Wake your body up with a slow jog!
People can become quite busy and sleep in on weekends. But upon waking up, they may still feel really tired. Try waking up early on a Saturday to go running! A lot of people choose to run at night, but from Chinese medicine perspective, running in the morning between 5 and 7am is healthier. It can help increase yang qi. It is also better to slow jog than to sprint. Run for 20-30 minutes each time, sweat out all the dampness in your body. Wake up every Saturday morning for a 20 minute jog to wake up your tired body!
