Move Your Qi

When your qi functions smoothly so does your emotional, mental, and physical activity. For optimum health, move your qi!

Stretch - Incorporate a morning stretch into your routine. According to Oriental medicine, the liver meridian stores blood during periods of rest and then releases it to the tendons in times of activity, helping to maintain tendon health and flexibility. 

Eye Exercises - The liver meridian responsible for smoothing emotions is connected to eye function. Take breaks when looking at a monitor for extended periods of time and do eye exercises.

Eat Green - Eating young plants--fresh, leafy greens, sprouts, and immature cereal grasses--can improve overall function and aid in the movement of qi.

Do More Outdoor Activities -Outside air helps qi flow. If you have been feeling irritable, find an outdoor activity to smooth your emotions.
