1. Embrace a Calm Awakening with Soothing Alarm Tones:

he way we wake up sets the tone for the rest of our day. Rather than using a harsh alarm tone that makes us rush towards the snooze button that increases our heart rate and gives a jerk to the body.

Replacing them with soothing, melodic enchanting music especially Mantras like “OM”, we can ease into wakefulness gently and provide positivity.

This practice can reduce stress and cortisol levels, leading to improved mood, lower blood pressure, and enhanced mental well-being.

2. Start the Day on the Right Side:

According to ancient Indian practices, beginning the day by getting out of bed on the right side has numerous benefits.

As we wake up, the rush of blood flowing towards our hearts is vital for efficient circulation.

By consciously choosing to rise from the right side, we ensure a balanced flow of energy throughout our bodies. Let us follow this with the baby pose, rubbing our palms together to generate warmth, and applying it to our eyes and bodies.

This simple act cultivates gratitude for being alive, reminding us of the blessings bestowed upon us.

This practice improves blood circulation, enhances digestion, and provides a natural boost of energy, leading to increased vitality throughout the day.

3. Sun Gazing and Gratitude:

As soon as you wake up, open the window and gaze at the sun, focus on greenery, and see the limitless blue sky rather than focusing on gadgets.

Incorporating sun gazing into your morning routine can have profound effects on your physical and spiritual well-being.

Gently facing the rising sun while expressing gratitude for a new day allows us to absorb the sun’s energy and cultivate a sense of appreciation.

Sun gazing is known to stimulate the production of Vitamin D, regulate the circadian rhythm, boost immunity, promote a positive mindset, and set the right tone for a day with a grateful mindset.

Sun gazing is believed to improve eyesight as it stimulates the Pineal gland.

4. Oil Pulling and Brushing:

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic technique that involves swishing oil, such as coconut or sesame oil, in the mouth for a few minutes and then spitting it.

Cold-pressed Coconut oil is best in Summer and opt for Sesame oil in Winter.

Followed by brushing your teeth with a bamboo brush and not a plastic brush.

This practice helps remove toxins, improve oral health, and promote a clean and fresh feeling.

Oil pulling can reduce harmful bacteria in the mouth, prevent plaque formation, improve gum health, and contribute to overall oral hygiene.

Coconut is, considered sacred in Indian customs, and brings an aura of positivity when incorporated into our morning routine.

5. Hydration and Nourishment with Raw, Natural Foods:

As we wake, it is essential to hydrate our bodies with a glass of water.

In the soothing position of Malasana (squat), let us embrace the refreshing water, as it improves the colon position, allowing it to flush out toxins and kick-start our metabolism.

Adequate hydration supports healthy digestion, maintains optimal body temperature, aids in nutrient absorption, and promotes healthy skin.

Once we have cleared our colon and feel hunger pangs, let us nourish our bodies with a breakfast rich in raw, natural foods.

Fresh fruits, nuts and seeds can boost your energy levels, support your digestive system, and provide essential vitamins and minerals for overall well-being instead of directly jumping on tea /coffee.

Key Takeaways:

By incorporating these transformative morning habits, rooted in spiritual wisdom, into your daily routine, you can positively impact your physical and spiritual well-being.

Taking a holistic approach to your health, guided by the teachings of Gurbani, can create a foundation for a healthy life.

“Embrace a great morning, and let its positivity shape your day.”

Wishing you a splendid Day!
