Learn the wisdom of the body, and nurture the body
Although the heat of late summer lingers on, there is a cool breeze in
the mornings and evenings. Autumn presents the best opportunity for
improving the condition of the body. Stretching the legs and back of
the knees, rotate the feet (from the outside toward the inside) at the
ankles, and loosen the ankles, knees and hip areas. As the knees
become supple and relieved of tension, you will regain youthfulness.
As the ankles become supple, it will prevent stumbling, and the hips
will also become more flexible. In the beginning of autumn, if your
feet become chilled, spread apart the space between the third and
fourth toes, and stretch the hip area so that you feel the connection
from the toes to the hips. Then, take a foot bath. The hips will
regain suppleness, and the hips and spine will become warm. More
women are suffering from chills these days, partly due to
air-conditioning, and this technique is very effective.
