Focused, driven, assertive and active. Ring a bell? Thriving off of new experiences, you're high-spirited, high-energy and love to stay active. While easy going, sometimes you can be forgetful due to your desire to manage multiple projects at a time. The Natural Leader is typically hot (temperature), medium-boned, and has sensitive skin.
When balanced, you're passionate, determined, and intellectually sharp. You tend to be a "mover and shaker" in society with intensity in your presence, a strong frame, and driven with an analytical mind. You quickly recognize the truth in situations and maintain the flexibility to change to match life’s rhythms.
Common symptoms of imbalance include anger, breakouts in the skin, and joint inflammation. Based on Ayurvedic principles, the Natural Leader is also known as a Pitta type.
Imbalance for your constitution type shows up in the form of acne, acid reflux, anger, irritability and inflammation.
Early signs can be seen in joint inflammation or skin issues like acne, or eczema. Heartburn, acid reflux and ulcers are also physical signs of imbalance.
Emotionally, you may feel stressed, overly critical, impatient, and have perfectionist, controlling qualities.
Relax. Take a moonlight walk, a dip in the pool. Think cooling and healing, turn down all that natural heat. Be spontaneous and go with the flow, lean into the life’s natural ebb and flow. Loosen your grip and practice the art of surrender.
When exercising, work with forms that are calm and steady like a vinyasa yoga class, hikes in nature, and moderate biking.
- Eat more naturally sweet, cooling, and heavy foods as they'll pacify you (e.g. coconut water, coconut oil, juice, smoothies, salads, yogurt, cucumber).
- Eat less of pungent (spicy), sour, and salty foods (e.g. sriracha).
- Good herbs for you: cumin, coriander, mint, fennel and cardamom.
- Hydration is the name of the game; drink cold water throughout the day.
