Ayurveda, the Science of Life is the oldest and the most natural method used to cure illness. This science is being used globally as it has shown tremendous results. Initially, people started this practice by using beneficial herbs and roots with the motive of a healthy lifestyle. However, experts revealed the infinite benefits of using Ayurveda in daily life.

For a balanced lifestyle, both physical and mental health is equally important. Disturbance in any of them can lead to major problems in real life. Busy city life and a sedentary lifestyle have forced people to adopt artificial practices, due to which Ayurveda has taken a back seat.

Take adequate sleep

According to Ayurveda, sleep is one of the supporting pillars of life.
