Doshas: SEASONS

In the life of everything that exists in nature, there is always a beginning, a middle and an end in regards to time. AYURVEDA also believes there are three seasons each year represented by these three Doshas known as the Vata, Pitta & Kapha Seasons. Weather and seasonal changes affect our balance. Everyone can benefit from adapting their routine to the season.

In the fall and winter, when it is cold and dry, is Vata season. When wind, cold, and dry weather continues, Vata accumulates in the environment, which can cause a Vata imbalance in the body. During this season, it is a good idea to adopt a more Vata diet and routine to keep Vata in balance. Stay warm, eat warm foods, and don’t wear yourself out.
Pitta season comes during the summer, when the weather is hot. To keep Pitta in balance during this time, eat cool foods, such as salads. Drink cool, not ice cold, liquids, and avoid too much sun.
Spring is Kapha season, when it is cold and wet. This is the time you are more likely to get a cold from a Kapha imbalance. Stay warm, eat light meals, and get enough regular exercise to help keep Kapha in balance.

P.S. to your continued Health & Success
