Learn the wisdom of the body, and nurture the body
Here at Mt. Akagi,the frost has come and a strong dry wind is blowing.
From now, the air will become even drier than in autumn, so hot soups
and Japanese-style clay-pot meals ("nabe-mono") are recommended of
course, but it is even more important to take care to drink good
quality water. First, slowly take one mouthful of water, and then
discard the water. Then, drink water little by little as if you are
eating it, and the body will be able to absorb the water more easily.
If your feet become chilled, or your head is fatigued, taking a
footbath feels good, and you will feel relaxed and reassured. If you
become chilled to the stomach, take a leg bath. It is a busy month,
but please be creative and have a comfortable and healthy December.
