One of many ways to find balance: body, mind and soul.
In the Vedas, there is a way of living that keeps one in balance. It’s called Ayurvedic Living. I am in no way an expert here. But have been familiar with Ayurvedic lifestyle for over 40 years.
There are three doshas. These are different types of constitutions we all have. Ayurvedic, as with yoga is the science of longevity and well-being.
These two sciences (there is a third, called Vastu), which make up the Vedic mind-body-soul equation, share the same spiritual philosophy that is now supported by reason and science. In spiritual terms, they say that we must respect all creation—all creation is interconnected and divine.
Yoga and ayurveda share the same goal: to increase our physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. While yoga and ayurveda focus on our body to achieve this objective, vastu focuses on our surrounding environments.
When you find out the body type you have in Ayurveda (there are three types, Vata, Pitta & Kapha), there are certain diets and environments that bring your body, mind and spirit more into harmony.
A person with a Kapha type trying to become more of a Vata will only bring about discord and unpleasantness for themselves and others around them.
A person with a predominantly Vata constitution will have physical and mental qualities that reflect the elemental qualities of Space and Air. That is why Vata types are commonly quick thinking, thin, and fast moving. A Pitta type, on the other hand, will have qualities reflective of Fire and Water, such as a fiery personality and oily skin. A Kapha type will typically have a solid bodily frame and calm temperament, reflecting the underlying elements of Earth and Water

We are all born into this world with certain body and mind types. Trying to be someone we are not, will not bring peace into our lives or others.
