Ayurveda and Yoga Tips for Better Digestion

Food is what gives us energy and good mood. But if it leaves us suffering from bloating or indigestion it means we are not eating the right food or not having our meals the right way. Our Ayurveda tips and yoga asanas will help you fine tune your digestion and feel light and comfortable throughout the day.

Start your morning with a glass of water

Drink a glass of warm water first thing in the morning, it will launch the digestive system at the beginning of your day.

Eat freshly cooked food

Stick to a routine

Eating at the same time each day is a good idea.

Don’t eat when you are full

Sometimes after hard days at work, many of us indulge ourselves to loads of tasty foods. Tasting different foods is often uplifting, however, you shouldn’t start your new meal when your previous meal hasn’t been properly digested.

Take your time

Be careful with gas producing foods
