Maintaining a sound mind and body during lockdown with the help of Ayurveda

Do away with negativity and use this time for introspection, while keeping the mind calm and remaining positive.

The recent global progression of the COVID19 virus has brought about a melancholic air and an impending sense of negativity with it. With nations focusing on the economy and public health, new challenges keep arising and it seems quite easy to get carried away to a corner.

It is important to remember that this period of uncertainty has also brought with it an opportunity to refocus energies and rebuild ourselves with the help of numerous Ayurvedic practices.

Stress results in the secretion of adrenaline in the body and a long-lasting presence of this hormone aren’t too good for our health. A negative state of mind triggers the production of adrenaline, which leads to increased heart rate and overburdens senses like smell and sound.

Although heightened senses may sound like something to be positive about, research shows that the prolonged presence of adrenaline in the body can lead to an increase in blood sugar levels as well as cysts in the kidneys. It is therefore imperative to train the mind and body to relax and reduce the burden of the hormone on the body.

Yoga has been an inseparable part of the Ayurvedic culture for centuries. It helps compose the mind and body. Herbs like Ashwagandha, Sarpagandha and Jatamansi contain a wide range of active ingredients that enhance the body’s ability to manage stress and put the nervous system at ease.

At this point in time, with the sense of uncertainty looming over everyone, break the habit of searching for news, events and opinions that trigger confusion, anger and other forms of negativity. Connect with friends and family over a video call and surround yourself with good energies.
