Importance of fasting during Navratri

Rich in colours, tradition, songs, and dance, Navratri is also a time for us to relax and recharge ourselves with new energy. Fasting during Navratri makes that easier. It reduces the restlessness of the mind and brings forth awareness and joy.
Fasting is a way to build immunity and reduce stress. Eating even before feeling hungry weakens the digestive system, which in turn leads to stress and poor immunity. As fasting rekindles the digestive fire, it helps in de-stressing and building up immunity.
