Ritucharya 101: Welcome Autumn the Ayurveda Style

You know that autumn is in the air when the days get shorter, more refreshing, and a little crisper! This season is the hallway between summer and winter and is, thus, a transitional season. And like every other season, it comes with its own set of mind and body challenges. Therefore, Ayurveda offers you a seasonal guide to help you achieve balance when autumn comes knocking on the door.

Here’s what the ritucharya for autumn would look like:

  • Practice Abhyanga daily as your skin is more prone to dryness, rashes, inflammation and itching.

  • External application of sandalwood paste helps reduce the inflammation and soothes the rashes.

  • Increase your water intake (6-8 glasses a day) to cleanse the internal organs.

  • Wear slightly warm clothes to prevent cold and cough caused by seasonal changes.

  • Since the digestive fire is still weak, avoid consuming heavy foods.

  • Try including wheat, grams, and sugar in your diet.

  • Eat fruits that are in season like melons, grapes, pears, and guavas.

  • Eat only when you’re feeling hungry. Avoid overeating

  • Exposure to moonlight is advised during this season.

  • Sunbathing and naps during daytime are not advised.

  • Incorporate exercises that keep your vata balanced and build strength in your workout.

According to Ayurveda, cleansing at the change of each season is a must. And fall is the time when the energy of movement and change swirls through the air like the chilly wind. It can be drying, distracting, stimulating, and exhausting for your mind and body.

But with the right combinations of food, activities, and changes in your routine, autumn can be nourishing and inspiring rather than lacklustre and depleted.
