Ayurvedic Living for the Modern Man
Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems that focuses on the entire body. With the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit, Ayurveda was developed. It is also believed that the five elements of nature which include space, air, fire, water, and earth, combine in the body as the three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. It is a lifestyle that is not only important for women, but for men as well. Men can live by their dosha and make the necessary changes to do so by implementing simple steps until they are fully comfortable with their decisions pertaining to their dosha. And what better way to start your Ayurvedic lifestyle than by taking the Dosha Test to find out your dosha and getting acquainted with some Dosha Pops?!

If you’re a Vata dosha, you probably have a lot of energy and you always have something going on. It is important to keep your balance and stay focused, or else you could become anxious, overwhelmed, and stressed, which doesn’t make for a healthy life. In addition, you are somebody who enjoys warm foods that have a salty, sour, or sweet taste to them, which is exactly why you’ll love the “Chai Me Up” and “Inner Glow” Dosha Pops. Enjoy them in a peaceful environment, take them as a snack during a hike, or make it your daily routine to have one after you meditate.

As a Pitta, you are cool, calm, and collected. You should incorporate meditation into your daily routine and vow to spend more time in nature. You like to live by a pure and simple lifestyle and enjoy foods that are cooling and sweet and don’t have artificial additives, which is exactly why the “Wishful Pinking” and the “Mytea Pomegranate” Dosha Pops are for you! Grab some before you hit the beach for a long walk or enjoy them after you enjoy a cool shower before you get a goodnight’s rest!

Kaphas are those that definitely like it hot….food, that is. As a Kapha, you need to make time for introspective activities that will keep your mind going, like meditating and writing. You should avoid long naps, but getting to bed early can really help you reap the full benefits of living an Ayurvedic life. After you take some time to do your weekly emotional housekeeping duties, you should set your sights on enjoying the “Chai Me Up” and “Velvet Rope” Dosha Pops.
