- Dehydration and dryness can be avoided by drinking lots of water and eating nourishing, juicy and fatty foods!
- Avoid overeating of cold/raw foods, especially if you have weak digestion, have a overactive Vata Dosha, or "cold" element at play within your system
- Start whipping out your warm-soup recipes and enjoy as much warm tea as possible
- Over-thinking and over-processing can cause one to "burn-out" and become spacey, disoriented, decreasing focus and motivation, so be sure to let go of mental-patterns that aren't serving you by recognising them and becoming aware of them (this is all you need to do in order to dissolve them, meditation can help with this).
- Caffiene may cause an over-dominant Vata Dosha to become even more erratic, so watch your intake and become aware of wether it affects you for better or worse
- Routine and organisation can really help to balance the Vata Dosha, so try and establish a firm routine of wake, exercise, meditation, self-care and work
- Get Plenty of sleep
