Aahaar, diet: Yog texts recommend a simple sattvic diet consisting of vegetarian food consumed in moderate quantity, chewed well at regular meal times, in a calm state of mind. If the stomach is roughly divided into 4 sections, during mealtimes, two sections of the stomach should be filled with food; one section with liquids other than water such as buttermilk and soup; and the remaining section must be left empty.
Vihaar, rest and recreation: Rest involves good sleep and cultivating conscious habits of relaxing your body and mind when stressed or tired. Recreation means involving yourself in creative hobbies, taking nature walks, connecting with family, socialising with positive-minded people and reading books that inform and enlighten.
Aachaar, conduct: Following the right healthy routine with discipline could solve many difficulties in our lives. Having your meals on time, asanas, walks, pranayama, kriyas, sunbathing, relaxation, sleeping at a fixed time and maintaining a gratitude journal – give a structure to your day.
Vichaar, thoughts: Try to substitute every negative thought with a positive one, write 10 positive points daily, and accept that everything is impermanent and will change.
