Do you have a favourite time of the day? When do you feel most vibrant and
alive?

In Ayurveda there is a clock for energy. There is an optimal time of day for
different activities.

When we look at the world through the lens of Ayurveda everything is made up of
the elements earth, water, fire, air and ether. ⁣

The 5 elements are condensed into 3 Doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha. ⁣

Vata = Ether + Air⁣
Pitta = Fire + Water⁣
Kapha = Earth + Water⁣
At different times of the day, these different elements are present which creates
certain energies. They are:

Vata – the subtle wind energy is active between 2-6am/pm
Kapha – nourishing water energy is active from 6-10am/pm
Pitta – transforming fire energy is active from 10-2am/pm

What does this mean?
When we match our activities to make the most of energies naturally present we
have a routine for feeling vibrant and alive. This is what it’s like to be in sync, to
go with the flow, to be in rhythm with Mother Nature. This is common sense,
which is not that common!

An example of an Ayurvedic daily routine would look like:

6am/sunrise – 10am
This is when KAPHA energy is present, there is heaviness in the air, you may
notice dew on the grass, sluggishness if you stay in bed too late. The best
activities for this time are:
o     Wake up, hydrate, eliminate
o     Drink warm water and lemon
o     Move your body for at least 20min
o     Meditate

10am – 2pm
This is PITTA time, it’s when the sun is at it’s hottest, it’s also when our digestion
is the strongest.
o     Eat the largest meal of the day
o     This is a good time for strategy work

2pm – 6pm/sunset
This is VATA time, a time […]
