Emotions that Block


Sleep is a natural phenomenon of giving adequate rest to the body and mind. Insomnia is the inability to fall asleep at night for many hours or the inability to sleep soundly, which deprives one of natural rest and interferes with activities during the day.

Insomnia has two stages, acute insomnia and chronic insomnia. Ayurveda considers three essential pillars to maintain physical and mental health and they are Ahara (food), Nidra (sleep) and Brahmacharya (controlled sex). All of these should be enjoyed in moderation to maintain good health. Classic Ayurvedic documents provide details on ideal amounts of food, sleep, and controlled sex.
