Would you like to live to be 100? You would be surprised at how many people would answer “no” to that question. Many people are in such poor health that it is a physical and emotional struggle to get through each day, let alone an entire century. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
If we are living properly, enjoying the rich quality of life that we are entitled to, we should all be thrilled to live to 100! In fact, the hard part should be figuring out how to squeeze all of our goals and accomplishments into such a relatively short period of time.
24 hours. One day.
What if you only got one? What would you do with it? Who would you see? How would you act? Where would you go?
Fortunately most of us get more than one day to live out our lives. But for too many of us there seems to be something wrong with every single day we are given. It’s too long. It’s too short. It’s cold. It’s rainy. It’s boring. It’s too busy.
If it were your last day, do you think you would give things like the weather a second thought? If you had just one day to live, your focus would undoubtedly shift from complaining and complacency to productivity, love, and thankfulness.
Throughout the year, nature provides us with the appropriate foods to protect us from the climate, support our health, and keep us in balance. Becoming aware of seasonal foods and seasonal eating habits can attune us to the natural cycles of nature, and our bodies.
Read on to learn about how to eat in harmony with the changeable energy of Autumn, and how this can help protect your "Lungs" - the organ system associated with Autumn in TCM and the organ most vulnerable to illness during 'flu season' (click here to learn more about your amazing Lungs).
The theories of Chinese medicine suggest that each season relates to a different organ system. Autumn is the season of the Lungs. It’s the time of year when people are easily affected by environmental influences, and great changes are taking place in the weather and plant life around us.
The lungs are called the “delicate protective organ” in TCM because they are the only organ that comes into direct contact with the external environment. This can make them vulnerable to the environmental influences which can lead to colds, the flu, or allergies. Read on to learn more about our magnificent Lung 'organ system' according to TCM, and what you can do to keep it healthy and happy.
