In terms of one's self...
Key is Calmness
“The key for women’s health to stay in balance is to take care of Vata dosha,” Sankari says. “When Vata dosha goes out of balance, it can manifest as worry, stress and tension. And because it is fast-moving by nature, it goes out of balance easily and then leads the other doshas. So Vata dosha is the key to staying calm and healthy.”
Vata dosha, which is the mind-body operator that governs movement in the body, is quick, rough, dry, and irregular by nature.
“To balance Vata, it’s important to maintain a regular daily routine, starting with a consistent, early bedtime and waking time,” Sankari says. “Regular exercise, regular sleep, regular meditation, daily yoga, daily Ayurvedic oil massage (abhyanga), regular mealtimes — all of these things help keep Vata dosha in balance.”
The importance of good sleep and daily meditation cannot be overestimated in women’s health.
“There is a tendency for women to do so much for others, to get tired, so you need to make sure you schedule time to rest and rejuvenate with your daily meditation,” Sankari says. “Even though time is tight, you can juggle your schedule to make time. Alternate with your spouse, or meditate before the children come home. Just having that focus, the rest you gain in meditation goes a long way.”
People say...live life this way to live fully...but sometimes our souls say, that sounds good in theory but that isn't really what you want or need at this time. And you know, when I think more deeply, I'm out and about every day. I'm writing this at 6 am and I've already been outside twice. I have a lot of people in my life I interact with daily.
