The signs of spring are here! The days continue to get longer and flowers push up through the soil and stretch into the sun (or rain). The feeling of expectation hangs in the air, the promise of new life and more.
Spring also brings its challenges. You may find yourself looking around and thinking: How did I ever have the time and energy for everything in my life? Why am I so annoyed all the time? How does everyone else have it all together while I'm falling apart?
I'll let you in on a little secret - a LOT of other people are asking the same questions.
This year, I've found answers and guidance in the traditions of Eastern medicine. As spring's energy rises around us and within us, we're often not prepared for the changes coming with the new season. As a result, anger, the emotion associated with spring and the wood element, often gets out of control. We quickly blame ourselves and others when things go wrong and find it difficult to resolve this emotion. Anger can cause liver imbalances - resulting in increased tension and toxins in our bodies. All of a sudden we're tired, angry, inflexible, and it's hard to look forward to the beautiful weather, flowers, and growth that is possible in spring.
The good news is there are ways to find balance and calm to more peacefully transition to spring.
The first two are simple - get outside and move your body. Take a leisurely walk around the block, join a yoga class, or get out for a long hike in the woods. Fresh air will help in releasing the mind of anger while movement increases your circulation and assists in creating flexibility in body and in spirit.
Once you've cleared a little mental and physical space, choose what's next - spring is a great time to start new creative projects, clean out your home or office, or move in a new direction with your life. I'm here to help you make that happen.
I hope to see you at the Community Spring Equinox Gathering or at yoga class during the month of March!
