Nourishing Life │ 養生
Your daily choices nourish your life.
Nourishing life, or 養生 yang shen, is foundational to healthy-living in Chinese culture. Here are five important yet simple tenets of nourishing life that guide my lifestyle recommendations. I hope this structure supports your choices, illuminating areas where you can weave more stability into the basket of your life.
Nourish yourself with quality sleep, restful solo time, and rejuvenating breaks throughout your work day.
Restful Solo Time
Move everyday in fun ways that feel delicious for you, alternating active strength-building movements with relaxing muscle-lengthening stretches.
Deeply connect with yourself, nature, and community through meaningful work, time outdoors everyday, and nourishing relationships.
