Vata Pacifying Daily Routine

Nearly everywhere we look in nature, there are creatures engaging in some sort of consistent daily routine. The natural world at large is deeply influenced by the rhythms of nature – the rising and setting of the sun, the cycles of the seasons, and the underlying impulses directing the broader community of life. This Sanskrit line lists the main qualities of vata and provides a key to understanding what it means to have a predominantly vata prakriti. So, having a vata-predominant prakriti means that these qualities express themselves generously throughout your mental, emotional, and physical make up.

The “light” quality may manifest itself as giving you a lanky physique but excess lightness may manifest as being underweight, having muscle wasting, light bones, insomnia, or feeling “spacey” or insecure.
The cold quality of vata may lead you to feel cold more easily than others around you, have cold hands and feet, and crave warmth.
The subtle quality may express itself as being introverted, creative, and having an active fantasy life.
The mobile quality may lead to a healthy ability to “multi-task” or, in excess, to scattered attention, a fidgety tendency, tremors, and nervousness. It may manifest as extremes; as in being very tall or very short or being drastically different weights at different times in your life.

Increasing the inherent qualities of vata will increase vata in your body, mind, and spirit. As vata is inherently cool—cool weather, cool foods, the cool seasons and times of day, and even cool emotions can increase vata. Likewise, dry seasons, foods, environments, or emotions will increase the dry quality and thereby increase vata and can lead to dry conditions like constipation or dry skin or brittle skin, lips, hair, nails.

Manage your Vata-Pitta Constitution

Being a vata-pitta type means that two doshas are predominant in your constitution. It is usually best to manage a dual dosha prakriti according to the season. In general as a vata-pitta, follow a vata-pacifying regimen during the fall and winter seasons, during the change of seasons and especially when the weather is cold and windy. Follow a pitta-pacifying regimen during the spring and summer and especially when the weather is warm.

Manage your Vata-Kapha Constitution
Being a vata-kapha type means that two doshas are predominant in your constitution. It is usually best to manage a dual dosha prakriti according to the season. In general, as a vata-kapha follow a vata-pacifying regimen during the summer and fall seasons, during the change of seasons and especially when the weather is cool and dry. Follow a kapha-pacifying regimen during the winter and spring and especially when the weather is cool and damp.

Being a vata-pitta-kapha type means that all three doshas are strong forces in your constitution. If you are one of the rare people who possess this prakriti, good news: you have a very sturdy constitution. You tend to get sick less than others and can tolerate a wide variety of seasons and environmental conditions. By nature, your constitutional forces will tend to balance each other and maintain a healthy equilibrium. Whether your doshas are quantitatively equal or one or two are a bit more dominant, the strategy for managing them is the same. You manage them primarily according to the season. In general, follow a vata-pacifying regimen during the fall and early winter, during the change of seasons and especially when the weather is cool, dry and windy. Follow a pitta-pacifying regimen during the late spring and summer seasons and especially when the weather is hot. Follow a kapha-pacifying regimen during the late winter and spring and especially when the weather is cool and damp.
