Ayurveda tips

Ayurveda-move with winter season!

Kapha energy is prominent but if your winters are dry and cold Vata will also be important to balance.

Our digestive fire is the strongest in winter, so we need enough food and nurtrients to keep warm. So that means larger portions of food focused on warm cooked, slighty oily foods.  Meals that have spice and involve the six tastes.  

Try to avoid iced or chilled drinks.

An amazing digestive tea which can be drunk after meals and throughout the day  is blend of water with ginger, cinnamon, and clove.  

Try legumes well cooked, well spice with a dallop of Ghee.  Drink less dairy but treat yourself to a glass of dry red wine.  

Move a bit slower, and try not to rush during the Kapha winter season.  Try not take naps during the winter.

To help with motivation try a 20 minute self massage with sesame, olive or coconut oil in the morning.

Sleep in a little later, Wind down when it is dark allowing the cooling, calming effects of the body to kick in. 

And feel free to have a bit more sex!
