Spring Insights

  • It’s mid-Spring and according to Five Element Theory, the ‘Wood’ energy is coming to its lowest ebb.
  • Gentle stretching exercises promote healthy Liver function, strengthen the sinews and make you feel calmer.
  • Dandelion greens are a good way to detoxify and help soothe the Liver.
  • Liver is most affected in Spring; sour is the taste connected with the Liver. Add more sour foods to your diet in Spring.
  • If you’re feeling irritated, with lots of mental activity, it’s probably because your Liver energy is unbalanced. This is common in Spring.
  • A ‘conscious awareness’ of what’s going on in your body, and your life, has a direct effect on your health.
  • Just like plants that become very active in Spring, you may have also sped up your pace in the last month.
  • Spring is hay fever season so Lung problems can become entrenched by May if you don’t manage them now.
  • The bright green of new Spring energy brightens and lifts the Spirit. Look at the Nature around you and you’ll feel better.
  • At the outset of Spring, Chi (life-force or energy) has a “springy” quality to it—outside and inside of you.
  • Stay healthy by staying in tune with the powerful energy called ‘Spring.’
