Pranayama is a very good way to keep us healthy and balanced.
Many of us due to our busy schedules overlook to care for ourselves. Thus, at night, we end up having more stress and more hence sleepless nights. The next day is equally stressful due to the carry over of previous day. Imagine the level of pain all of us are going through just because we are not able to spend a few min to help smooth out ourselves. Here is a very easy to do method for many of us who are lazy to wake up and exercise.
Body has 3 Major Nadis – Ida, Pingala and Sushumna
As long Ida and Pingala can be in balance, we can distress and be less egoistic when we encounter people at work or home. Also, if balanced, Sushumna will tend to raise our Kundalini energy. Well, effects of Raising kundalini are huge, beyond someone can imagine. So, let’s restrict our discussion to the technique to get this working.
Ida is cooling like the moon. It has to be active when the sun rises, to keep our body cool.
So, in the morning, before we wake up, lie down on our right side for 10 min and wake up with a small prayer to God for positive things to happen for that day. This will help activate our Ida Nadi, and hence we are ready to start our day.
Pingala is heat like the Sun. It has to be active when the sun sets, to keep our body warm.
So, in the evening, just after the sunsets, as the temperature comes down, we can lie on our left side for 10 min and wake up with a small prayer to heal our stress that we had gone through for that day and have a peaceful evening. This will help activate our pingala Nadi, and hence we are ready to keep ourself active even after a stressful day.
There are many other techniques to do this. But laying down on left side and right side will be the easiest for anyone to do.
