May 20, 2019 Jiva Ayurveda 0

From the moment the alarm goes off in the morning, you want to do nothing more than return to the coziness of your bed and tuck yourself even deeper under the quilt. If hibernation were an option for us, our cities would be full of snoring humans!

But work doesn’t stop. We have to shrug off that laziness and find the energy to get through the day. Thankfully, our tips will help you fight sluggishness while improving your immune system. Summer or winter, nothing shall not get the better of us!

1. Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

When the temperature is low, your body doesn’t process food easily. As a result, you start accumulating body fat, which makes you slow and sluggish. A great way to stay healthy and active is to replace one meal of the day (preferably lunch) with a diet of fruits and vegetables.

2. Organic and Nutrient rich Foods

Whole grains like barley and quinoa are good sources of nutrients. Milk and dairy products help increase “ojas”, giving your immunity a real boost. Avoid sugar and sweets as they make you feel lethargic. Our special sugar-free Chyawanprash is an ideal diet supplement all year round, but it is especially beneficial during cold months.

3. All Food And No Play Makes Jack A Dull Boy

To beat that sloth-like feeling that haunts you when you wake up, keep yourself active throughout the day. Yoga and meditation in the morning can go a long way in energizing you. But, don’t let it end there. Walk around in the sun during the day and exercise for fifteen-twenty minutes in the evening. All this activity will rev your body’s engine and keep it in mint condition throughout the year and make you feel awesome every morning.
