On Edge?

No one likes to feel anxious not even worrywarts.

Although a tinge of anxiety can spark productivity,
too much can be hazardous to your health.
According to ayurvedic expert Vasant Lad, anxiety is primarily due to an aggravation of the vata dosha.
So to heal anxiety, we have to balance
Certain lifestyle factors aggravate this flighty
dosha: late hours, erratic schedules, cold and windy environments, overwork, and
improper diet.
If you often feel anxious, consider these
vata-pacifying lifestyle changes.
Stick to a strict routine by eating, sleeping,
working, and exercising at the same time every day.
(Slow, methodical exercise
such as walking or swimming will soothe your nervousness.)
And give yourself a daily oil massage to further
ground vata.
You can also choose from the following home remedies
to help calm your anxiety.
A Relaxing Bath
Lad recommends the following anxiety-reduction bath:
pour one-third cup of ginger and one-third cup of baking soda into a warm tub of
water and soak for 10 to 15 minutes.
Almond Milk
Dr. Lad also suggests soaking 10 raw almonds in
water overnight. In the morning, peel off the skins. Blend the almonds with a
cup of warm milk, a pinch of ginger, and a small pinch of nutmeg and saffron.
Enjoy.
A Calming Diet
According to ayurveda, the food you eat can either
balance your doshas or knock them out of whack.
To pacify a vata imbalance, choose warm, moist,
slightly oily, grounding foods. Soups,
casseroles, hot cereals, creamy dishes, dairy products, bread, and pasta are
great choices. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, sugar, and nicotine, since
they're overstimulating, and snack on fresh fruit instead. You can also
incorporate vata-pacifying ingredients like anise, asafetida, cinnamon, cumin,
ginger, gotu kola, licorice, natural sugar, nutmeg, rock salt, and sesame seeds
into your diet.
Aromatherapy
Certain fragrances have a calming effect on vata.
Put three drops of frankincense, basil, orange, or clove essential oil into an
aromatherapy diffuser or a hot bath and relax.
Alternate Nostril
Breathing
Nadi shodhanam, also known as alternate nostril
breathing, is a simple practice that involves deliberately and rhythmically
changing the flow of air from one nostril to another, according to a specific
formula.
This pranayama soothes the nervous system, relieves
anxiety, and calms, balances, and regulates energy on both the physical and
subtle levels. Here's an easy version:
Step 1 * Sit comfortably with your head, neck, and
spine in alignment. Breathe slowly, evenly, and diaphragmatically through both
nostrils for 3 to 5 minutes. As you're about to begin your next exhalation, go
to Step 2.
Step 2 * Close your right nostril with your right
thumb, and exhale fully and slowly through the left nostril.
Step 3 * Without pausing, inhale normally through
the left nostril, close the left nostril with the ring finger of the right hand,
and exhale through the right nostril.
Step 4 * Naturally inhale through the right
nostril.
Step 5 * Repeat steps 2-4 for five more minutes,
switching nostrils after each inhalation. Avoid pausing between inhalations and
exhalations, and keep your breathing steady and continuous.
