But have you thought about what kind of impact those conflicting feelings will have on your mental and physical health?

  • Sleep in Eastern Medicine

    Getting Enough Rest? Probably Not. Here’s What To Do Instead

    in General Wellness, TCM / / 0 comments

    If you’re like most people, chances are you’re not getting enough rest. Have you ever sat on the couch all day but still felt like you barely relaxed? That’s because, weirdly enough, not all rest is created equally. There’s different types of rest that our bodies and minds need to feel our best. Western Medicine says that we need 7-9 hours of sleep plus a half hour or so to get to sleep so that we can get into the deep sleep that allows our body to make repairs. Eastern medicine has a less “numeric” take on rest. Sometimes the kind of rest we need is sleep. But sometimes it’s a Netflix marathon, or a long drive, or a coffee date with your best friend. Here’s what you need to know about the different ways to rest up with eastern medicine so you can refuel and take on the world!

    OK we get it, “self-love” sounds cheesy. We’re not trying to be a self-help book, but self-love is actually super important. It’s not just for new-age hippies–it’s for everyone!

But there’s bad news–perfectionism can literally hurt you. Perfectionists have higher rates of chronic pain and issues like fibromyalgia. Being self-critical is also strongly related to high levels of stress, which tends to lead to chronic illness. So here’s some herbs that will help you take care of your body and mind.
