Fall is a time of transition. Not only does the weather get colder, but our schedules change. It seems that it’s the time of year when we get busier, but the days get shorter. Kids go back to school, and routines change.
Vata season in general is from October through February, when the weather cools off and leaves turn color and fall off the trees, and ending with the onset of spring. Vata is associated with a windy, dry, and cold climate. As our external environment changes, it increases Vata in our own internal environment.
According to Ayurveda having a seasonal routine is a key component of our health and well-being. By making changes to our lifestyle choices as the season’s change, we can actually help eliminate or reduce some seasonal imbalances.
Here Are Simple 7 Ayurvedic Tips for a Fall Detox Cleanse
Replace cooling foods to warming food ( Like Soups, Fresh hot Ayurvedic Kitchari)
Incorporate lots of warming oils in the food ( Organic Ghee is a Tri-doshic fat, good for all body type)
Perform Abhyanga (Self-Massage)
Sip on hot-warm water throughout the cleanse
Incorporate various spices in your daily diet
Perform gentle Yoga each morning
Sip on warm herbal tea throughout the day
These are just a couple ways that you can support your body and mind in feeling more grounded this fall. Every individual will require different treatment depending on their body-type and current issues, but there are some general rules that will remain the same.
