As temperatures warm, snow melts, and blossoms emerge, spring cleaning seems to be on everyone’s mind. While some opt for a haircut or a closet purge during this transitional time of year, others may feel compelled to lighten up on more than one level.
According to Ayurveda, the spring season is ruled by kapha dosha and, thus, is an appropriate time for shedding and letting go. This is because kapha dosha is characterized by heavy, dense, thick, and moist qualities, so countering those qualities with light, warm, dry, bitter, and purifying foods is fitting. Also, whereas fall and winter are an excellent time to bolster one’s strength, our bodies naturally gain strength during the spring and summer—making spring the perfect time for cleansing foods and purifying practices.
