5 night rituals to have energy and feel good

February 04, 2017

According to Ayurveda, 18:22 p.m. to XNUMX:XNUMX p.m. are very important hours to recover your energy. Last week, Yogaye gave you tips for create a morning routine. This time, we share with you some night rituals that are essential to nurture our energy, creativity and joy. What Ayurveda tells us The day is divided into cycles that influence both exterior and interior energy: during the day it is the energy of fire (10am to 14pm) and air (14pm to 18pm) that predominate, that is, energies oriented towards the exterior. From 18:22 p.m. to XNUMX:XNUMX p.m., kapha energy allows us to unite and have enough energy for the next day. Ask yourself: in general, what do I do at this time of day? Once the work is finished, many times we stay in this same dynamic of undertaking activities and doing things. Hence the importance of taking a short break to separate the activities of the day and thus be more present to our surroundings.
  • Viparita Karani: legs against the wall
When you get home, take off your shoes and put your legs at 90 degrees against the wall, close your eyes and feel all the energy of the day fall. Watch your breath. If emotions come, it is normal, it means that the energy circulates again. Simply observe without judging.
  • Look for people who celebrate rest
To prevent your mind from keeping you too alert during these kapha hours, surround yourself with people who are trying to keep up with you. You can coordinate to go see the sunset or walk in a park. Seek the company of people who celebrate rest!
  • Turn off and wake up your senses
Our eyes and ears are organs that tire easily. When you get home, instead of immediately turning on your computer, TV, or music, take a break. Light an incense and take 10 minutes to do nothing. If doing nothing is too difficult, awaken your senses by massaging an oil on the back of your neck or feet, drinking an infusion , or eating in silence with mindfulness.
  • Ojas
According to Ayurveda, Ojas is a liquid similar to the texture of honey that allows us to feel good in our lives. The more you have Ojas, the more you like your life. In transport or just arriving home and before turning on all kinds of devices, why not make a small visualization? Imagine a golden light like honey coming down from the top of your head to your feet. This texture carries with it all the actions, the thoughts of the day. Visualizing this honey texture will allow you to more easily transition from vata to kapha energy. Try and see the effects!
  • Install a ritual to sleep better
Before going to sleep you can put on a softer light and engage in quieter activities such as reading or meditating. You can also give yourself a hot lavender oil massage on your feet. Good evening! Remember that you can also visit us and find a selection of products in one of our physical stores.
