Start the new school year “zen” with an Ayurvedic Lifestyle and adapted cures

Back to school in September can be a stressful time for many of us.

Between new job responsibilities and routine adjustments, it's natural to feel a little overwhelmed. This stress is further amplified by the changes in habits that often accompany this time of year. Fortunately, there are solutions to better manage this transition and start the school year off on the right foot. In this article , we will explore how Ayurveda, this ancient Indian medicine, and our range of food supplements can help you balance your lifestyle and reduce your stress to get your back to school off to a good start.

Understanding your Dosha for a suitable lifestyle

What is a Dosha?

In Ayurveda, the doshas are vital energies that regulate not only our physical constitution, but also our emotions and our mind. Understanding your dosha can be the first step to establishing a daily routine (or “Dinacharya” in Sanskrit) that supports us in our activities, whether at work or in our personal relationships. By learning about your dosha, we are better equipped to combat back-to-school stress and establish habits that will allow us to flourish throughout the year.

Vata: Navigating through changes with balance

Individuals with a dominant Vata dosha can often feel overwhelmed during major transitions like going back to school in September. Vatas are naturally sensitive to change and can quickly feel anxious or unbalanced, especially in a work environment that requires rapid adaptation. To keep your Vata dosha balanced during this time of change and new routines, here are some specific suggestions.

Food: Warmth and comfort

The Vata constitution is prone to dryness and lightness, which can make the digestive system particularly sensitive. During this back-to-school period, it would be wise to favor warm, moist and comforting foods. Thick soups, stews, and lightly spiced foods can help stimulate the digestive fire and soothe your immune system. This dietary approach can allow you to better manage the stress and new responsibilities that often come with the month of September.

Sleep Routine: Regularity and quality

Sleep can be another source of stress for Vatas, especially during times of change. A regular sleep routine, where you go to bed and get up at set times, can go a long way to reducing anxiety. Regularity in sleep habits can also help improve sleep quality, which positively reflects on your energy levels and concentration at work.

Work management: Focus and organization

The work environment can be particularly stressful for Vata people, especially if they face the need to juggle multiple tasks at the same time. A key tip to better manage your workload is to focus on one task at a time. Avoid multitasking which can waste your energy and concentration. Use planning tools or task lists to organize your workday, prioritizing the most important or urgent tasks.

Pitta: Managing competitiveness and the inner fire

If you have a dominant Pitta dosha, going back to school in September can be a particularly emotional and stressful time, especially in the context of work. Pittas often have a competitive nature and are driven by a desire to succeed, which can push them to the limits of their abilities. While this energy can be beneficial for achieving goals, it can also lead to unhealthy levels of stress if not properly managed. Here are some habits and tips to rebalance your Pitta dosha during this crucial time.

Food: Freshness and balance

Your Pitta nature makes you particularly sensitive to heat, both physically and emotionally. Therefore, it is advisable to favor a power supply that will cool your system. Opt for fresh, sweet, hydrating foods, such as fruits like melon or watermelon, green leafy vegetables, and lean proteins. These food choices can help you balance Pitta's "fire" energy, which is especially important when work and responsibilities pile up in September.

Stress Management: Relaxation Techniques

The competitiveness and desire for success that characterize Pittas can often lead to an accumulation of stress, especially during the start of the school year with new tasks and responsibilities. Relaxation techniques like meditation, gentle yoga or even deep breathing exercises can be a big help. Consider integrating these practices into your daily routine, perhaps at the start of the day to establish a calm foundation before diving into work, or at the end of the day to decompress and avoid burnout.

Workspace: Atmosphere and organization

As a Pitta, having an organized workspace can also contribute to your overall well-being and efficiency.

Take advantage of this back-to-school season to reorganize your office or workspace at home.

Add items that can reduce stress like plants, calming images or even a small essential oil diffuser with aromas like lavender or chamomile.

Kapha, finding the balance between rest and activity

Predominantly Kapha individuals may experience unique challenges going back to school in September, especially after a potentially more relaxed summer. The Kapha dosha is naturally prone to lethargy and a certain level of inertia, which can make returning to work and readjusting to a daily routine particularly taxing. Here are some specific tips to better balance your Kapha dosha during this transition period.

Stimulate the body and mind with physical exercise

Adjusting to returning to work in September can often create a feeling of heaviness or stagnation for Kapha people. A well-structured exercise routine can be the key to overcoming this challenge. Dynamic yoga, running, or even upbeat dancing can boost your energy and improve your focus at work. Consider incorporating an exercise program into your morning routine to help you start the day off right.

Food: Lightness and balance

For the Kapha dosha, diet can play a key role in managing overall well-being. Since this dosha is characterized by Earth and Water elements, it is essential to counter this heaviness with light, astringent and bitter foods.

Avoid fatty, sweet or overly salty foods which can accentuate heaviness or lethargy.

Incorporating foods like green vegetables, astringent fruits like apple, and spices like ginger can help you maintain lightness in your body. These food choices can also help you maintain a more stable energy level during the workday, which is crucial for dealing with the new responsibilities and challenges that the start of September often brings with it.

Daily routine: avoid procrastination

The tendency to procrastinate can be another obstacle for predominantly Kapha people. Planning your day carefully can help you avoid putting off tasks, especially work-related ones. Try setting up reminders or to-do lists to help you stay on track.

The benefits of food supplements

Integrating food supplements into your daily routine can greatly help you approach the start of the September school year with less stress and more serenity. Here's how our products can complement your lifestyle and help you maintain optimal balance at work and in your personal life.
