When it comes to talking about the Doshas I think the positive traits are often overlooked. Often when talking about someone’s Dosha we are talking about their imbalance, but there are two ways to look at the traits people have. One is their imbalance and the other is their balanced state. Both are important in finding health.
The road to health can feel like hard work sometimes, so it’s good to also spend time enjoying yourself, to make the process worth it.
Positive Vata Traits :
Enthusiastic, Artistic, Creative, Tend to be good Dancers, Great at starting projects
Positive Kapha Traits:
Strong Endurance, Good at finishing up tasks, Jovial, Deeply care for family and friends
Positive Pitta Traits:
Good at task management, Good at completing tasks, Driven, Logical ideas, Show up on time
Fun things to keep the Doshas Balanced
Vata: Art is grounding and focusing.
Pitta: Being in nature especially wood and water areas.
Kapha: Any movement, walking, hiking, even reading about activities help create momentum to take action.
The thing to remember is that everyone has all three Doshas but in different percentages. So you may have qualities from any of these lists. It’s important to understand that the way the Doshas go out of balance affect how we act, more than you realize, but that also means that you have the power to change them. Ayurveda helps pinpoint what to work on and incorporate into your diet and lifestyle to make life seem smoother and you can be the person you want to be.
