Ayurveda, Tips for Healthy living

These are some general health tips recommended by Ayurveda: 
Sleep on time: Wake up early, preferably before sunrise. A good night sleep can help to start a day with a fresh and clear mind.

Drink lots of water: Drinking water is advantageous in every way. It assists metabolism and digestion, prevents constipation and the accumulation of waste products (ama) in the body, keeps away diseases and even helps in keeping the skin clear of acne and pimples.
Wash your face often: Wash your face with water many times a day to remove dirt and grime, prevent the occurrence of pimples and acne and get a refreshed feeling. 
Take an oil massage: Massage your body with oil before bath which will rejuvenate you, reduce fatigue and prevent dry skin. Massaging the scalp with oil can prevent dandruff, graying and hair fall, enhance mental alertness and so on. 
Exercise regularly: There ish o doubt as to the benefits of a regular exercise routine. Practicing Yoga and meditation can make your body immune to diseases, give your mind the capability to concentrate and ward off stress, lose unnecessary fat, give the body flexibility and suppleness. 
Follow proper hygiene: Cleanliness is very important to preserve health. Bath twice a day, keep your hair and nails clean and wear only clean clothes. Wash your face, hands and legs after going out. 
Watch out for negative vibes: Try to keep your mind clear of negative thoughts and emotions such as anger, jealousy, depression, greed, hatred, sadness etc. Saying a prayer can help- in the morning, at dusk, before having your meals and before going to bed. Avoid speaking ill of others and always keep your mind at ease by engaging in things that you like and enjoy. 
Mind what you eat: Eat fresh and wholesome food and follow healthy eating habits. Food should be well cooked, preferably at home and should be had in a peaceful and calm environment. 
Maintain a healthy weight: According to Ayurveda, both obesity and emaciation (Under weight) are dangerous. So always follow a healthy diet, exercise regularly and maintain a weight as per your BMI.
For an undisturbed sleep: Drink a glass of warm milk before going to bed. This will help you sleep peacefully. Also isolate your mind from all stressful and worrisome thoughts before going to bed.
 Intake of curd at night can block the body channels which in turn can disrupt digestion.
