Summertime Ease Awaits

kapha pitta summer May 28, 2024

For many of us, the last week of May is seen as the beginning of Summer. Schools start letting out, its time for planning vacations, and farmers markets are abundant with fresh fruits and vegetables.

Have you noticed how more fresh food is available now, how the days are growing longer and longer still and the warmth is growing?

Check out the Tuesday Talk I gave this past week on the Transition from Kapha to Pitta Season.

Summertime is a wonderful time of the year for us to play outdoors AND… there are many things that can be issues for us in the summer, especially if we are Pitta predominant or have elevated Pitta, like: 

  •  acid reflux
  •  irritability
  •  sunburns
  •  skin outbreaks
  •  loose stool
  •  weight gain around the middle
  •  insomnia
  •  increased hot flashes

Here are a few tips to calm the fire brewing inside the hottest among us:

  • Exercise in the cool parts of the day (early morning or evening)
  • Avoid being out in the sun during the middle of the day
  • Decrease or avoid spicy, sour, and salty foods
  • Decrease or avoid alcohol, caffeine, and refined sugars
  • Wake up before the sunrise
  • Eat fresh, local vegetables as much as possible
  • Avoid skipping meals and thus becoming hangry

Much love and light,

Hannah
