Rhythm and lifestyle

Do you know your own personal rhythm?

Do you also feel that stress no longer simply passes you by? Is your energy getting less and are the challenges getting more and more?

Regular meals, reducing the pace, more feel-good times and finally thinking about your own desires again to achieve a better quality of life and satisfaction. That’s a good start.

The natural rhythm of life is set by day and night phases. Therefore, one should go to bed around 10 – 11 p.m. and tune into sleep early with relaxing habits.

It is very helpful to do without blue light from PC, mobile phone or TV one hour before going to bed. Instead, it is good to read something relaxing, perhaps take a lukewarm foot bath, or drink a mild herbal tea.

The following organ clock, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), describes the working and resting phases of the organs, as these are also subject to a regular rhythm.

A rest period at midday can be various things, such as a short nap, a relaxing walk, or getting some fresh air in a cozy spot in nature. All of these serve to restore more calm.
Consider for a rhythmic week:
Set clear work hours where you can be productive. Make sure you have enough
time off when you are “offline” and unavailable.
Take time for private activities e.g. playing with the kids, running, cycling, gardening or similar.
And don’t forget your time for yourself personally, in which you pursue your interests.
Determine when you will go to sleep.
We are not made for continuous stress. At some point, the body system goes on strike and irritability and bad moods, weight gain, depression, burn out, and more occur.
