Winter Season & the vata dosha.

The winter season in Ayurveda is associated with the vata dosha. Yep, the doshas are not only mind/body types but they are associated with a time of day and season. Meaning the fall & early winter seasons have the same qualities that a vata dosha in a person has- cold, dry, light, subtle, clear, flowing, hard, rough, mobile. ⁣

There are a few tips you can incorporate into your lifestyle to help combat that often frantic, ungrounded energy that can come with the vata dosha. ⁣

✨Wearing a hat and scarf help protect the ears which are associated with the vata dosha.⁣

✨When you go outside bundle up and nature will help you stay grounded if you slow down to enjoy it. ⁣

✨Build a schedule- Vata loves being a little ungrounded and keeping a schedule will help pacify that on the go energy vata imbalances often feel like. ⁣

✨Self-massage- Grab that sesame oil and lather up your body. ⁣

✨Enjoy root vegetables- Root vegetables help ground you down and are nice and hearty for this time of year. They are also in season. ⁣

✨Routines, routines, routines- Build a morning and evening routine that connects you with you. ⁣

These are great practices to do in the fall & winter time no matter your dosha (mind/body type) because they help pacify that vata energy that can make you ungrounded, scattered, anxious and restless.

Wanting to dive deeper into seasonal living according to Ayurveda?

 

How do you start living a more holistic lifestyle? There are so many avenues to go down and doing your own research can leave you confused and spinning your wheels. I’ve been there too. I have been diving deep into Ayurveda & herbal concoctions the past 5 years. I wanted to create a program for moms in particular who might not have a ton of time to devote to a year long program, but do want to have a few basic tricks up their sleeves.
That is why I created the Seasonal Living Collective. Each season we dive into the magic of that season to help you build routines focusing on Ayurvedic habits and seasonal herbal teas, salves, or oils you might want that season.
