In Ayurveda a day routine is regarded as one of the main remedies to maintain or get back into true health. The routine includes fixed times for eating, sleeping and working, sports, Yoga and Meditation. All activities must be aligned with our biorhythm. This rhythm is determined by the functions of our organs and tissues. For example, the liver is cleaning our blood between 10 pm- 3 am.
Most hormones are released in early morning and our digestion is on peak between 11 am-3 pm and for sure sleeps after eight. The daily routine in Ayurveda: living in perfect harmony with your biorhythm is a very individual matter. Besides the constitution also your state of health matters. If you are exhausted, you need more sleep and if you are obese move more and sleep less.

Some measures may be important, like enough sleep and regular eating. Your circumstances in which your are living like long working hours or intense care of small children will be considered in the plan. A daily routine in Ayurveda: living in perfect harmony with your biorhythm is the key to maintain or regain your health and strenght.
This is real Ayurveda: a dailymorning ritual with Meditation, Yoga, Ayurvedic massages, tongue cleaning and mouthwash. We celebrate the mornings and take our time to welcome the day in a relaxed manner, sort our thoughts and clean the body properly.
