Here are some handy hints for balancing our doshas when they get a little out of control.
Get ample rest
Avoid taking on too much
Eat warm substantial foods (avoid popcorn!)
Drink herbal teas
Reduce stimulation such as TV, coffee, alcohol
Massage your body with sesame oil – preferably in the morning
Practice Hot Flow, Essentials, Yin and Hatha Flow
Allow yourself time to wind each evening
Avoid overeating – a clean diet that avoids spicy, oily foods is best
Avoid strenuous exercise
Get outdoors – particularly at sunset and the evenings
Laugh – watch a funny movie or hang out with people who make you smile!
Practice Hatha Flow, Yin and Essentials
Exercise – get moving!
Variety is the key – explore new places, new people new experiences
Avoid overeating – especially sweet and heavy foods. Light meals that will stimulate your digestion are best
Drink ginger tea
Stay warm but avoid dampness
Practice Hot Flow, Vinyasa, Hatha Flow and Essentials
Remember we are all a unique combination of all three doshas so any one element may be unbalanced at any one time. By following these simple lifestyle choices you will be feeling clear, centred and balanced in no time.
