Straddling two worlds that intersect both air (creative) and fire (assertive) elements, your constitution leads an active lifestyle and is typically Type A, driven, and focused.
When in balance, your constitution allows you to be fun, loving, passionate and full of ideas. You're a jet-setter with a purpose. You have the ability to be keenly insightful while also holding the big picture in view. You're a go-getter driven by intensity.
Imbalance can show in the form of anger, stress, insomnia and oily skin.
Based on Ayurvedic principles, your constitution is also known as Vata-Pitta.
Imbalance can be seen in the form of anxiousness, lack of sleep, and inflammation in the skin (e.g. redness).
In excess, the dry and rough qualities may manifest themselves as dry or brittle skin, lips, hair, nails, or bones (e.g. osteoporosis), as constipation, or as feeling “dry” emotionally.
Rest is the number one medicine for calming you down. We recommend sleeping at regular hours of the day with at least 7-8 hours of sleep. Regularity is the name of the game; keep to a consistent schedule to stay grounded.
If exercising, create balance with non-competitive activities like yoga, hiking, and swimming. Meditation is key, so remember to get your Zen on.
- Smooth, moist, sweet and warm foods will be soothing.
- Avoid an excess of raw, dry, spicy foods (e.g. bread) alcohol and caffeine.
- Grains (like oats and rice), soups, sweet fruits (like figs, coconuts, apricots) ghee and cooked vegetables are great meal options.
- Drink room temperature water, not iced or boiling hot.
