Celebrations are meant to spread happiness. Valentine’s Day should be celebrated to spread love and affection. However nowadays feelings are not important but the way you celebrate them becomes more valuable. Consumption of deep fried, confectioneries, desserts, non-veg food are calorie dense, heavy to digest and lack nourishment may cause some impact on your metabolism the next day.
Major consequence posts any happy celebrations is slowing down of the metabolism reflecting into indigestion, bloating, hyperacidity and abdominal pain the next day.
According to Ayurveda, lack of sleep, late night heavy food (guru aahar) consumption leads to aggravation of Vata, and it affects the normal function of Pitta. Vitiation of pitta increases toxins (Samata) in the body. This may lead to weight gain. Aggravated Vata may lead to elevated anxiety levels, nervousness and feeling of depression.
To overcome this situation, one needs to calm and detoxify not only the body but also the mind.
To detoxify the body, one should prefer easily digestible food (laghu aahar), along with some soothing and warm beverages and some relaxation activities. This will not only soothe your senses but also help you rekindle the beautiful moments you shared with your loved ones the previous day.
