relocate to more fully immerse themselves in environments that put their lives in the comfort zoneand fuel their creativity and motivation.But is there more to glean from such environmental sensitivity? For example, can getting bettersynchronized with seasonal cycles offer alternative, non-chemical treatments for improving orreversing certain health conditions? Could it engender more meaning and deeper satisfaction inone’s life? The answer is yes. In fact, this practice is at the core of Eastern holistic arts and sciences.It is their basis for living well.
 Which season is best?
 Although we may prefer one season over another, realistically no one season is “better” than theothers. According to Asian medicine, each season has its own unique energy and each energy cycleplays a strategic role in everything from how you feel – overall – to how you respond to pain andanxiety, how well you focus, and how you coordinate your life to accomplish day-to-day objectivesand deeper life-goals.The important thing is you can
learn
to listen to how nature’s seasonal cycles affect you. You canlearn to draw on them and coordinate their specific energies so that you operate optimally in all yourdaily activities.
The process is more than poetic.
This synchronicity will lead to improved decision-making, alertness, memory, conflict resolution, an increase in relaxation and physical strength, andall around healthier more creative living. Conversely, many problems you may be experiencing canbe the result of imbalances with these energy cycles. These problems may include: low energy, weak focus and attention, low motivation, interpersonal conflict, mood swings, depression and more. Thegood news is you can learn to balance and eliminate these.Because we are a part of nature and nature us, seasonal energy movements describe not only therising and falling of energies in our external environment, but the
up
and
down
energy you feelminute-by-minute, event by event, conversation by conversation, thought-by-thought, throughoutyour day, week, month, year and so on. You can feel the effects of this momentum physically andemotionally. When you synch up just right (harmonize) with these cycles, you feel healthy andhappy. You feel like you are doing everything with ease. You feel good inside and out – like you areon top of your game.
The formula is simple: ultimately, if you change the way you understand and use nature’s energy you will change your life and contribute the best of you with everyone you touch.
The Fifth Season
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) there are five seasons. Each season depicts a specific energy  within nature. Spring, for example, begins nature’s cycle of rising energy, for us a time of new growth, a time to seed and scatter ideas and life directions and see what among them takes root.Summer maximizes this cycle of upward fiery energy and seeing - with clarity - what is growing and
