General tips for positive health from Ayurveda

Sound health is the basis for happiness. And the following are the useful hints of Ayurveda for attainment of perfect health and good conduct. The following tips assure you good health, the fountain of happiness. 

* Generally, food should be taken only after the previous meal is digested, and in limited quantities.

* The bodily urges such as urination, defecation, sneezes, cough; belching, flatulence, etc. should never be controlled or forced out.

* While conversing, use words which are relevant, brief, true and agreeable. Don’t trust people too much but keep an open mind.

* Don’t over-strain your sense organs and don’t over indulge either.

* Wear clean, well fitting clothes to appear well-groomed without causing the impression of being flamboyant.

* Wearing gems and ornaments adds to prosperity, auspiciousness, longevity and grace.

* However avoid extremes in all cases. Choose the middle path for best results.

* Don’t cough or sneeze without covering your mouth.

* Don’t fidget with objects to avoid creating a nervous impression.

* Do not gaze at the sun for long periods. Also do not carry very heavy objects on your head and do not strain the eyes by looking at very small shining objects.

* Avoid direct onslaught of winds, sunlight, dust snow etc.

* Don’t sneeze, cough, eat, belch or sleep in awkward postures.

These dos and don’ts are quite relevant in today’s lifestyle too, and help maintain the body’s positive health and immunity.
