Air & Ether

Vata is the subtle energy associated with movement — composed of Space and Air. It governs breathing, blinking, muscle and tissue movement, pulsation of the heart, and all movements in the cytoplasm and cell membranes.

People tend to be ‘airy’ in movement and speech. Creative, sociable, and artistic, they are talkative, well informed and aware, but prone to switching interests and pursuits. Light sleepers, and fast walkers, with fluctuating digestion, and prone to nervousness and anxiety. They enjoy activities involving speed and mobility, but don’t possess long-term endurance or stamina.

When you are out of balance:

You may lack focus and suffer forgetfulness and lethargy, which further cause mood swings, anxiety, insomnia and low self-esteem. When the flow of Vata energy is restricted, physically you will experience poor circulation, constipation, headaches, sore throat, cramps, abnormal blood pressure and arthritis.

When you are feeling balanced:

You are creative and imaginative, able to stick to a productive routine, joyful, mentally alert, tranquil, patient, and content.

How to rebalance:

    -  Keep warm
    -  Keep calm
    -  Avoid cold, frozen or raw foods
    -  Avoid extreme cold
    -  Eat warm foods and spices
    -  Keep a regular routine
    -  Get plenty of rest
