Does Ayurveda Permit Sleeping In Day Time?

If we follow Ayurveda, then there is a bad new for day sleepers. Ayurveda doesn’t recommend sleeping during daytime as it causes imbalance between two doshas, i.e Kapha and pitta doshas. However, there is still a little good news for day “sleepaholics.”


If you are health and physically fit then you are welcome to take naps for sometime in the day, but with condition, only during summer.  The reason of taking naps during daytime only in summer is that in summers, we all know that days are extremely big as compared to nights. So, there are great chances of our body being exhausted due to work as well as hot and humid weather.

Who doesn’t like taking nap? The answer will be no one. However, when it comes to dozing off in afternoon, many people consider it a a bad habit. Lets check it out if it really is a bad habit according to Ayurveda.

So, What could be the reason behind this afternoon siesta? Is it the lack of sleep of last night making your go yawn or lots of work in the morning makes you tired and ultimately forcing you to take a sleep break? There are some reports that claim that it is good to take 30 minutes sleep after lunch as it improves your productivity for the 2nd part of your day.

Check – Pimples Causes

So lets break it out who can sleep in the afternoon and who are not allowed to sleep in the after noon as per Ayurveda.

Students – They are allowed to take nap to boost their brain energy as after continuous study one might get tired.

Old people – As we age, our body and mind need more rest. So they can sleep.

Short-tempered people, singers, laborers, people who are taking medicines or people with digestive problems take nap in between.

Avoid sleeping in the daytime if you fall in the following category.

  • Suffering from obesity
  • Diabetic people
  • People who consumes lots of oily and fast food. The reason that they are not suggested to sleep in the day is that if they take nap in the daytime, it will lead to several problems such obesity, memory and intellect effect, effect on immune system and many other factors. 

    So, the final conclusion is that there is not a ‘one rule for everyone’ kind thing in Ayurveda. First, analyse your health and then decide if sleeping in the day time is benefiting you or not. For many of us, sleeping in the day time is a bad habit, but for Ayurveda, the only things that mattes is if you are physically fit or not and what you are like a student, singer etc.

    So next time, when you get urge of sleeping in the day time, ask yourself if you fulfill the criteria of Ayurveda or not, then only proceed to sleep. However, taking few times nap in a month is not a bad thing.

    We hope, all your doubts related to daytime sleep are clear now. Tell us your views about this in the comment section. In the meantime, keep visiting our blog.

Baby Massage Dos and Dont’s

Baby Massage Basics – It is not only that adults find body rubbing food. Babies also find a gentle touch good and you should know that your baby is liking it if he is giggling. The reason of their giggles is that touch is one of the five senses which is most developed at the time of birth.

Massage with warm oil is good for the development of baby and enormous benefits of massages is essential for thriving the  growth of baby. Body massage for infants is must and should be on every mommy’s list.


Baby massage makes baby’s bones strong and it is good for their health.  Baby massage also has other benefits like it increases the bonding between mother and the baby.  According to science, massage done on daily basis and that routine touch plays vital role in baby’s growth.


  • Best Time To Massage – well to be honest, there is actually no best time for your baby. It all depends on his mood. But try to find that moment in whole day where your baby is happy and laughing.  Never massage him if he is Hungary as no body likes belly rubs during hunger. Also, don’t massage your baby just after feeding him, chances are that he will vomit the milk you just fed him.
  • Oils – Use coconut, avocado or olive oil to massage your body. Stay away from the so-called baby oils or mineral oil. They are known for clogging the pores of the skin of babies. Some oils like nix nut oil should also be avoided as some babies have allergy from them. While choosing massage oil, choose one that’s unscented, edible and either a vegetable oil or cold-pressed fruit.


  • Comfortable Point – use  warm — at least 75° F — so your baby doesn’t get hurt or scared every time you come to massage him. To prevent oil stains, you could lay some sheet or towel so that all your focus would be on massage and not on stains.
  • Follow your baby’s cues. Everybody hates it when someone touches you when you are not in mood to be touched. Same goes with babies. If he cries or resist your touch then don’t force and save the massage session for some other time.  If your baby starts feeling uncomfortable in the middle of the session, then also you should stop at that moment. Don’t carry on just for the sake of completing the session.

Be Gentle – Every mum is gentle with their child, but still sometimes mothers also make mistake. Rubbing from wrist to shoulder is quite stimulating and should be done when you baby is awake. Stimulation from shoulder to wrist should be done when your baby is about to go sleep that is pre-bedtime. These are some techniques of massaging your baby.


Make baby massage your daily routine and you will see the improvement in overall health of your baby. Play some background music or you can also sing a song to your baby to make the massage session more fun. Just remember, all the magic is in your gentle touch.
