How to keep healthy in the dog days

Sleep at night and rise early

Summer is characterized by a long day time and a short night time. The human body should also adapt to the laws of nature. At night, it can sleep a little later and get up earlier in the morning. The reasonable sleep time in summer should be: 22:00-23:00 for bedtime and 5:30-6:30 for getting up. If you can't go to bed early at night, a proper lunch break is a good adjustment.

The time of summer nap is generally 30 minutes to 1 hour, too short to achieve the purpose of the nap, and too long will not only make people dizzy, limb weakness, but also affect the quality of sleep at night.

If you love outside, this summer's Qi should be used, and the way to grow up is also needed'. That is to say, in summer, we should be energetic, happy, broad-minded and energetic. Just like the blooming flowers need sunshine, we should have a strong interest in the outside world, cultivate an optimistic and outgoing character, so as to facilitate the release of Qi.

As the saying goes, spring sleeps, autumn sleeps and summer sleeps. Especially in summer, when it's dog days, people always feel drowsy and lack of appetite. This is what people usually call "long summer". Long summer belongs to the earth in the five elements, corresponding to the spleen of the five organs of traditional Chinese medicine, and the spleen is the most evil, wet and dry, so long summer often suffers from spleen and stomach disease, resulting in anorexia, diarrhea and other symptoms.

To get rid of dampness, an important health care measure of TCM is to strengthen the spleen first.

During the long summer, the dampness is heavy, and the spleen is mainly wet. The biggest characteristic of spleen dampness is that it makes the human body feel sleepy. Therefore, the biggest impact on the human body during the long summer is the poor digestive function of the spleen and stomach.

You can drink some porridge in the morning and evening, such as mountain medicine porridge, job's tears porridge, lotus seed porridge, etc. Moreover, because of the summer heat, you can add a little lotus leaf to the porridge (such as job's tears porridge) which has the effect of invigorating the spleen and eliminating dampness, so as to increase the effect of clearing away heat and heat, nourishing the stomach, clearing the intestines and promoting the production of fluid to quench thirst.

Nourishing yang to exorcise evil spirits

It fluctuates with the alternation of seasons, sun and moon. In summer, Yang Qi is vigorous and often floats outside. It is vulnerable to external evils. If you sweat, you will lose Yang. In other words, in the hot summer, it is generally not suitable to carry out a lot of sports, after which water and nutrients should be added in time.

Air conditioning disease is the most common and easily neglected disease in modern society. For most people, especially joint patients, summer should avoid the cool, do not or moderate use of air conditioning and fans.
