As we already know by now through various articles, Ayurveda touches our lives in a lot of ways. Your Doshas impact a lot of things that you do- right from how you think to how you act and what you do! So would it sound very bizarre if we told you that your dominant Dosha even affects something as simple or complicated as shopping?
The dominant Dosha in your body determines what type of a shopper you are going to be, including whether or not you like shopping at all! Learning about the Doshas is fun, but seeing the Vata, Pitta and Kapha in action is even more fun!
Vata, Pitta and Kapha are the three Doshas that are prevalent in nature as they come from the basic elements like air, water, fire, earth and space. These are the constitutions that determine your personality, your build, your emotions as well as your physical appearance.
So how does your Dosha affect your shopping preferences? Well, since the predominant Dosha can determine your impulsiveness, your bias for a certain colour and whether or not you're patient- these are important attributes when it comes to shopping, and that's why Ayurveda makes it easy to predict the shopping pattern for every Dosha!
Let's explain it through a simple example. We all have to wear something, and that is the reason why most of us go shoppingfor clothes. But how do the clothes that we have end up in our closets? If we completely leave that to someone else, that's a different issue. But when we're responsible for purchasing our clothing ourselves, what we end up putting into the closet is pretty predictable if we understand Ayurvedic Doshas properly.
That doesn't mean that we're saying that it's always going to be the same. There are a lot of times when we make extra efforts with our appearances. That is the time when we try and find some enjoyment in going about the shopping experience, picking up something we like and leaving behind what we don't. But pay attention. You’ll realise that in our most constant and unaffected phases of your life, the tendencies as per your Doshas will make a lot of sense!
So let's start off with doshas and the shopping experience- dealing with one at a time! First up, we tell you how the Vata dosha people shop and what they generally pick!
