooling? Are they more pungent or astringent? Sweet or sour? Your taste buds and body will be grateful for the delectable journey!
Get Your Fitness Regime
Include exercises that are suggested for your doshic imbalance
While Vata enjoys aerobic, fast-paced exercises like running, what it really needs are activities that are balanced and grounding. Restorative yoga and long walks can help to balance the Vata dosha.
Pitta strives for perfection in everything, including athletics. Pitta people would benefit from participating in sports without keeping score. They must also avoid exercising around noon when the sun is at its zenith. Swimming and dancing are great exercises for pitta people, but hot yoga should be avoided.
Getting Kapha to get off the couch can be difficult. Cardio exercises are required to raise their heart rate and promote perspiration. Because Kapha thrives on routine, enrolling in weekly classes is beneficial. Yoga is appropriate for every doshic type.
Seasonal transitions occur at both the inner and outer levels. Your body must adjust to changes in temperature and weather. If possible, prepare your internal environment by performing a week-long panchakarma under the supervision of an Ayurvedic practitioner. If not, perform a mini-panchakarma at home. Give yourself a daily oil massage with the appropriate oil. Nasya drops can be used to lubricate the nasal passages.
Consume basmati rice, dal, and some mildly spiced cooked vegetables. Tea is made with cumin, coriander, and fennel. Practice restorative yoga. Journal and meditate. At night, take Triphala or Psyllium Husk ie; Isagbol. Reduce your time spent on electronic devices. To the greatest extent possible, practice silence.
Track Your Sleeping Habits
Insomnia is a very common condition. Many people have difficulty falling or staying asleep. Begin by going to bed by 10 p.m. and establishing a regular time to sleep and wake up. Keep electronics away from your bedroom. Turn off the computer for at least one hour before going to bed. Take a warm Epsom salt bath. Before going to bed, drink a warm glass of milk or almond milk spiced with nutmeg, turmeric, and cardamom. Sleeping with your head near a lot of plugs is not a good idea. Charge your phone and other electronic devices in a different room. Check that the blinds are properly closed. Apply Brahmi or Bhringaraj oil to the soles of your feet and the crown of your head. While lying in your bed, perform Savasana ie;Corpse Pose.
Understand Nature's Natural Rhythms.
Your body has its own intelligence, which will guide you to greater health and vitality if you align with it. Rise with the sun and go to be as early as possible. Consume fruits and vegetables that are in season. Lunch should be eaten around noon, when the sun is at its highest and should be your heaviest meal. After sunset, eat a light meal followed by a heavy meal. Consume food at regular intervals. In the summer, eat cooler foods, and in the fall and winter, eat warmer foods. Allow for natural desires. Encourage your body to adjust to a regular, healthy schedule. Don't be swayed by dietary or health fads; instead, pay attention to your own bodily cycles.
Ayurveda is a science that evolves over time. Everything you do has an effect. Even if you are not diligent in your daily practices or strict in your diet, you will not fall out of balance overnight. Be gentle with the anxiety of Vata, the perfection of pitta, and the inertia of Kapha. Set reasonable, short-term goals. Enjoy your life and be kind to yourself. Do your best while remaining mindful. Keep your long-term goals in mind and believe that you will achieve them, dosha-balancing step by step.
Despite the best of intentions, many people struggle to follow through on their plans after the glow of a brand-new year wears off. Only 46% of people who made New Year's resolutions succeeded. That means that more than half of those who set a goal for the new year will achieve it.
Non-resolvers, or people who did not make a New Year's resolution but had a goal they wanted to achieve that year, were also included in the study. Only 4% of non-resolvers succeeded in their goals, a far worse outcome than those who made a New Year's resolution.
