VATA LIFESTYLE TIPS
Vata affects digestion by creating dryness and disrupted movement in the GI tract. It can create a fluctuation between fast and slow digestion, and cause constipation and gas. To balance out excessive Vata, enjoy warming, grounding, soft and liquid foods, with Sweet, Salty or Sour tastes – such as soups, stews and curries, root-vegetables, squash, pumpkin, grains, bone-broth, ginger, cinnamon, lemon. Avoid cold, dry, raw and crunchy foods, Pungent, Bitter and Astringent tastes, raw salads, old leftovers, icy drinks. Try to enjoy your meals at the same times every day.
Vata types often have trouble staying asleep. Make sure you practice good “Sleep Hygiene” and try this bedtime ritual: right before bed, massage some warm sesame oil into the soles of your feet and your scalp. You can also have a cup of warm milk (or plant-milk) with some nutmeg and cinnamon.
Slow, grounding and warming exercise is a good practice for Vata season. You could use weights, go for brisk walks and practice slow, grounding Yoga Asana (postures). Slow Sun-Salutations with your gaze on the ground can be good, as well as Yin Yoga.
