SELF-CARE TIPS FOR VATA TYPE:
1. Vata is a great mover and flexible but often has a hyper-mobile body. She will need to work on her stability and balance.
2. Raw food may be healthy, and she would love it, but it is too dry for vata, which leads to digestion difficulty, bloating, and gas. She needs more moisture in her diet to help move things in her gastrointestinal tract, such as oils, spices, and soups.
3. With her kindred heart, she will be everywhere for everyone, which leads to being overwhelmed and burnout. She needs to take care of her energetic body, create boundaries, and define what she should or shouldn’t do. What and who she should or shouldn’t spend time with.
