THE 3 AYURVEDIC DOSHAS

In ayurveda there is 3 different doshas, or constellation types. We all have each of these doshas in us, but we tend to have one or two more dominant doshas. Based on these doshas you can find out what brings you out of balance, and what brings you into balance and what makes you the best version of yourself. If you have no idea what ayurveda is, then I have written a little blogpost about ayurveda in general here, but today I want to write a bit about the 3 different doshas.

The 3 different doshas are vata, kapha and pitta. Below you will find some descriptions about the characteristics for each type and what brings them out of balance and what brings them into balance. You can take ayurveda tests several places online or in books, or you might even be able to see which one is your primary one simply based on the descriptions below.

 

Picture source: Raw Ayurveda

 

Vata – space and air

  • Characteristics: typical slim, small persons. Easy to see bones. Tendency to dry skin. Often have cold hands and feet, speaks fast and sleeps very lightly.
  • Vata in balance: imaginative, enthusiastic, flexible, generous, easily gets friends, ready, happy, creative, good communicator, light body, does not care about routines, ordinary and predictable ways. Learns quickly, loving. Because vata is very cold, light and dry it needs warm, stability and routines.
  • Vata in imbalance: easily gets out of balance during the winter and the cold months, and by stress, hard exercising or too much activity, travelling and instability. Easily gets constipated, shakes easily, easily looses appetite, sleepless, gets anxious, have a hard time making decisions and standing by them, feeling divided, dry skin, cannot stay still, worries a lot, anxious, indecisive, unfocused, do things fast, forgets to eat, gets overwhelmed by too much at once.

 

Kapha – Water and Earth

  • Characteristics: Often big and strong.  Skin is clear and eyes are moisture and beautiful. Hair is typically thick, shiny and waved. Strong appetite, good immune system, moves slowly and calmly, loves to sleep for a long time and deep.
  • Kapha in balance: calm, stable, romantic, grounding, a good support for many people, easy to be in company with, satisfied, generous, loyal, faithful, good health, likes cakes, full of love and compassion, happy for routines, empathic, good memory, loves to eat, sit, relax, sleep, easily gains weight, healthy body, strong teeth, thick hair,
  • Kapha in imbalance: very lazy, depressive, greedy, turns inward, lung issues, slow, sleeps more than  hours per night, feels heavy in body and mind, does not take initiatives, passive, lies on the couch, eats comfort foods, easily gains weight, jealous.

 

Pitta – Fire and Water

  • Characteristics: medium building, is often strong and well proportioned. Have a sensitive skin, a good glow, glittering eyes with a sharp look. Hair is soft and thin. A pitta is warm and soft to touch, they speak sharp and precise.
  • Pitta in balance: have lots of fire and energy inside, a big drive, is ambitious, competitive, leader, ask many questions, interpretive, reflective, energetic, intelligent, sharp focus, organised, impatient, warm, adaptable, strong appetit and thirst, disciplined, principle, perfectionist, independent, strong body, charismatic, passionated, good at businesses, healthy and strong appetit.
  • Pitta in imbalance: impatient, frustrated, highly competitive, arrogant, judgemental, critical, angry, aggressive, burns out quickly, gets inflammations, gets skin rashes, looses hair early, high blood pressure, cynical, needs to cool down, feels exhausted, works too much, is a control freak, diarrhea, stomach problems.

 

Once you know which dosha is your primary, you can also learn how to bring it into balance by learning about what foods are good for you, what kind of exercises are good for you, which routines etc.

I can tell you that I’m without a doubt a primary vata, I’m slim, have a tendency to get easily cold, gets easily stressed out if I have too many things going on, love warm food and drinks and I have tons of ideas,  but sometimes have a hard time sticking to routines – a typical vata. Some of the things I’ve learned through learning about ayurveda is what I can do to get more into balance. I can eat warm, grounding food, remember to relax and slow down and try to stick to some routines.

Ayurveda is a very ancient philosophy which goes hands in hand with yoga and really looks at how you can prevent diseases, illnesses etc. rather than fighting them once they are there.

 

I’m interested to hear – what is your dosha type? Can you identify yourself based on these descriptions? Or have you taken a test?

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – THE FOUR AGREEMENTS

A little while ago I read the book “The Four Agreements*” by Don Miguel Ruiz, and wauw. I’ve had this book on my reading list for such a long time, and it is such a light an easy read so I don’t know why I’ve waited so long, but I do believe in timing, and it was the perfect time to read it, it really got me.

 

Don Miguel Ruiz writes about 4 fundamental life lessons in his book “The Four Agreements”, which in all its simplicity are some very simple life lessons, yet this is something we tend to forget about all the time. But, getting reminded of these things and seeing them in such a simple way really makes a difference. It lights you up and makes you feel good, and really shows you how you can change your own world by changing your perception about life.

I don’t want to give away too much, or say what these life lessons are, because I do believe there was something very special about reading the book and seeing these for yourself, and I don’t want to give that away. But, I will give you a little inspirering quote from the book:

 

“The word is pure magic – the most powerful gift we have as humans – and we use it against ourselves”

 

All I can say is that I definitely recommend this book. It is beautiful and so full of wisdom which we could all benefit from becoming aware of and knowing (and using).

 

Have you read the book? What did you think about it? If you have any other book recommendations, please let me know and I’ll add it to my never-ending-reading-list!

FORGIVENESS IS THE ONLY WAY TO HEAL

Yesterday I was reading in the book “The Four Agreements“* (which is a must-read!) and the quote “Forgiveness is the only way to heal” came up. I have been thinking about this life lessons myself several times in my own life, and now I got reminded to share it with you guys.

 

In all it’s simplicity it’s about that you will never heal yourself and move on from something if you do not choose to forgive those who you think have hurt or harmed you in any way.

 

Let me show you an example, if you for example have been dating a guy and find out that he has been dating several others at the same time, then you might feel betrayed and hurt. Over time you will move on, but you will never fully heal yourself until you choose to forgive the guy. This doesn’t mean that you in any way have to go up to the guy and say “I forgive you”. You simply just need to forgive him in your own heart. Know that there could have been several reasons for him doing so, and that it really might not have anything to do with you at all. Choose to look at the things you’ve learned along the way instead. Because of this relation you might have learned how to be more open towards other people, you might also have learned that what you want in a potential partner is someone who is loyal towards you. Realise that you would never have learned these things if you hadn’t had that negative experience, and see it as a blessing. I love the Dumbledore quote (you know, from Harry Potter): “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light“.

motivational journal

To take another example, some blame their parents for having given them a certain upbringing. Choose to look at it this way instead – most parents did the best they could with what they had and with the knowledge they had. There’s really no point in holding on to anger or frustration for how you was raised – instead choose to let go, forgive, and choose your own way now.

 

By holding on to anger, or not wanting to forgive someone, you are only holding yourself back and hurting yourself. All those negative feelings are locked inside you. You might think that you are directing them at someone else, but the only person it is truly hurting – is yourself.

 

Choose to forgive and you can thereby heal yourself.

WHAT CYCLE SYNCING IS AND HOW IT CAN IMPROVE YOUR LIFE

Today I want to talk about cycle syncing, what it is and how it can improve your life.

Cycle syncing means syncing your life to your menstrual cycle. We have 4 cycles that we go through: follicular, ovulatory, luteal and menstrual. All my information come from the book Womancode* or the app MyFLO. Cycle syncing is all about how you can optimise your life and your health by syncing your life more with your cycle. Fx we all know the feeling of having menstruation and not feeling like doing anything at all – in this philosophy it’s all about following your flow. If you are having your menstruation you just don’t feel like doing much else except relaxing, and that is what you should strive for.

I really like this idea, because I’ve gone through many years where I’ve been trying to go to the gym when I was on my period even though I didn’t feel like it AT ALL. Now I really tune more in and go with what my body wants to. I know it’s not always possible to do exactly what you want, fx cancelling going to work just because you have your menstruation, but it’s more about learning to be more connected with your body and do some small things which is in alignment with how you are feeling. This philosophy is really all about how you can improve your life, how you are feeling and your health by trying to live more in sync with your cycle. Below you can find out how you can do this more practically.

And just for your information, in the book (Womancode) there is a much more scientific explanation into why you are feeling certain ways during the different times of the month, fx because of estrogen dropping, hormones raising etc. I didn’t want to write about that here, but rather take away the more practical and simple stuff. But if you’re interested, then you can read all about it in the book.

 

The 4 phases

• Follicular phase (7-10 days)

This is when you have most energy and your conscious awareness increases. This is the perfect time for mental creativity, learning, clarity, concentration, researching, structural thinking and independence. During this time focus on setting goals, plan and set intentions.

Food focus: fresh, vibrant, light foods that make you feel more energised during this phase, when all hormone levels are at their lowest. Think: pressed salads (kimchi, sauerkraut), plenty of vegetables, sprouted beans and seeds, energy-sustaining grains.

Exercise focus: try something new. You also have the energy to go for more challenging workouts too at this time.

 

• Ovulatory phase (3-4 days)

This is the time where you are more expressive, outgoing and this is the best time for communication, empathy, productivity, teamwork. Focus on social activities and communication. This is also the time of the month were you are fertile, and you are therefore also more flirty and outgoing because of natural instinct of the body being fertile and thereby want to attract the opposite sex.

Food focus: you have plenty of natural energy and your mood is stable because of all the estrogen floating around, so go easy on carbohydrates and stick to lighter grains such as corn and quinoa. Still eat plenty of vegetables and fruit.

Exercise focus: high-impact workout and group settings. Your energy levels are at their maximum at this time.

 

• Luteal phase (10-14 days)

Pre-menstrual phase. Here you are more creative and active. This is the best time for inspired creativity, out of the box thinking and problem solving.

Food focus: focus on food rich in B vitamins, calcium, magnesium and fiber. Healthy, natural sugar can help with the dip in estrogen that occurs in the second half of the luteal phase which can make you feel irritable. Also make sure to have a good amount of complex carbohydrates to stabilise serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain and help prevent mood swings.

Exercise focus: during the first half of this phase your energy might still be high so just go for the same activities as during your ovulation phase. Then scale down on the intensity during the final days and strive for exercise such as walking, pilates, yoga, mor slow forms.

 

• Menstrual phase (3-7 days)

This is when you have your menstruation. You are more likely to be reflective, passive and withdrawn. Subconscious intuition, best time for inner processing, creative reviewing, reaching the core of things, letting go, new ideas, intuitive creativity and renewall. Focus on time alone, reflecting, selfcare, journalling.

Food focus: during this time your body is eliminating the lining of your uterus – so focus on foods that add nutrients; foods with a low-glycemic index and water-rich fruits and vegetables. Sea-based vegetables will help your body remineralise iron and zinc, which you lose during menstruation.

Exercise focus: rest and recovery. If you want to exercise strive for yoga or walking, take it slow and let your body rest.

 

I have to say that I certainly do not live completely according to the above description, but it really does make perfect sense for me. To live in sync with your hormones and not push yourself to fx Working out when you are on your period and really just feel like laying down and watching a movie. It’s all about learning to listen more to your body and take care of it and it that way optimise your health and life.

If you are in doubt about which phase you are in, then I can for sure recommend the app MyFLO which is created by the author behind the book Womancode. Here you plug in when you have your menstruation, how you feel on different days and it will tell you in which phase you are currently in and how you can optimise your health during the specific phases.

 

What do you think about it? Have you heard about cycle syncing before? Are you trying to live your life more in alignment with how your body is feeling?

AYURVEDIC PRACTICES

Today I thought I would share some of the ayurvedic practices which I’m using in my everyday life, and you might find some inspiration for some more loving and selfcaring practices.

 

If you don’t know what ayurveda is, then I’ve already written a blog post about it which you can read about right here. I find ayurveda very fascinating and, as mentioned, I’ve already taken several of the ayurvedic practices to me and use them in my everyday life to take better care of myself, health and happiness.

 

Dry brushing

Dry brushing is a very used practice within ayurveda. Dry brushing is where you brush your dry skin, to get rid of dead skin cells, but more importantly to get your blood circulation flowing in your body. Dry brushing before a bath is such a lovely selfcare practice.

 

Oil massage

Just like dry brushing, then giving yourself an oil massage, is also a very practiced ritual within the ayurvedic belief system. Again this is a way to get your blood circulation going, but also just a lovely way to moisturise your skin and get in tune with your own body.

self care

 

Tongue scraping

Tongue scraping is a new ayurvedic practice which I’ve just started to do. Basically you just scrape your tongue to remove dirt from your tongue. You can do this after you brush your teeth and just incorporate it as a daily practice, like brushing teeth. Tongue scraping is a way to not only remove a bad breath, but also a way to, according to ayurvedic beliefs, improve taste and digestion*.

 

Warm food, drinks and clothes

If you have identified which ayurvedic dosha is your primary (vata, kapha, pita), then you can follow some of the practices which are suggested for your type. My primary dosha is vata, and one of my characteristics is that I very easily get cold and freeze. This is so simple and seems very logic, but the ayurvedic practice recommends, especially for vata doshas, to eat warm food, drink warm drinks (herbal teas, golden milk) and dress in warm clothes in order to keep balanced. So I sip on tea almost all day long, wear lots of warm knits and a blanket if I’m at home, and I truly enjoy eating a delicious warm and nourishing vegetable soup or a good dhal.

 

I’m curious to know if you’ve looked into ayurveda? Are you following any of these selfcare practices? And, what dosha type are your primary?

TILBAGE TIL DET VIGTIGE

“Julen er hjerternes fest ❤ Hvis dit julehjerte banker for bæredygtighed, bevidst forbrug, klimavenlige hverdagsvaner og inspiration til et grønnere liv, så er Sustain Daily Julestafet til dig. Vi viser dig hver dag i december, hvordan du kan tage dine grønne værdier med ind i juletiden.

Dette er låge nummer 13 i Sustain Daily Julestafet, og i dag skal det handle om at finde tilbage til hvad julen virkelig handler om.

Julen er efterhånden godt over os, og for mange betyder det julestress og jag. Det synes jeg er noget så ærgeligt. For dengang jeg var lille, så var julen den bedste tid – og der var ingen stress, ingen gaver der skulle nå at købes, eller noget med at man skulle nå dit og dat.

Dengang handlede det bare om at nyde den der helt specielle stemning der kun er i julen. Det var magisk, og selvom jeg også var glad for gaverne, så var det mere det med, at det handlede så meget om nærvær som virkelig var det vigtige. Alle de aftener man sad og så julekalender sammen med sin familie, julebag med familien, juleture i Tivoli, og at drikke te og spise gode julekager og snakke.

For det er i virkeligheden dét, som at julen virkelig handler om. Nærvær. At bruge tid sammen med dem man holder af og elsker.

Julen er for mange blevet en årstid der handler om gaverne og det materielle, og at man skal finde den rette gave, huske at få pyntet op, og stresse over at gøre klar til gæsterne kommer juleaften – så man kan hurtigt komme til at glemme hvad det egentlig er det hele handler om. Og det er synd.

Nærvær

Derfor vil jeg gerne opfordre alle til at tænke lidt over, hvad julen egentlig betyder for dig. Prøv at lade være med at stresse over de mindre ting, som alligevel ikke er helt så vigtige. Vend istedet for tilbage til det vigtige – tilbage til hyggen og nærværet.

Brug mere tid med familien og vennerne, og det behøves ikke indebære at du disker op med hjemmelavet konfekt og julesmåkager, hvis det ikke er det du har lyst til. Så køb istedet for nogle, eller smut en tur på café og bare nyd hinandens nærvær og selskab.

YOU CAN’T GET EVERYTHING FROM ONE PERSON

Jeg lyttede til Melissa Ambrosini’s podcast med Carrie-Anne Moss i går, og der blev nævnt sætningen “realizing that you can’t get everything from one person”. Dette er noget jeg har tænkt på førhen, og da jeg lige blev mindet om det, tænkte jeg at det bestemt var noget jeg måtte dele herinde – for det er altså en vigtig lektie her i livet.

Hvis man er i et forhold, kan man hurtigt komme til at føle at den anden person skal være ALT for en. Ens bedste ven, ens kæreste osv. Men, som citatet så fint siger “you can’t get everything from one person” (“du kan ikke få alt fra én person”). Din partner vil aldrig blive DIG – ingen mennesker kan nogensinde være hundrede procent dig, og det vil også sige at du vil aldrig kunne finde én person som har alle de samme interesser som dig selv, og tror på det samme som dig. Og det er okay. Du skal ikke gå ud og lede efter personer dig matcher dig 100 % – for hvad sjov er der egentlig også i det? Så lærer du jo aldrig noget nyt hvis du er sammen med en person som er helt nøjagtig ligesom dig selv.

 

Find forskellige mennesker til dine forskellige interesser 

Her har jeg lært, at det er en gave at finde forskellige mennesker indenfor ens forskellige interesser. I starten af min kærestes og mit forhold, kunne jeg godt have tendens til at føle at han skulle være “min bedste ven” og at jeg skulle kunne tale med ham om alt – og det kan jeg også, men jeg har også fundet ud af, at vi bare ikke har alle de samme interesserer. Her åbner der sig så en ny mulighed, for alle vores forskellige interesserer skal vi stadig udnytte – man skal jo ikke holde sig tilbage fra de ting man interesserer sig for. Så i dag har jeg fundet venner der interesserer sig for sundhed, nogle der interesserer sig for spiritualitet og andre der interesserer sig for bæredygtighed eller markedsføring og sociale medier osv.. Det fedeste er at man fuldt ud kan udnytte alle ens interesserer, hvis man bare vælger ikke at begrænse sig. Og når jeg så for eksempel er sammen med en ven som er interesseret i bæredygtighed, men ikke i sundhed kan jeg lære nye facetter og perspektiver på livet, som jeg måske aldrig selv ville have tænkt på. Og det synes jeg er smukt.

Det jeg ville sige med det her indlæg er altså, at man skal lade være med at tro på at én enkelt person skal være alt for en. Lad generelt være med at have forventninger over hvad andre skal være for dig – men lad istedet for hver enkelt person være hvem de er og lær af dem, ligesåvel som de kan lære noget af dig.

Kender du til følelsen? Og har du også fundet forskellige mennesker til dine forskellige interesserer?


English:

I listened to Melissa Ambrosini’s podcast with Carrie-Anne Moss yesterday, and I heard the sentence “realizing that you can’t get everything from one person”. This is something which I have thought about before, and when I then got recommended of this I felt like I had to share it in here – because this is such an important life lesson.

If you are in a relationship it is very easy to feel like the other person has to be EVERYTHING for you. Your best friend, your partner etc. But, as the quote so nicely puts it “you can’t get everything from one person“. Your partner will never be YOU – no one can never be hundred percent you, and this also means that you will never be able to find one single person who has the exact same interests as you, and believes in the same as you. And that is okay. Don’t go out there and try to find someone who matches you 100 % – because what is the fun in that? Then you will never be able to learn something new if you are with a person who are exactly like yourself.

Find different people for your different interests 

I’ve learned that having different people for your different interests is a gift. In the beginning of my boyfriend and mines relationship I had a tendency to feel like he should be my “best friend” and that we should talk about everything – which we can, but I’ve also come to realize that we just don’t have all the same interests. This opens up for a new opportunity, because we should still exploit all our different interests – you should never hold any of your interests back. So today I’ve found friends who are interested in health, some who are interested in spirituality and others who are interested in sustainability or marketing and social medias etc.. It is the best feeling to be able to fully exploit all your different interests, if you just chose not to limit yourself. And then when I am spending time with one of my friends who is interested in sustainability but might not be interested in health, then I learn new perspectives upon life, which I might never ever had thought about myself. And I think that is so beautiful.

What I wanted to say with this blogpost was that you should not think that one person can be everything for you. Drop the expectations for what other people shall be for you – but instead just let that person be who they are and learn from them, just as well as they might learn from you.

Do you know the feeling? And have you also found different people for your different interests?

MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF

At have tid til sig selv, og tid til at lave lige hvad man gerne vil, er essentielt hvis man gerne vil have det godt. Hvis man ræser rundt fra det ene til det andet, kan det være svært at finde ud af hvad man egentlig gerne vil, og man kan blive helt stresset og udmattet.

Det kan jeg i hvert fald. Derfor prøver jeg så vidt muligt ikke at lave alt for mange aftaler hver evig eneste dag, men at prøve at have lidt fri tid i kalenderen, så der også er plads til ro, afslapning, fordybelse og selvforkælelse.

Mine bedste måder at slappe af på, og have mig-tid, er ved at:

– drikke en dejlig kop varm te
– fordybe mig i en spændende eller interessant bog
– gå ture udenfor i naturen
– lave yoga
– tænde lys
– lave noget lækkert og god mad (eller snacks, de her sunde snickersbidder er min all-time favourite snack for tiden!)
– drikke en god kop te eller kaffe latte med en god veninde, eller min mor, og bare snakke
– se spændende ting på youtube, eller en god dokumentar
– tegne eller male
– skrive mine drømme ned
– tage mig af min krop, ved at tørbørste den, give den et dejligt varmt bad, eller en god gang oliemassage

Hvad bruger du din mig-tid på? Og husker du at holde mig-tid? Hvis du har det med at glemme det, så vil jeg anbefale dig, at du bruger nogle timer i denne weekend på at gøre lige hvad du har lyst til, og husk at nyde det!

English:

Having time for yourself, and time to do what you want is essential if we want to feel good. If you run around from one thing to the next, it can be difficult to figure out what you actually want, and you can get stressed out and exhausted.

Well, at least I can. Therefore I try my best not to schedule too many things every single day, but instead try to have some free time in my calendar, so there is also room for quiet, relaxing and some selfcare time.  

My best ways to relax, and have some me-time, is by:

– drinking a cup of nice warm tea
– dive into an interesting or fascinating book
– going for walks outside in nature
– doing yoga
– lid a candle 
– making some delicious and good food (or snacks, these healthy snicker bites are my all time favourite at the moment!)
– driking a cup of tea or caffe latte with a good friend, or my mom, and just talk
– watching interesting videos on youtube, or a good documentary
– painting or drawing
– writing down my dreams 
– taking care of my body, by dry brushing it, giving it a nice warm bath, or a lovely oil massage 

How do you spend your me-time? And do you remember to have some me-time? If you tend to forget about it, then I’ll recommend that you spend some hours this weekend to do exactly what you want to do, and remember to enjoy it!

WHAT LIVING A HOLISTIC LIFE MEANS TO ME

Jeg gør mit bedste for at leve et holistisk liv.

Men hvad betyder det egentlig, at leve et holistisk liv?

Slår man ordet op i ordbogen betyder det, at: Man lægger fokus på det hele istedet for de individuelle dele.

Hele tankegangen bag det at leve et holistisk liv, går altså ud på at vores krop og sind hænger sammen. Således at det at du er stresset eller bekymret over i dine tanker rent faktisk kan påvirke hvordan du har det rent fysisk – og omvendt.

Jeg tror fuldt og fast på at vores tanker påvirker vores helbred, og omvendt. Derfor prøver jeg så godt jeg kan at leve sundt, tænke tanker der gør mig glad og bruge tid på ting jeg kan lide.

Men samtidig anerkender jeg også at hvis problemer opstår, at det også er okay at mærke dem og at føle ubehag. Det nytter ikke noget bare at feje det ind under gulvtæppet, da problemerne så vil ligge i kroppen og hobe sig op og påvirke dig negativt.

Søde Ida har faktisk lavet et holistisk interview med mig. Så hvis du vil læse om hvad en holistisk livsstil betyder for mig, så tag et smut forbi Ida’s blog. Du kan også læse om mine bedste sundheds, skønheds, bæredygtige og selvkærlige tips og meget mere. Du kan også finde interviews med Mia Gardum og Carolina Ellie derinde.

I do my best to live a holistic life.

But what does living a holistic life actually mean?

If you look up the word in the dictionary, it says: putting focus on the whole rather than just the individual parts.

The whole philosophy behind living a holistic life is about how our body and mind is connected. So when you are feeling stressed or worried in your mind this can actually affect you physically – and the other way around. 

I completely believe that our thoughts affects our health, and the other way around. That is why I try to live healthy, think happy thoughts and spend time on things that I like.

But I’m also recognizing that if any problems arise, that it’s okay to feel them and feel the uncomfortable feeling. It just doesn’t work to swipe it away, since the problems is only going to build up inside your body and affect you.
