Happy Summer Solstice!
Summer is such an active time. Too much activity and excitement can produce energy imbalances. It’s important to spend quiet and relaxing time in summer.
As the heat grows, keep your energy balance by doing gentle Qigong movements daily, doing sitting meditation, connecting your body with the earth, staying hydrated with clean water, and eating cooling foods.
The energy of summer is very exciting. With so much excitement going on in the body, your energy tends to move up from the lower dantien to the middle dantien and then up to the head. Once this energy reaches the head it tends to stay in the upper part of the body for a longer time. This can weaken the liver energy and kidney energy. It also makes you feel tired. When you find yourself yawning in the late afternoon, this is an example of being over tired.
3 Simple Steps to Start Summer Fun:
