April is the month where we all had so many unexpected twists and turns. Most of the planned summer vacations turned out to be “indoor-family-time”. The fun meetings at the office became boring zoom calls.
Although on the brighter side, home cooking was trending on social media. Be it Dalgona coffee or just an ordinary omelette, all of you enjoyed cooking by yourself at home. Swiggy, Zomato or the street food were all gone, and us humans became so health-conscious.
At LiveRight, this month of April, we had so many questions, doubts and inquiries pouring into our Ayurveda online consultation portal about “immunity”. Even we had two webinars on “Immunity management during lockdown” and “Immunity routines during lockdown”.
Well, immunity is a legacy. It is an empire you built for a long time. Every time you fall, you get up and each time you get up, you learn to not give up, and the goal of this process is, you have become immune to the fear of falling or to the falling itself. In Ayurveda, immunity is like this process. Your body learns to build its own immune power. The food, physical activity, mental strength and sleep routines you follow boost your body’s natural immunity.
There are plenty of immunity based blog posts around the internet. But during the COVID-19 lockdown, few kick-ass Ayurveda experts who agreed to the concept of immunity needed to be a daily activity. If you are looking for a suitable read, implementing methods and thorough understanding, here are few picks by us.
