Today is the first day of Spring in the Chinese Calendar. Yes, spring! Although it may not FEEL like Spring, this is the time of year when the days start to become noticeably longer. Allergy season is just around the corner, so make sure to book some acupuncture treatments now to avoid suffering!
The Tiger represents revolutionary ideas and doing away with old ways. Tiger month brings with it renewed creativity, vitality, enthusiasm and hope. It’s a good time to daydream about what you’d like to do this year and to make plans. Wait until next month to put them into action though!
This is also a good time to gently increase your physical activity, such as starting a stretching routine, adding an extra 15 minutes to your workout, and going for relaxing walks.
This time of year can lend itself to impatience and irritable moods, so take extra care to be patient and kind. Remember, it will start to feel like spring very soon!
Spring foods: eat one daily portion of sprouts and one daily portion of yogurt.
