Kapha Man in Relationships


Mr. Kapha has a sturdy, heavy frame, and he has a good reserve of physical strength and stamina.

Oh, yeah, and Mr. Kapha is slow. Slow eater. Slow digestion. Slow speech. Slow in romance and slow to commit. But once he does commit, he’s a solid, lifelong partner.

Mr. Kapha loves to sleep, and often has a hard time waking up in the morning. He needs stimulation to bring out his vitality, so shake him up! He needs to sleep deeply to rejuvenate, but he should get in the habit of getting up early.

Mr. Kapha is naturally calm, thoughtful, and affectionate. He has an inborn ability to enjoy life, and he’s built for comfort, not for speed. When in healthy balance, he is strong, loyal, patient, steady, and supportive, but, when out of balance, can become stubborn and lazy, and he can even become down and attached to his surroundings and possessions.

Kapha folks tend to hold on to things, jobs, and relationships long after they are no longer healthy. Excess mental kapha in the mind creates resistance to change. When stressed, Mr. Kapha’s response is, I don’t want to deal with it. Kaphas are the ones who have one lifelong marriage, six kids and a station wagon, and who work 50 years for the same company and retire with a gold watch.

He is comfortable with routine, but can become a stick-in the-mud if you don’t rouse him often. His recliner may be his castle, but if his buttocks are gradually taking on the shape of the chair, he needs some enticement to get up and get out and about.

Mr. Kapha may be quite intelligent, but he learns slowly, with a methodical approach. He retains information well with a good understanding, and has a very good, long memory.

Our low-energy Mr. Kapha needs to get regular exercise, preferably every day, with the focus on building endurance.

How do you help your Kapha sweetie use his gift of stamina as a benefit, and keep him from sinking even deeper into the recliner?
