Difficulty Sleeping?
Ayurveda Has Answers!

Ever had difficulty drifting off to sleep? Maybe you wake up early and can't fall back to sleep? Or have difficulty getting out of bed in the morning!

Learn more about your dosha and find out how to rest more peacefully today!

All three doshas - vata, pitta and kapha - dominate a particular time of day as well as a season.

During the day, vata rules 2am-6am, kapha rules 6am-10am and pitta rules 10am-2pm, when vata rules again from 2pm-6pm, kapha from 6pm-10pm and pitta from 10pm-2am.

Therefore, if you are a pitta (meaning you have a pitta dosha imbalance), then eating your main meal during the height of pitta's strength, at lunch time, is important; so is going to bed by 10 pm. If you don't make it in bed by 10 pm, remember to turn off the tv and computer early enough so your mind and body have time to relax.

If you are awake at 10 pm - you may have difficulty falling asleep, as pitta while begin to increase and mental agitation may occur more easily, giving way to a second wind, which only further delays your sleep. If this occurs, you may want to rub ghee on your temples and the soles of your feet. This can help you ease into sleep by relaxing the mind and body.

However, if you have a vata imbalance, you may find yourself waking up early in the morning and not being able to fall back to sleep. Whereas a person with excess kapha would find it difficult to get out of bed when the alarm goes off.

Being aware of how these and other principles of Ayurveda doshas govern different time frames and seasons can help you plan your activities as well as prepare you to mitigate the stressful situations you encounter in your daily lives. By using the knowledge of Ayurveda's home remedies, herbal remedies and diet and exercise, you can gradually learn how to restore balance and enhanced immunity and vitality to your whole being!
