Hot Days: Tips to Help You Balance Pitta
- May 27, 2019
Summer is festive and these are the days you would want to enjoy the season trying out different dishes, right? Yes, of course, it’s time to enjoy the holidays with family and friends, go out, relish mouthwatering food and drinks that keep you hydrated.
However, most traditional summer foods can leave you with Pitta Dosha imbalance. According to Ayurveda, a year is divided into three seasons based on three Doshas – Kapha, Pitta, and Vata. These Doshas manifest varying amounts of the five elements – space, air, fire, water, and earth. Good health exists when the Doshas are in balance.
The feeling of dehydration sweat or irritability indicates an imbalance of the Pitta Dosha. Other symptoms include skin inflammation, acidity, burning sensation in the gut area, reddening of the eyes, and losing your cool often.
On the better side, when Pitta Dosha is balanced, you will feel energetic, joyful, strong, and a clear mental frame. Here are three important tips to help you balance Pitta Dosha in these hot days.
Besides the above tips, you should avoid direct exposure to the sun between 11 am and 3 pm. If you are required to move outdoors, wear loose, comfortable cotton clothing and cover your head. Exercise before sunrise or late evening. Lastly, before you retire for the day, go for an evening walk on the beach or green grass. These will help you soothe the Pitta Dosha and keep you healthy, fresh, and energetic.
