let-go-2This morning, on my day “off” from seeing patients, I cleaned out my son’s room in preparation for his attending middle school. Out went (most of ) his old school projects, the large bin of legos (most of which were passed down from his older brother) as well as lots of other old toys that he no longer plays with.   And since I was on a cleaning and purging roll, I went and cleaned out our refrigerator which was way overdue. Next I will be going through my son’s old clothes (and mine as well) getting rid of what he has outgrown and what I no longer wear. I had all summer to do this, but I just got to it today, 5 days before school is to start.


Coincidentally, this late summer/ early fall time of the year in Chinese Medicine is also considered to be ruled by the Lungs which is about letting go of things that you no longer need (as well as the emotion of grief).  I have noticed in my own life, in my past, that I tended to end relationships this time of the year as well. There is a striving for purity and perfection and a re-evaluation to let go much as the trees will start to let go of their leaves over the next month or two.


So what is it that you are ready to let go of? How does this relate to your body? Are you ready to shed unwanted pounds? Are you ready to let go of overeating, or eating the wrong things? Maybe you are ready to cleanse toxins from your body. Maybe you are ready to let go of old emotional baggage.


Now is a great time to make that change. I offer a great weight loss program in my practice, and it may be a great time to lose some weight before the holidays strike and it becomes a bit more challenging to stick to a regimen. http://www.taraskyegoldin.com/services/weight-loss.htm


If you have known for a while that you need to make a change to improve your health, but have been resisting it, let the natural rhythm of the seasons support you and let go of what no longer serves you!
