Like the cycles observed in nature, there is also a cycle in our body. We have already discussed the three doshas in more detail here. The effects of these forces divide our day into different parts. If we manage to follow this devision by creating a conscious routine and do our daily activities and yoga exercises at the right time, then our lives will be more harmonious and healthier. So let’s see what an ideal daily routine, from which any conscious lifestyle can benefit from, looks like.


Morning Routine for Yogis

In the morning we are full of energy. The vata dosha is the most active in our body between 02:00 and 06:00. To use it’s mobile energy, it is worth getting up early. The most ideal time to wake up is 4-hours before sunrise. After getting up, the best thing we can do is take a refreshing shower and cleanse our bodies of toxins created during the night. Since the vata dosha dominates the elements of air and space, this period is best suited for pranayama, meditation, and spiritual exercises and mantras.


Recommendations for Mid-morning

The next period between 06:00 and 10:00 in the morning is dominated by the energy of the kapha dosha. Because the energy of kapha dosha is slow, solid and stabilizing, it is recommended to do more difficult work to make the best use of it. The first meal of our day, breakfast, should also be consumed during this period. The best time is around 8 am, when the food consumed can be utilized in the body best. The stabilizing energies of the kapha are replaced by the power of the pitta between 10 am and 2 pm, which still supports doing harder work. Reaching the highest position of the sun, the sky aligns with the fire element of the pitta dosha. Because this energy is responsible for digestion and nutrient progress in the body, the best time for lunch is between 12 and 1 p.m. Due to the supportive energy of the pitta dosha, lunch can be plentiful.


An Ideal Afternoon Routine for Yogis

The afternoon period of a conscious daily routine is between 2 pm and 6 pm. These hours are under the influence of the energy of the vata dosha. In the early afternoon you can do light, intellectual work. For the second half of the afternoon, it is recommended to include daily physical exercise. It may be ideal to practice the relaxation associated with yoga during this period to get rid of the tension that has accumulated during the day. It is also ideal to do a daily cleansing routine after the exercise, as it is not recommended just before going to bed due to the refreshing and invigorating effect of showering.

Relax in the Evening

From 6 pm, the kapha dosha dominates the body again. Now it is recommended to spend some quiet time. Spend time with your family or pets, read a good book or engage in spiritual exercises. It is recommended to eat dinner around 6 pm, and be sure to go to bed by 10 pm in the evening. The deep sleep phase takes place between 10 pm and 2 am. This is when the detoxification and cellular metabolic processes take place in the body, which are essential for maintaining our health.
