Right now, in Sydney, it is Small Intestine time…When we should probably all be taking a siesta. I know this from reading the Perfect Day Plan by Jost Sauer – a really cool & quickly accessible guide to living your life a la the principles of Chinese Medicine. Okay, like many a health guide, it does all boil down to Early-T0-Bed & Early-To-Rise = healthy/wealthy/wise + lay off the stodge but it’s a brill book, especially if you are interested in acupuncture, Qi et all but want something simple to read.
Some tidbits: “Toast is not chi building food.”
“The minute you feel negative emotions – whether it is anger, insecurity or paranoia – it is an indication that you are low on chi or blood or nutrients.”
“Weights are sometimes called the yoga of the west and this is absolutely true. Doing weights breaks down muscle fibre and rebuilds stronger fibres. As your emotions are stored in your muscles, this is an incredible opportunity to break down stored memories and emotions and entrenched ideas as well.”
It’s interesting that the time he says we should wake up & exercise et al is (yes) early but it’s also astrologically apt – the Sun Sign and Rising Sign being the same, obviously, means one can be astro-attuned to an unusual degree. Like a mini New Moon everyday.
His point for those who loathe to get up early: “People often tell me that they don’t want to get up early because they love their beds and their sleep. If this is the case, go to bed earlier and really enjoy it.” Why DOES the bed feel different in the morning?
The super-pysched early morning risers i’ve known – you know, up at the crack & cheery with it – have all been Arieans. And Jost DOES vibe mega-Aries to me; cocky, confident, take-all-comers. He also wrote a book called Drug Repair That Works which apparently has a cult of devotees because it is so totally original…
