1) Build downtime:

When you plan your week, make it a point to schedule time with your family and friends, and activities that help you recharge.
If a date night with your spouse or a softball game with friends is on your calendar, you’ll have something to look forward to and an extra incentive to manage your time well so you don’t have to cancel.
“It helps to be proactive about scheduling, “When I go out with my girlfriends, we all whip out our cell phones and put another girls’ night out on the calendar for 1 month later.”

“A lot of my clients tend to wake up, shower, and go straight to work. And they often complain about having no time to do anything,” Wake up 15min early to do some stretching or quick arobic exercise to get your heart rate pumping so you can take on the day.

2) Drop Activities that Zap your energy

Many people waste their time on activities or people that add no value — for example, spending too much time at work with a colleague who is constantly venting and gossiping,

Take stock of activities that don’t enhance your career or personal life, and minimize the time you spend on them.
You may even be able to leave work earlier if you make a conscious effort to limit the time you spend on the web and social media sites, making personal calls, or checking your bank balance. “We often get sucked into these habits that are making us much less efficient without realizing it,

3) Rethink your errands.
Consider whether you can outsource any of your time-consuming household chores or errands.
Could you order your groceries online and have them delivered? Hire a kid down the street to mow your lawn? Have your dry cleaning picked up and dropped off at your home or office? Order your stamps online so you don’t have to go to the post office? Even if you’re on a tight budget, you may discover that the time you’ll save will make it worth it.
Stack also suggests trading services with friends. Offer to do tasks that you enjoy or that you were planning to do anyway.
“You could exchange gardening services for babysitting services,” Stack says. “If you like to cook, you could prepare and freeze a couple of meals and give them to a friend in exchange for wrapping your holiday gifts.”

4) Get moving.
It’s hard to make time for exercise when you have a jam-packed schedule, but it may ultimately help you get more done by boosting your energy level and ability to concentrate.
“Research shows exercise can help you to be more alert,” Brooks says. “And I’ve noticed that when I don’t exercise because I’m trying to squeeze in another half hour of writing, I don’t feel as alert.”
Samantha Harris, a lawyer who works for a nonprofit organization in Philadelphia, goes to her gym 2 or 3 mornings a week before her family wakes up. “It’s been a real boost in terms of the way I feel for the rest of the day,” she says. “I feel like my head is clearer and I’ve had a little time to myself.”

5) Practice Mindfulness
Mindfulness is a growing movement that encourages people to take a minute to take notice of their body and its surroundings.

-Stress Buster. Helps to respond to stressful situations
-Much needed to unplug in today’s society
-Pain Management, Alert, Increase productivity,
CJ: You can pause and reflect before sending an email to someone. Try taking a few breaths before picking up the phone to call a customer or client. When you’re eating your lunch, turn away from your computer. Notice the color, smell, and taste of your food.
Mindfulness will help you gain clarity to solve problems. You’ll learn to be more flexible and creative. Multitasking less and focusing on one task at a time will help make you more effective. You’ll get more work done with less wear and tear.

Foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

All living organisms are comprised of two fundamental elements:

Structural (Yin)- Organs, Bones, Muscles, Nerves, Body Fluids

Spiritual (Yang)- Internal Energy, Brain Waves(thoughts) and Nervous System Signals. Spiritual elements are named Qi.

HOW TCM WORKS

Any structural or electronical abnormality may result in disorders, dis-ease and symptoms malfunctions.

Early healers accumulated empirical data that specific herbs could cure specific dis-ease of the body. Western Medicine uses synthetic medicine which limits it’s effectiveness. Western medicine can only relieve symptoms or use vaccines to promote the body’s self-defence functions.

The drawbacks of western medicine are side effects from drugs, and tissue damage.

TCM doesn’t use synthetic drugs or chemicals. But herbs(including natural minerals, animal parts) for different disorders. 

TCM methods focus on macroscopic symptoms of disorders, (ie: the body’s own alarms or reactions to malfunctions)

herbs

Through Acupuncture/Acupressure, herbs, Dietary theory disorders are often cured when all patients symptoms have abated, even without knowing the cause of the disorder. Self-healing capabilities of any living organism can be activated via normalization and balance of body functions and nervous systems.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based more on explaining Qi flow functional & systematic aspects of body system and their relationship to natural world.

Compared to TCM, Western drugs are more effective when causes are identified(ie bacteria infection) but less effective when overall problems exists after pathogens are gone. 

Proven techniques such as foot-reflexology, ear acupuncture indicate that the electrical aspect of living body may possess some self-organizing properties. 

It’s found that TCM organ functional models are more effective for some systemic disorders than the detailed western diagnosis treatment and methods.
