It's PITTA's favorite season of the year! (Cold months for your fiery dosha!)
Ayurveda believes in the connection between us and nature - treating ourselves as nature’s interplay. Its elements are within us, as we are within nature itself - making our existence parallel.💫
We have the same qualities of all the Dosha elements: water, air, fire, earth and ether; and as nature changes every season, so do we.Ayurveda believes on the connection between us and nature - treating ourselves as nature's interplay: inside of us is nature, as we are inside it - making us a part of its being.
Pitta is our fiery Dosha. In the body, pitta controls transformation, hence the perfect time to start working on our Pitta-nourishing routine in these cold months. Let us gracefully adapt to the changes, holistically - rejuvenating our overall health. Because wellness embodies a nourished dosha. It starts from within.
Metabolism, digestion, sensory perception, temperature, and our discrimination of right and wrong are all controlled by pitta.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Keeping our home and our work station (the entire environment we grown in) a stress and clutter free home for us is a great way to keep the healing energy around and within us.
