- Breathing exercises (5 minutes a day)
- Meditating (5 to 10 minutes a day)
- Drinking plenty of water
- Eating a healthy, whole-food diet customized for you (based on your dosha)
- Exercising (30 minutes a day)

- Gaining clarity
- Being able to quickly rebalance if things get off-kilter
Live Your Best Life Ayurveda also includes a thorough overview of Ayurveda, a What Dosha Are You? test, and more advanced Ayurvedic practices, along with the easy-to-follow daily step-by-step guidance, all conveyed through Monica's approachable, practical, and entertaining instruction.
