Ayurveda believes that restful sleep forms one of the three pillars of Ayurvedic healing, with the other two being diet and a healthy lifestyle. As for balancing the erratic Vata and in order to harmonize your body and allow it to sleep better, try to bring about certain regularity in your lifestyle. Whether it is exercising, eating, sleeping, getting up, working etc., a healthy routine will allow our body to synchronize better with the environment and surrounding. All in all, try to minimize any kind of mental activity and slowly start preparing for sleep shortly after you have had your dinner. Try to decide a time table for yourself and stick to it. Basically, anything that stimulates the Vata should be avoided and anything that quietens the mind is welcome. Besides, there are some natural Ayurveda herbs that are believed to be helpful in healing an aggravated Vata dosha and thus prevent reduced sleep. These natural herbs include Brahmi, Tulsi, Ashwagandha, Vacha, Shankhapushpi and Jatamansi. Mainly the Vata dosha balancing herbs that nourish the Ojas or the vital energy are endorsed. A combination of herbs such as Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) Brahmi (Bacopa monneri), Jatamamsi (Nardostachys jatamansi) would be of good help. You can consume these in various forms throughout the day, as they give us ample energy to perform our daily activities rather efficiently, thus allowing a much longed-for sleep during the night.
