Here are 7 things to adopt for your bed time-
1) Plan for next day: Preparing in advance always gives you more time and leaves you stress free. Things like looking for keys, deciding what to wear etc make you late and add to your morning stress. Prepare also for breakfast or what to cook the next day. Planning at night doesnt take much time and makes your next day start on a good note.
2) Shut out the buzz: Most of us say goodnight to family and head to bed only to spend the next hour checking Facebook and social media. Or you end up watching a funny video or movie late into the night. If you keep yourself distracted, you can't go off to sleep early or get quality sleep. The light from your gadget's screen can be harmful and stress inducing. It is best to give yourself an hour away from your mobile phone or other gadgets before you sleep.
3) Write a 'Thank-You' Diary: There are many ways to become a more positive person and the best is to have appreciation. Try finding out that 1 thing (more is better) that you are thankful for. Do it everyday. This practice right ahead of your sleep time calms you down, makes you feel happy, satisfied and goes on a long way in contributing to a heathy lifestyle.
4) Stretch it out: Like most people do you also have a job where you keep sitting for long hours? Stretching really works, it helps lengthen tendons and muscles and can reduce the frequency and severity of cramps ensuring you get a better night's sleep.
5) Try meditating: Our work life has become ever so demanding, we are constantly bombarded with information via the television, social media, the internet, friends and work which results in stress and anxiety! Few minutes of meditation before bed, slows down your brain activity which results in a deeper and more peaceful sleep. You will wake up feeling well-rested, energized and ready to take on the day!
6) Book by your side: Reading before bed is has amazing benefits. Firstly, it calms the nerves by eliminating excess sound and vision stimulus (exactly the opposite of what you get from watching television!). It helps you to wind down and sleep better, it also improves brain function, your memory and the thinking process overall.
7) Sleep is crucial: Foremost is to simply make sleep a priority. It is not as simple as it sounds. Sleep deficiency directly relates to increased stress, weight gain and productivity loss. Going to bed late and managing with 5 or 6 hours sleep sets a bad tone for your day.
Your happiness and general wellbeing is controlled by how relaxing you make your bed time.

PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) can throw life in jeopardy. A disorder of the endocrine system, PCOS is characterized by the formation of a cyst or multiple cysts in the ovary of a woman of reproductive age. More than often, PCOS affects the ovulation process giving rise to many complications including infertility and menstrual problems. In women with PCOS, the level of the hormone androgen is found to be quite elevated. While conventional treatments and surgical options are available, people are gradually switching over to Ayurvedic treatment. With a holistic approach amalgamated with a healthy diet and beneficial modifications and lifestyle changes, Ayurveda has been instrumental in treating the condition of PCOS with elan. In this article, we will discuss the Ayurvedic approach to deal with PCOD and the associated symptoms.
To enjoy a sound and disease free health, a proper balance and equilibrium between the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) are essential. A disruption of the dosha balance can, in turn, trigger contamination and impairment of the any of the seven Dhatus or tissues (Rasa Dhatu, Rakta Dhatu, Mamsa Dhatu, Meda Dhatu, Asthi Dhatu, Majja Dhatu, Shukra Dhatu) leading to a built-up of internal toxins (Ama).
In PCOS, there is vitiation of the Kapha Dosha that goes on to block the Vata and Pitta Doshas. The vitiation affects the Rakta and Rasa Dhatu which triggers the Ama to build up in the Manovahi Strotas (mind channels). This acts as a catalyst resulting in a hormonal imbalance with the symptoms and complications characteristic of PCOS.
Ayurvedic Treatment for PCOS
Once the trigger for PCOS has been diagnosed, the next step involves cleansing (detoxifying) the body of the harmful Ama through
- The use of medicated oil baths and oil massages (Oleation) and Fomentation (the body is made to sweat excessively).
- A Therapy known as Panchakarma is often used to carry out the necessary detoxification.
- Oleation and Fomentation, extensively used in Panchakarma go a long way to soften as well as liquify the toxins which remain attached to the body tissues. The softened and liquefied toxins are then easily eliminated and flushed out using different Panchakarma steps (Vamana, Nasya, Basti, Virechana, and Raktamokshana).
- There is also a dietary modification. In most of the times, a woman with PCOS is recommended a light and vegetarian diet, avoiding saturated and trans fats (Bad fats such as Margarine, cookies, pastries).
- Processed and refined foods, desserts, candies, red meat, dairy products (high fats) aerated drinks, and beverages, white bread, are best left avoided.
- Include foods such as onion, cauliflower, grapefruit, peaches, apples, oats, (low glycemic index).
- Choose complex carbohydrates (lentils, beans, oatmeal, whole grain bread, green leafy vegetables) over simple ones.
- Drink more fluids (water, fresh fruit juice, soup).
- Exercise and meditation is a must. However, do not overstress yourself.
- Keep stress (physical, mental, emotional) at bay.
- Methi seeds and flax seeds can work wonders for PCOS. You can soak the methi seeds in water (overnight) and drink the water the next day.
