    Seasonal Water ‘Mocktails’

    The Ayurveda Experience January 23, 2016

    Ayurveda teaches us to live in alignment with nature and its changing seasons.

    Here are a few tips to deliciously enhance your water consumption while supporting your well-being throughout the year:

    Spring

    Spring is a cold, heavy season where there is an increased level of kapha dosha. In comparison with winter, physical strength and appetite are reduced in the spring. Therefore, you’ll want to add warming spices such as fresh or dried ginger, cumin seeds, or honey with lemon, to your water to lighten the heaviness.

    Summer

    Summer is the hot, fiery, sunny season. You’ll want to balance the increased pitta with the cooling properties of fresh mint or fennel seeds in your water.  While also freshening the breath, fennel seeds taste great after a meal and reduce acidity in the body. Chewing fennel seeds is also highly beneficial in treating indigestion, bloating, flatulence, constipation, colic, intestinal gas, heartburn, and even irritable bowel.

    Autumn

    Autumn is a windy, dry season of change when increased vata requires a grounding, warming regimen. During this time, you’ll enjoy squeezing fresh lemon juice and adding a little bit of honey to your warm water.

    Winter

    Winter is an inward season of short days and longer nights. It brings cool weather with less daylight, during which you’ll want to add fresh or dried ginger, tulsi, cinnamon, or star anise to your warm water to keep your Agni balanced.
