Yes, it is important to exercise regularly. Traditional Ayurveda states that is more important to exercise regularly than to exercise too vigorously or strenuously. 15 minutes daily is better than a long, overly zealous routine 3 times per week. According to Ayurveda, it is important not to “Over Do.” Work out “better” not “harder.” Exercise routines can quickly go from being beneficial for your health to being detrimental and even dangerous for your health and wellbeing.
You can increase your health immensely simply by walking a few minutes every day. Do not overstrain your body, breathe too heavily or sweat too much when exercising... stay at around 50% of your capacity for a good, healthy work out. Remember to stretch, and to enjoy a short relaxation period between exercises to regenerate your system. In the morning, between 6 and 10 am, is the most beneficial time to exercise according to Ayurvedic wisdom.
Add daily meditation and yoga asanas to your routine. These two practices are paramount to overall wellness and as Ayurvedic wisdom states, can guard against lowered immunity, stress, weight gain, and promote a supple, flexible body.
