Managing our Lifestyle

A person who waits until they are sick
to attend to their health is like a person
who digs a well when they are already thirsty...
— Qi Bo, 3rd century BC

Regular Exercise

Lack of exercise, poor posture and improper breathing habits can contribute to a number of disorders. Regular attention to these areas can help create enormous changes in levels of well-being.

Regular aerobic exercise, in combination with herbs and proper diet, can resolve many conditions arising from poor blood circulation, a state of being that Eastern medicine terms “blood stasis”.

The practical knowledge of Yoga, Qi Gong and physical therapy can be applied in various exercises designed to relieve musculo-skeletal problems, and to help release unhelpful physical (and mental / emotional) habits.

Rest & Meditation

Rest is as essential as activity for a balanced and healthy life. Learning to meditate has many documented benefits, including:

  • Greater peace of mind

  • Improved health

  • Reduced stress

Spiritual Fulfillment

While spirituality is a personal matter, it is important to consider what is important to you and what gives meaning and purpose to your life.

Perhaps it is being involved in community activity; perhaps creating art or music; perhaps sharing with family and friends; perhaps connecting with nature… Whatever it is for you, it is important to make time to connect with this regularly.
