Tibetans live a peaceful, withdrawn and monotonous life. Yet their lives are filled with daily rituals. Tibetans have a saying “be better to yourself than to others” which they respect and adhere to.
The daily tasks of Tibetans are:
06.00-07.00-Eliminate Cortisol (Stress Hormone). The day begins. Be cheerful and full of energy. People who sleep longer feel tired during the day. If you can wake up early, make a warm salty bath the night before, and drink a cup of warm milk with turmeric. Before bed, massage your wrists (especially your feet) with warm vegetable oils.
07.00-08.00-breakfast time. Use light and warm dishes: buckwheat, cooked and warm vegetables, tofu cheese, toasted eggs, strong spices. 15 to 20 minutes before eating, drink two glasses of warm lemon water. Do not use cold breakfast foods and mucus-forming foods in the body (raw fruits, raw vegetables, juices, milk, cashews, meat). A proper breakfast helps to overcome drowsiness, weight and stomach ache, and bloating.
10.00-15.00 – time for energy and work, expression of perception and sharpening of mind. This is the best period for physical and mental work.
12.00-13.00 – culmination of “digestive fire”. Best time for a hearty lunch.
For lunch, use legumes, vegetables and healthy fats, all animal protein, fiber, complex carbohydrates and oils. Red meat is best cooked at lunch. Do not use light foods that do not provide enough energy, fast food, alcohol, and harsh flavors.
For snacks, use hot drinks and nutritious, oily foods, dairy products, avocados, nuts and fruits. Eat soup or broth.
7pm to 8pm -dinner time
For dinner, use grilled vegetables, light protein, fish, seafood, poultry meat, tofu cheese, spices and oils. Do not eat more than necessary. Do not eat heavy and cold foods. Do not eat foods rich in carbohydrates.
If you sweat while sleeping, try to become a vegetarian. Use plants with bitter substances (Seedlings, Lat. Aegopodium podagraria; Use Dandelion and Clover leaves, Lat. Trifolium).
Do not consume alcohol. Do not consume foods with a sharp, sour or salty taste.
