The Doshas go to the Movies
This study of the Ayurvedic constitutions is really exciting. Once you get the hang of the basics, you will find yourself using your newfound knowledge every minute of every day.
Even a trip to the movies becomes predictable. Who will choose the movie the group will go to? If you’re thinking the pitta, you’re on track. Endless chattering during the show? You got it, the vata.
Here’s how it all works out:
The Vata: Guessing what’s coming next, who will get the best lines (and talking nonstop about it)
The Pitta: Made all the arrangements- which theater, which movie, who drives (and already planning the next group outing)
The Kapha: Munching on popcorn, falling asleep in the dark (uh, how did it end?)
Now, I’m sure there are some of you (probably you vatas) who think this is far too general to capture your unique and complex tendencies. And you’re right, it is. But if you start paying attention you may be surprised at how often these principles do, in fact, play out.
