Daily regimen / Dincharya in Ayurveda
Dinacharya are suggested as a daily routine to give a rhythm to a healthy life. A daily routine is essential to bring thorough change in body, mind and consciousness and is a simple way to energize and relax the mind and the body.
Wake up early in the morning
Wake up before the sun rises. There are peaceful sathva guna qualities in nature that bring peace of mind and awaken the senses with purity in the early morning.
Clean the face, mouth and eyes
Splash your face with cold water and rinse out your mouth. Sharpen and refine the senses to bring greater clarity to your perceptions.
Clean your teeth
Always use a soft toothbrush and toothpaste or powder that is astringent to strengthen the gums, pungent to stimulate the blood flow to the gums and bitter to kill bacteria.
To strengthen teeth, gums, and jaw, improve the voice and remove wrinkles from cheeks, gargle twice a day with warm sesame oil. Hold the oil in your mouth, swish it around vigorously, and then spit it out. Then gently massage the gums with a finger.
Bowel movements are a great self-diagnostic tool. It determines the quality of your digestion.
