Seasonal changes queue the body in many ways. Traditional Chinese Medicine speaks about these queues as our capacity for adaptation. The more easily the body adapts to environmental changes are signs of health, and our ability to cope with stressors. The level of your restorative capacity can be seen by how often you catch seasonal colds, and/or how often you feel allergy symptoms, and/or feel run-down. Signs and symptoms of illness and fatigue give us information about our body's need for rest, increased nutrition, and desire for activities that provide restoration and rejuvenation such as yoga, massage and mediation.
