The last 5 posts dealt with basics of Ayurvedic nutrition focusing on what/ what not to eat, when to eat, how to eat, how much to eat and what to do before food. While most of us might think that the story ends here, but we are yet another step away from helping the food we eat undergo proper digestion.
The 30 minutes span after one finishes their meal are very crucial. This is a period of rest which along with assisting digestion enables us to relish the food we have eaten. It mainly involves 3 activities:
- Sitting in vajrasana / with straight spine for 10 minutes
- Walking slowly for 10 minutes / 100 steps
- Lying down in left lateral position for 10 minutes
Although with no time to eat, doing these 3 simple activities after food might seem a non-achievable task especially during work hours. But if we put in a little thought, all workplaces have atleast 30 minutes – 1 hour meal break. Use this time judiciously and let the food you eat nourish your body, mind and soul!
