Breathing exercises (5 minutes a day)
Meditating (5 to 10 minutes a day)
Drinking plenty of water
Eating a healthy, whole-food diet customized for you (based on your dosha)
Exercising (30 minutes a day)
Minimizing stress (by looking forward to going to work)
Being able to quickly rebalance if things get off-kilter
Ayurveda for Lifealso includes a thorough overview of Ayurveda, a What Dosha Are You? test, and more advanced Ayurvedic practices, along with the easy-to-follow daily step-by-step guidance, all conveyed through Monica's approachable, practical, and entertaining instruction.
