Your constitution type is Pitta-Kapha

How do you know when Pitta-Kapha is imbalanced?

Pitta-Kapha's imbalance can be seen in bouts of lethargy, weight gain, and being overly critical/judgmental with inconsistent elimination patterns. 

Depending on the season as noted above, one will see different imbalances (see Pitta and Kapha separately).

Lifestyle
Keeping the fire lit, but not all consuming is essential for this Bi-Dosha. Balancing the Earth, water, and fire. Stimulating and changing activities will keep Pitta-Kapha's on their toes and prevent stagnation. Take a road trip, try a new hobby, try something (anything) new. Sleep sure to get adequate sleep, ideally going to bed 10/11pm and rising early to avoid sluggishness.
Exercise
Balance is key. Find a medium for active and relaxing actives. Balance out soul cycle, or kickboxing class with yin yoga or time with Mama Earth (ie. gardening, hiking). Work hard, play hard.
Diet
  • Bitter, astringent, and cooling foods will soothe Pitta-Kapha
  • Eat in season
  • Meals should be regular, with the biggest meal of the day being Lunch
  • Pacifying foods: Grains (like quinoa and wild rice), light and cooling fruits (like apples, blueberries, cherries),and cooked vegetables are great meal options
  • Room temperature water, not iced or boiling hot
