Prana is the life force and universal energy that regulates breathing, blood circulation and oxygenation on a subtle energy level. In fact, Prana governs all movement and sensory functions in the body. Prana has several centers in the body, including the brain area, the heart, and the blood. Therefore, when the vital force is imbalanced, the areas corresponding to it in the body are the first to react, which is expressed in painful symptoms. Prana flowing freely through the body is essential for physical health and quality of life. When our channels become clogged or narrowed (due to poor nutrition, allergens, stress, etc.), Prana stops moving in this channel, stagnation occurs. This is one of the main causes of disorders and diseases. Consider how to restore and maintain the free flow of vitality in the body. 1. Freshly prepared, whole food According to Ayurveda, Prana is found in healthy, whole, fresh foods, which are recommended to be consumed immediately after preparation. In contrast, food that has been refined or cooked a few days ago is considered “dead” and does not carry life force. In addition, such food weakens the power of the digestive fire, clogs the channels, and promotes the formation of toxins. 2. Complete rest Without proper sleep and rest, we are not able to work to our full potential and be productive. Sleep stimulates homeostasis, not only the number of hours of sleep is important, but also the time at which you sleep (the best quality sleep occurs between 10 pm and 2 am). Therefore, the general recommendation for sleep is from 10 pm to 6 am. Maintaining healthy, regular sleep is essential for Prana. 3. Living (and letting go) thoughts, feelings and emotions One of the reasons for the violation of the flow of Prana is clogged emotions and thoughts, as well as incorrect perception. It is believed that unrealized, unlived emotions accumulate in our connective tissues, which crystallize, eventually leading to blocks and blockages. Effective ways of processing and letting go include meditation, talking to a loved one, drawing and other forms of art therapy, music, quiet walks, and dancing. 4. Walk in nature The abundance of greenery, fresh air – this is what our life force loves and needs. A weekly walk in nature has a positive, balancing effect on Prana. The early morning hours are distinguished by the special freshness of the air, recommended for walking. 5. Regular physical activity And although many people associate movement with weight loss, it has much greater benefits for the body’s most important systems. Exercise is a powerful tool in raising Prana as it stimulates digestion, circulation and detoxification. Physical activity is also a great tool in dealing with stress. And here it is not necessary to run a marathon or disappear in the gym every day for 2 hours. The best exercise is a daily 30 minute walk. It can also be swimming, cycling. Ideally, a person should spend 20-30 minutes a day in intentional movement to balance the body, mind and Prana. 6. Herbal drinks Many herbs have a vitality stimulating effect. However, the plant required for this will differ from person to person. For example, ginger, cinnamon, and guggul are good for increasing circulation and clearing blocks. Bala, Ashwagandha and Shatavari will be useful for general energy, nutrition and rejuvenation. As a rule, mixed herbal infusions are effective in most cases.
