Spring is here are you ready for it?
Spring is here and although many of us are looking forward to this exciting time of year sometimes certain unexpected imbalances can occur... It is important to remain aware of the body’s tendency to become imbalanced as the seasons change. Here are a few Yoga Healing Nature tips to properly balance your system with this exciting transition into Spring.
Spring is the time of the year when nature really speaks to us, with it's expansive energy, everything around us changes bringing new color and life. All the buds shed their protective layers, very useful during winter, but now no longer needed, expanding into beautiful flowers. The Spring season is related to the Space Element, also called Wood Element in traditional Chinese medicine and in your body is connected to your Gall Bladder and Liver meridians. Hence when moving into spring it is important to bring attention to these areas of the body helping you keep in balance with your natural clock.
When the Space element is balanced one achieves a clear overview about their life, has good planning abilities, strategic skills and is very confident about which directions things should go. I'm sure everybody can benefit from more of that! On the other side when the Space element is out of balance we can feel very indecisive, have a lack of control, difficulty in planning, poor judgment and/or lack of coordination. All of this can lead to becoming a more controlling, angry, resentful, opinionated, stuck and inflexible person.
These imbalances are all matters that can be addressed through making small lifestyle adjustment and becoming more attentive of certain things. Here are a few of the best things to do to keep your balance throughout the Spring season.
