Tips on How to Drink Water (According to Ayurveda)

Without a Doubt, Water is the most important source of fluid for our body. But in this modern society, many people are always in a rush and lead a busy lifestyle which has a big and often negative impact on their health. People often drink beverages that are loaded with chemicals such as colors and preservatives, a lot of sugar, and processed through pasteurization. But not only the choice of the beverage itself has a big impact on our well-being, but also the way we consume it makes a difference in the long run. Drinking loads while standing, walking, driving, or while having a meal – all those are habits that eventually lead to imbalances in our system. Also, regarding drinking water in class, starting a good routine of hydrating before and after class is a great way to get the most out of your practice, and leave feeling energized and focused.

“Eat your water and drink your food – is a quote which brings it all to the point”, says Greece Ji Pratham Yoga’s Anatomy teacher. “Our food must be chewed so well that we can easily swallow it, just like water. Our beverages should be consumed slowly, sip by sip.”
