Where do the 10 habits come from? What is Ayurveda?

Here is a definition from WebMD:

"Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India.

It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit." (https://www.webmd.com/balance/guide/ayurvedic-treatments#1)


In Sanskrit, Ayur means life and Veda means science or knowledge. So Ayurveda is the science of living. Over 3 to 5 millennia, practitioners in India have perfected this system to help people live better lives. After 12 years working as an Ayurvedic practitioner, Cate Stillman delineated the 10 habits, which are the core of a healthy daily routine, or dinacharya. Practicing these 10 habits is meant to bring us into balance and connection with the rhythm of the world around us.
