Ayurvedic Self Care For Fatigue And Improving Energy Levels



Many of us are tired and lacking in energy as a result of the pressures and expectations of contemporary, fast-paced living. 

Low energy is typically the consequence of an overabundance in one of the doshas, according to Ayurveda. 

Mental weariness is caused by vata, emotional fatigue by pitta, and bodily fatigue by kapha imbalance. 

You may find that the following typical symptoms linked with each dosha disruption seem more severe if you have more of a specific dosha's characteristics in your own constitution. 


Vata Balancing


  • Vata excess may make you mentally exhausted, disoriented, and unable to concentrate. 
  • Eat a vata-balancing diet rich in fats and grains, as well as warm, soupy meals, to combat this. 
  • To avoid vata fatigue, do yoga in the evening  to quiet and cleanse your mind, and limit your screen time. 


Kapha Balancing 


  • Physically, you may have an overabundance of kapha, leaving you tired and unable to move much. You may quickly get out of breath if you do. 
  • To combat kapha's sluggishness, get up early in the morning when vata, the energy of activity, is at its most potent. 
  • Eat lighter, less oily meals like beans, lentils, and leafy green vegetables to combat kapha's heaviness. 
  • A morning massage with warming cedar oil  may also help balance the chilly, thick characteristics of kapha. 


Pitta Balancing


  • Your symptoms may manifest in your emotions, such as becoming easily annoyed, if you have too much pitta. 
  • When you're feeling this way, stay away from pungent and sour meals; their pitta characteristics can only exacerbate your symptoms. 
  • To help you control, evaluate, and manage your emotions, try journaling  and massaging yourself with a cooling oil. 
  • To help moderate pitta's sour characteristics, drink warm water flavored with sweet fennel and cardamom seeds throughout the day.
