In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Springtime is associated with the Wood element and the gall bladder and liver meridians. It’s a season of cleansing and renewal, as new movement and growth start.
I think of “cleansing” my body by making an effort to cut back on sweet and heavier comfort foods, like my beloved almond croissants, and increase greens and fruits. Check out Staying Healthy with the Seasons, a book I’ve written about before, for more information on cleansing.
Also, cleansing my physical space with a de-cluttering, is a part of spring cleaning.
As you move into this new season, consider these questions:
What new movement do I want to create in my life?
What energizes me?
How can I clear out the blocks to growth?
