And those who look only to the past or present
are certain to miss the future.
- John F. Kennedy
The best way to pacify the Pitta dosha is to treat Pitta like a friend. A Pitta type needs the companjonship and guidance of friends to avoid over-stretching your self. Also working as a part of a team and developing a loving, calm home life with family and friends benefits the fiery imbalanced Pitta.
The Pitta type stays cool and calm from:
-exercising during the cooler part of the day
-getting plenty of fresh air
-walking in the nature
-meditating to create more peace internally
-avoiding excessive heat and steam (Sorry all Pitta fans of onsen and sauna!)
-eating cooling, non-spicy foods
-drinking cool, but not iced drinks
-emphasizing fresh fruits and vegetables
