Ayurvedic Clock

The Ayurvedic clock is a description of the ayurvedic times of the day that are best to eat, work, sleep and exercise. 

Each of the doshas has their own timeframe. 

Vata: 2am/pm-6am/pm

  • It is said that this best time of day to wake and begin a morning routine. 
  • The day is still calm, which supports vata, and the mind is clearer than other times of the day.
  • This is a great time for meditation ans/or study.
  • It is best to have a light breakfast

Pitta: 10am/pm-2am/pm

  • Digestive fire is the strongest.
  • Best time to have your largest meal of the day.
  • After 10:00pm, is when we get a "second wind". 
  • Best to wind down and/or go to bed before this time.

Kapha: 6am/pm-10am/pm

  • This is when the energy is the most steady.
  • Its great to get up early and start the day.
