Abstract: Ahara, nidra, and brahmacharya are the three fundamental pyramids of life according to the ancient Ayurvedic texts, and they all play an essential part in preserving human health. Nidra nourishes the body and helps us avoid sickness by reducing stress. When practised regularly, nidra may help a person to live a long and healthy life, retain their memory and intellect as they age, and improve their appearance, voice, and overall health. In addition to reversing disease processes and preventing recurrence, nidra may help boost a person's immune system so that he can avoid contracting illness. Anidra refers to the array of clinical states brought on by nidra deficiency (primary insomnia). Chronic insomnia, also known as secondary or tertiary insomnia, is a symptom of poor health that may lead to psychological difficulties such as dissociation from reality (delusions), paranoia, and hallucinations. There is an increased risk of cardiovascular illness in those with poor mental health because of its impact on the cardiovascular system. For both psychological and physical well-being, nidra is a valuable tool. This review presents a critical explanation of nidra, mental health, and their relationship with respect to cognitive and physiological aspects.
