Beginning of Winter Solar Term
Today marks the beginning of winter. Winter is the last season of the year. The weather is cold, everything is hidden, the human body is also adapting to nature and metabolism is relatively slower, so the main point of healthy living is to nourish yin and protect yang. At this time, you should move less. You can also enjoy the sunlight to raise yang qi, go to bed early and get up late, to consume less qi and sweat less. Those who are sport lovers should changed from sweat inducing cardio exercise or hot yoga to easy exercise such as jogging, stretching or static yoga. You should eat foods that can dispel cold and keep warm mainly during this time. However, the southern climate is not too cold yet, you can replenish your kidneys first. Black sesame, chestnuts and walnuts and other nuts are good choices.
