Ah! We made it….its SPRING!!!! Yipee !!! In winter we naturally crave heavier foods to give us more energy to survive the cold. Our energy ( qi) also is more internal and we move at a naturally slower pace. Now, as the days get longer and spring energy builds things quicken…grow…and its time to clear out any accumulations from winter. Here are a few easy ways to help your body get ready to get out and enjoy.
Make a salad including baby dandelion greens. They will help to cleanse your liver. Adding a salad dressing of equal parts lemon juice and olive oil with further support your efforts.
Get out and go for a brisk walk. This will improve your circulation, which will pump more blood into your liver so it can do its job better.
Before showering rub your body down with a soft shower brush or luffa sponge from shoulder to hand and torso all the way down to your toes, back and front. This will get the lymph ( that accumulates impurities) moving.
And most important of all ENJOY!!!!
