Why is health vital for happiness?

Health and happiness are intertwined. In fact, to stay happy means living a healthier life. Ayurveda considers one as healthy when body, mind, and consciousness are in a balanced state. The World Health Organization (WHO) uses a holistic view of health, a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely absence of disease or infirmity.

Health is the real wealth and the source of all happiness. Over time, people have started to realize that sickness results from unhealthy lifestyle habits because we have entirely disconnected from nature. The answer to our problems lies in nature. Good health comes to people who connect to nature and go by its flow. In Ayurveda, a daily regimen is called ‘Dinacharya.’ ‘Dinacharya’ aligns us with the natural rhythms of life each day that is necessary to maintain the balance of our body, mind, and consciousness.



Ayurveda is the oldest healthcare system in the world that originated in India several thousand years ago. It comes from the words ‘Ayu’, which means all aspects of life from birth to death and ‘Veda’. which means knowledge or science — thus, Ayurveda is the ‘Science of Life’ ! The aim of Ayurveda is to maintain the health of the healthy person and cure the diseases of sick people. Ayurveda asserts that science, philosophy, and spirituality are necessary aspects for well-being. Ayurveda is considered not only an ancient medical science but also a way of life that promotes health and happiness for everyone.

Maharishi Vagbhata:

When speaking of the leading proponents of Ayurveda in ancient times, there are three- Sushruta, Caraka, and Vagbhata. Maharishi Vagbhata is one of the most influential writers, scientists, and doctors of Ayurveda. Maharishi Vagbhata experienced Ayurveda and spread it among ordinary people so they could make use of this divine knowledge of life. He introduced one of the most important principles of Ayurveda and practices known as ‘Dinacharya (daily regimens) and Ritucharya (seasonal regimens)’ for good health and greater longevity. He gives more emphasis on the prevention of diseases than treating a disease. Ayurveda in its literature has given detailed rituals or practices of ‘dinacharya’ (daily regimens) that one should follow every day to establish the balance of Tridosha (Vata, pitta & Kapha) in the body, which helps regulate a person’s biological clock and prevents lifestyle-related disorders.

Ritucharya (seasonal regimens):

Rituacharya comprises two words, ‘Ritu,’ which means season, and ‘charya,’ which means regimen or discipline. Ritucharya aims to prevent diseases due to seasonal derangement of doshas. It consists of daily regimens and diet to live one’s life according to the flow of the seasons. Ritucharya is one of the ways to be in sync with ever-changing nature and be healthy all at the same time.

According to Ayurveda, the constitution or Dosha of the body and the seasons are intimately related. Our health is affected by the qualities of the climate we live in; our outer environment influences our inner world. Seasonal regimens will help you in achieving a balance of Doshas. Various environmental factors like temperature, humidity, wind, rain, clouds and atmospheric pressure, sunlight, etc., affect our health. Follow the seasonal regimens in achieving good benefits of the atmosphere and avoid associated diseases of the seasons.

Ayurveda Lifestyle:

Ayurveda’s lifestyle philosophy of ‘your health in your hands’ derives from the concept of Dinacharya (daily regimens) and Ritucharya (seasonal regimens). Dinacharya is considered central to health and happiness. Follow the Ayurveda lifestyle to manage your health rather than manage your illnesses. According to Ayurveda, are nothing more than imbalances created by an unhealthy diet and inappropriate daily routines. Ayurveda lifestyle helps you take charge of your health and deepens our understanding of the dinacharya such as doshas (body type), balanced diet, sleep, exercise, home remedies, yoga asanas, pranayama, and meditation to ensure ‘your health is in your hands.
