According to Ayurveda, with the help of a simple routine, you can clean up your body and mind, improve your immunity and balance your doshas to start your day on a rejuvenating note. Learn from Ayurveda Expert Dr R. Bhagwati, New Age Ayurveda the right way to wake up from your bed.

According to Ayurveda, you should wake up before sunrise so that your body can synchronise with the rhythm of the sun. This is the time where the environment is pure and calm, and the mind is fresh after sleep. Getting up in the wee hours of the day is instrumental as it sets the tone for the rest of the day. These tips will help you wake up early and become a morning person.

Step 1: When you want to wake up, first roll to your right and then get up and sit. When you are sleeping, your body is at rest, and you are at a lower level of metabolic activity. And if you suddenly roll to your left to wake up, you are likely to put a lot of pressure to your cardiac system.
