The November Self-Care Roundup

Some inspiration from the Self-Care Saturdays theme over at our public Facebook Page

"In Chinese medicine, we view each season of the year as important in the balance of the others.  Winter balances summer, spring balances fall, yin balances yang.  And just like yin and yang have characteristics and influences that are important to each, so do the seasons have varying impacts on our health and well-being.  Autumn is the metal season in Chinese medicine.  Metal in balance presents as optimism, fresh ideas and new perspectives.  Balanced metal also gives us a sense of our self-worth.  We are equally able to let go of the old unnecessary thoughts or items in our life, and be open to new ideas and thoughts, people, places and things.  When we are out of balance in the metal element, we might view everything pessimistically.  The imbalance might also express itself as an inability to let go of things or people, living always in the past, refusing to move on with or from a project (occasionally presenting as irrational striving for perfection!), or possibly just stubbornness or a weepy depression.
