Finding it more difficult to get up in the morning? Still feel tired even after a full night’s sleep?
Feeling the pull to watch more TV and to stay in?
Or maybe you have been sick because your body has already demanded you slow down?
I am giving you permission to follow your body’s instincts and to give into rest.
It’s the best thing for your health and happiness right now.
Most of you are super productive people, who get things done. I admire you for that, but Winter is the season to refuel on rest and inspiration. It’s actually healthier and will give your body and psyche what it needs to more easily manifest what you want in the Spring and Summer if you give yourself a break and catch up on all those Oscar movies you missed this weekend 😉
Chinese Medicine doctors recommend you sleep more, eat and drink warm nourishing foods, and expose yourself to inspiring art or books–to take the time to restore your body’s energy reserves and to re-inspire your spirit.
Pushing against your body’s natural tendency to slow down right now will actually be working against yourself and the natural flow of energy present this season.
So, I not only give you permission, but orders to cuddle up inside with a good, inspiring movie, and to do the exercises in the video below to help your body relax and restore your energy reserves.
I have been doing the first exercise before bed, as I watch TV and having amazingly restful and rejuvenating sleeps. Then, I do the second one in the morning after I press snooze to help me wake up and get focused before getting out of bed. This second exercise actually restores the energetic reserves of your Kidney, Liver and Spleen Meridians, which are key in digestion and detoxification. It always surprises me just how energized, focused and clear headed I get as I hold the 2nd set of points!
This series can also be done to help your body overcome food sensitivities, a hangover, allergic responses to environmental allergies or just to boost your energy. It can even help give you more energy to more easily process emotional changes and life transitions, as each of these Meridians can help with both physical and emotional issues.

Much Peace, Inspiration and Energy,
