How Ayurveda Can Help You Achieve Mental Health and Well-Being

Mental health is a vital aspect of our overall health and well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act in our daily lives. It also influences our ability to cope with stress, overcome challenges, build relationships, and achieve our goals.

However, many factors can disturb our mental health and cause us to experience various problems such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, anger, etc. These problems can have a negative impact on our physical health as well as our personal and professional lives.

Fortunately, Ayurveda, the ancient system of holistic medicine from India, offers us a natural and effective way to improve our mental health and well-being. Ayurveda considers both physical and mental health as important because they are interdependent and mutually affect each other. If the balance of one of them is disturbed, then the whole health can be affected.

The Three Qualities of the Mind in Ayurveda

According to Ayurveda, the mind has three qualities or gunas: sattva, rajas, and tamas. These gunas determine the state of our mind and influence our thoughts, emotions, and actions.

Sattva is the quality of purity, clarity, harmony, wisdom, and peace. It is the ideal state of mind that we should strive for. A sattvic mind is calm, alert, focused, positive, compassionate, and creative.
Rajas is the quality of activity, movement, passion, ambition, and stimulation. It is the driving force of the mind that motivates us to achieve our goals. A rajasic mind is energetic, dynamic, enthusiastic, competitive, and adventurous.
Tamas is the quality of inertia, dullness, ignorance, laziness, and attachment. It is the limiting force of the mind that hinders our growth and development. A tamasic mind is dull, sluggish, confused, negative, selfish, and stubborn.

All three qualities are present in everyone’s mind to some extent. However, the proportion of each quality varies from person to person and from time to time depending on various factors such as diet, lifestyle, environment, etc.

The balance of these qualities is essential for maintaining a healthy and happy mind. However, often external causes such as anger, greed, envy, sorrow etc. Disturb the balance of these qualities and reduce our mental stability. Our sensory perception and daily actions depend on the stability of the mind. Therefore, mental health is important in Ayurveda.
