Winter Water Wisdom

The season of winter in Chinese medicine is represented by the element of water. Winter energies are the most yin (cold, dark, slow, inward), and relate to rest, introspection, darkness, germination and fertility. Winter, of all the seasons, especially in ancient times, was the most challenging season to our survival.  If you find yourself feeling apathetic or depressed in the winter months, maybe a reframing is in order? If you understand that it is natural for your body to require more rest and nourishment, and for your spirit to need more reflective introspection you are actually in balance with the flow of the season.
