Brahma Mahurat and Surya Namaskar: A Way of Healthy Living




Early to bed early to rise to make a man healthy wealthy and wise, this is what our elders taught us from our childhood. They wanted us to be disciplined in life.

They knew that only a disciplined person can achieve whatever he wants in his life. For being successful discipline is a must.

Our ancestors were much disciplined in following the daily chores. As the title says Brahma mahurat so what is Brahma mahurat? Brahma means the "creator of the universe" and mahurat means "auspicious time".

Brahma mahurat is the time before sunrise starts from one and a half hour before and ends when the sunrises. You can say if the sun rises at 6 A.M the mahurat will be at 4:30 Am.
At this time our mind and body have taken the full rest. 

Waking up in Brahma mahurat connects the biological time of the body with the Sun. The people who wake up in Brahma Mahurat are less prone to diabetes, blood pressure, stress, allergies and obesity too.

Brahma mahurat is the right time to do the medita-tion and yoga, one reason is that at this time two times join together i.e. day and night, which has a psychological effect on your mind and one can use this time to develop his or her mind and body, also at this time sun rays are not that hot and you can get Vitamin D too.
Vitamin D helps you to keep your immune system strong which is the need of this hour.




Meditation brings the clarity in thinking which means you can focus more on your studies; your concentration level will be high; you can handle the tough situations in your life.

The most famous yoga at this time is “Surya Namaskar”also known as Salutation to Sun.

This yoga has 12 postures from the standing position to downwards than again back at standing position, so it must be done 12 times and must be performed facing east direction in the morning. The international yoga day is celebrated on 21st June.



The Twelve postures of Surya Namsakara are:

1.Pranamasana ( Prayer pose)

2.Hasta Uttanasana ( Raised arm pose)

3.Uttanasana ( Hand to Foot pose)

4.Anjaneyasana (Crescent Moon Pose)

5.Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-facing Dog Pose)

6.Ashtanga Namaskara (Ashtanga Dandavat Pranam)

7.Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward-Facing Dog Pose)

8.Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-facing Dog Pose)

9.Anjaneyasana, opposite foot, (Crescent Moon Pose)

10.Uttanasana (Hand to Foot pose)

11Hasta Uttanasana (Raised arms pose)

1\12.Pranamasana (Prayer pose) back to 1

This yoga circulates the blood in the body, which helps in increasing the oxygen level in the body, benefits your lungs normalize the blood pressure, gives you glowing skin, treats insomnia, helps in losing weight, clear your vision and the most important it ensures in regular the menstruation cycle.


So include yoga in your daily routine. What I think that if we include yoga in our routine it will benefit to make our immune system strong to fight against any diseases.

The human body is not a machine it can't work day and night, this body is our temple we must take care of it so that it functions properly.

I write about self-care I believe that beauty doesn't come from external factors only you must feel inner peace, happiness within, the positivity in any evil situation.

So keep smiling, be thankful to life.
As I say Love, Live, Laugh.
