So…..inevitably……the back to school cold has reached our house.
I woke feeling seriously bunged up – I’m always surprised at how much mucus and phlegm a body can produce.
What do I find myself doing?
Well as always seems to be the case when I get a cold – I start clearing out cupboards and scrubbing floors.
This behaviour fits perfectly with how Shiatsu views the lung meridian imbalance.
The lung energy likes a sense organisation and also appreciates cardiovascular exercise – a good scrubbing session or a swift walk about.
My cleaning activities have cleared through my bunged-up-ness – and given me more clarity of thought.
Obviously don’t overdo exercise and listen to your body – but maybe you want to try the cleaning cupboards technique next time you have a cold!
