🍁Fall is coming!🍁 . As the Summer heat comes to an end, we approach the abundant Fall season. According to Chinese medicine, Fall is the transitional time of Yin within Yang – indicating an inward shift in the environment and the body. This shift can be observed in nature through the beautiful changes in color, the shedding of leaves, and the reaping the harvest of seeds planted at an earlier time. In the same way, the body will reflect the benefits of efforts made in the past towards better health as we move into the colder months of the year. 🍁 The Fall is associated with the Metal element in a Chinese medicine. Metal corresponds to the organ of the Lungs, which expand and contract in the same way a soft metal can in heat and cold. Metal also governs sadness and grief, organization, communication, attachment, and boundaries between self and other. Take time this Fall to nourish the Metal element by practicing deep breathing, finding inspiration with every inhale and, with every exhale, letting go of things that do not serve you.
