Being healthy and vibrant is our natural state. However, staying balanced, as you may already have experienced, isn't always straightforward and it's not the same for everyone. There are many different components that come into play. Ayurveda, as a science, defines the many internal and external influences that are beneficial or detrimental to our bodies and minds.
Develop a mantra and use it as a tool to restore and maintain balance in your life. Mantras are powerful in balancing the Doshas, in particular calming excess Vata and excess Pitta. If you experience extreme emotions, such as anxiety, depression and rage, a mantra could be a powerful healing tool.
