Pitta Man in Relationships


Mr. Pitta is steaming hot, but that’s not always such a good thing. Pitta dosha creates the heat we need to live, but if it gets excessive, Mr. Pitta can blow like a volcano.

Sure, he’s ambitious and productive. He’s intelligent, with a sharp wit and a good ability to concentrate. He sure can get things done, and is focused on his goals like a laser beam. Remember those good qualities and help Mr. Pitta cultivate them. He is ambitious by nature but can be demanding and abrasive, so he may need gentle reminders to cool off and stay centered. Sometimes calling a break in an intense conversation is just the thing when Mr. Pitta is getting too riled up. Giving him the time to cool down will often solve the problem.

Midday, from around 10 am to 2 pm is the challenging time for Mr. Pitta. Pitta dosha tends to be at its highest during that time, and he can get physically and mentally overheated. Also, he is likely drawn to hot spices, including chilies, onion and garlic, which are exactly the wrong thing for him. Instead, encourage him to concentrate on cooling food and herbs.

Mr. Pitta works hard and plays hard. He works at full blast all day and sometimes has trouble turning off his active mind to go to sleep, so he needs some time between work and sleep to really wind down. A cool shower or bath also helps him get restful night’s sleep.

Pitta dosha has another time of activity from 10 pm to 2 am, so bedtime should be at the same time each night, preferably before 10:00 P.M.

Pitta types can experience health and emotional effects with overexposure to the sun, and their eyes are sensitive to light. Take cooling evening strolls to balance his heat and enjoy the coziness when you get back home.

Mr. Pitta does better if he avoids
• Spicy, sour, salty food
• Recreational drugs and alcohol
• Hot weather
• Emotional intensity
• Competition

What do you do to keep your Mr. Pitta cool and collected?
