As the spring sets in, the feeling of invigoration awakens within you. You feel an urge to connect with nature, spend time outside, and bathe in the sunshine. In this time, the climate gets warmer, and the heat reduces the digestive power of the body. As a result, the kapha accumulated in winters breaks down and disperses throughout the body. This leads to various diseases like a cough, cold, allergies, sinusitis, and indigestion to name a few. Thankfully, Ayurveda suggests lifestyle modifications that can make this transition easy on your body.
Replace heavy, rich foods you had in winter with light and easily digestible food.
Avoid sweet, salty or oily foods, as they tend to increase kapha. And since kapha dosha is already aggravated during spring, consuming such foods can worsen the situation.
Indulge in physical activity that burns off excess kapha.
Avoid sleeping in the afternoon during this season.
Drink warm water throughout the day to alleviate symptoms of aggravated Kapha and to prevent seasonal allergies.
Gargle with warm water to rid your body of excess kapha.
Consume foods with bitter, pungent, and astringent properties.
Practice Abhyanga daily using warm sesame oil.
Drink warm water with lemon and a pinch of salt in the morning to stimulate elimination of kapha.
Spring is the season to embrace the light-heartedness that the season tends to inspire. With the ‘Spring Fever’ in the air, it’s a great time to start new projects, take classes, plant seeds and travel while the energy is there for the taking. And with the seasonal allergies and discomfort taken care of, you can enjoy the season to the fullest.
