Happy New Year! I wish you all the best as we begin 2013. I'm happy to be in the midst of Winter. I can't even believe I'm saying that! The snow is beautiful (not too much, not too little), the weather is crisp (not too cold, not too warm) and the coziness of the season has me inspired to sleep longer, read more books and make more soup!
Embracing the inward direction that cold brings is one way to harmonize with this often difficult season. Adding more warming foods to your diet helps too! If you feel that you are constantly cold or low energy, then hot tea, meat soups, warm breakfasts and stewed fruits will help build Qi. It is equally important to avoid most dairy, tropical fruits, raw foods and refined sugar when feeling cold and fatigued. And always remember to take time to enjoy your meals!
All the best to you and yours,
Diplomate of Asian Bodywork Therapy!
