How to Best Use Your Summer Energy

Summer Enthusiasm

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) there are five elements that contribute to all activities: TREE / WOOD, FIRE, SOIL / EARTH, METAL and WATER.

Fire is the element of summer ? so how can this help to put more of YOU in summer?

The direction of this seasons element - Fire - is upward and outward! It is a great time of year to be very active, take advantage of the extra energy supply of sunlight and have some fun!

A good time of year to:

? Ready, Aim ? Fire!

This is the perfect time of year to take a risk and try something new. Many of us let the summer distract us. We think we aren't suppose to be learning (come on, we aren't that controlled by the school calendar are we? Especially those of us that graduated YEARS ago!), yet this is the perfect time to do just that. If there is something you have wanted to add to or improve in your life ? do it now!

? Pump your heart!

What a perfect time of year to really get outside to take walks, runs (careful of the heat), and play Outdoor Games! Don't just use the energy of this season to work more or watch more TV/Movies; just like when you were younger ? go out and play!

? Joy gatherings!

Seek out great friends, family and good conversation! This is for sure the time of year to be surrounded by people who make you feel good. If you find yourself in a beautiful outdoor setting, but feeling lousy about the company your keeping go back to bullet #1 and think about making a change. You are fueled by the energy around you. Make sure it is positive.

You want to use the summer element energy available this time of year to add more fulfillment to your life ? not just work more or create more toxicity. Use the energy to bring you to a new, healthy way of being.
