People who wake up early also manage to go to bed early. Due to this, they get a better quality of sleep. As a result, early risers are more productive, positive, happy, and have less chance of lifestyle diseases like obesity, PCOS, diabetes, etc.
“ब्राह्मे मुहूर्त उत्तिष्ठते स्वस्थो रक्षार्थम आयुष:|”
As per Ayurveda, “to secure a healthy life, one should wake up early in the Brahmamuhurta.”
Brahma means the “Lord of Creation.” Muhurta means “time“. Together it means the Time of Brahma (Lord of creation).
According to Ayurveda, Brahma muhurta is approximately one hour thirty-six minutes before sunrise. For example, if the sunrise is around 5 am, Brahmamuhurta will begin at 3:24 am; if the sun rises at 7 am, Brahmamuhurta begins at 5:24 am.
Why is it essential to wake up early?
During Brahmamuhurta, the environment is peaceful, and it has the appropriate amount of oxygen levels. Therefore, for better health, Ayurveda suggests practicing meditation, yoga, and other health-enhancing regimens (dinacharya)during Brahmamuhurta hours.
Practicing dinacharya (day rituals) in your routine not only improves your mental & physical health but also sets a good tone for your day.
To attain physical health, it is essential to keep your mental health at its best. So, waking up early & spending time with yourself by doing yoga, meditation, or walking can help you attain good mental & physical health.
