For instance, I tend to have a Vata imbalance - too much air, space, and rapid movement, which leads to anxiety, digestive issues, dryness of organs and skin, and a flakey or spacy disposition. Ayurveda teaches us to flow like water, stoke the fire when life gets stagnant, and to ground myself when I'm up to far in the clouds. It's really very simple. So, to ground my Vata self, I eat dense and nourishing foods, spend as much time in nature as possible with my feet on the earth, I burn palo santo and grounding incense like sandalwood, and I practice a slow, grounding, mindful sequence of yoga to calm my nervous system.
