According to Ayurveda, nature’s elements—earth, water, fire, air, and ether—are present within your mind and body, too. These mind-body elements (or doshas) are: Vata (air/ether), Pitta (fire/water), and Kapha (earth/water). The three doshas influence everything from your body type to your digestion, disposition, sleep, and so much more. Knowing your dosha makes it easy to find the best foods, exercise, and lifestyle practices to support your unique needs. Everyone has all three doshas present in their mind and body, but most of us tend to have one or two doshas predominating.

VATA DOSHA CHARACTERISTICS / MIND-BODY CONSTITUTION
If you have a predominantly Vata constitution, the qualities of Vata dosha (light, cool, dry, quick) will be noticeably expressed in your mind and body. Your body is probably naturally thin and slender. Your hands and feet may tend to get cold easily, and your skin is cool and dry to the touch (especially in your extremities). Your sleep may sometimes be a bit elusive, or easily disturbed.
Intellectually, you have an agile mind that moves quickly—though you may be prone to forget things just as easily as you learn them! Your emotions are likely fluid as well. People with strong Vata tendencies are creative, dynamic, whirlwind types who often find themselves rushed or in a hurry.
These are some of the basic Vata dosha characteristics (remember, we all have some measure of Vata in our minds and bodies). Now, let’s move on to some of the things you’ll notice in your mind and body when Vata dosha is in balance, and when it’s out of balance:
|Vata in Balance||Vata Out of Balance|
|• energetic and vivacious||• tired and/or fatigued|
|• learns easily||• lack of focus or forgetful|
|• clear and alert mind||• spaced out or scattered|
|• falls asleep easily at bedtime||• difficulty falling asleep|
|• balanced digestion and elimination||• occasional constipation, gas, wind|
|• good circulation and even body temperature||• can feel cold physically|
|• poor circulation – cold hands and feet|
