Where your Yin meets its Yang
Do you ever wonder why some days nothing feels right? The most likely reason for this is an energetic imbalance, which you may or may not be aware of.
Do you work too hard, feel stressed, lack a good night’s sleep, can’t wait for the holidays? If this sounds familiar, you may want to explore yin and yang energies to find out how to bring balance back into your life.
Yin & Yang is the concept of duality forming a whole; as one aspect increases, the other decreases. In Chinese medicine, an excess of yang results in a fever; whereas an excess of yin could mean accumulation of fluids in the body.
Here are a few steps you can take to balance yin and yang in your daily life:
- Eat fresh wholesome foods packed with nutrients from the earth and avoid processed foods which are full of fat and salt.
- Choose a range of foods with different colours like red berries, carrots, greens, which will contribute to a balanced diet.
- Combine different physical activities such as strength training which is yang with yoga which is yin.
- Go to bed earlier to allow your body to regenerate and therefore create a good balance between yin and yang.
- Give your friend or partner a hug. This creates a surge in positive ‘vibrations’ (hormones) and balances out the negative energy around you.
