Nourishing Life │ 養生
Your daily choices nourish your life.
Nourishing life, or 養生 yang shen, is a healthy- living foundation of Chinese medicine. Here’s five important yet simple tenets of nourishing life that guide my lifestyle recommendations. I hope this structure supports insight into 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 stretching movements.
Deeply connect with yourself, nature, and community through meaningful work, time outdoors everyday, and nourishing relationships.
Regularly reflect on your life through organic creative practices: writing, drawing, movement, and/ or vocalization.
