It's happening again....the weather is starting to change. All around town you'll see people walking with their warm jackets and scarfs that were previously living in the back of closets.
In Chinese medicine each season is linked with an element, organ, and emotion. To autumn belongs to the Metal Element, the Lung organ, and Grief as the emotion. During autumn, energy begins to turn inward and its a good time to sincerely evaluate what is of value in our lives and what needs to be discarded.
We really enjoyed the "Tips for Fall" that Acu Take Health put out last Autumn. They covered the basics and we really liked that they took into account the emotional aspects that can creep up on us when the seasons start to change. I'm posting AcuTake's tips and mixed in with some tricks of our own below. Hope you find them as helpful as we do.
