How to keep healthy after the start of autumn
4hw.org: one of the 24 solar terms in Chinese tradition, Liqiu also means the beginning of autumn. However, there is a rainy day after autumn, that is to say, the temperature of the weather will not fall down immediately, and the early autumn will still be dominated by heat. We still need to pay attention to heat dissipation and heat dissipation in diet. Let's have a look at how to keep healthy after Liqiu!
Four health preservation treasures of clothing, food, housing and transportation in autumn
Clothes: spring and Autumn
Since ancient times in China, there has been a saying of health preservation and health care that "spring covers autumn and frost, no miscellaneous diseases". Therefore, dressing in autumn should also conform to the needs of 'Yin Jin internal storage, Yang Qi internal collection', and freeze properly.
But autumn freezing can't be simply understood as not wearing clothes when it's cold. In early autumn, when the weather suddenly becomes cold, it is necessary to increase clothes properly, otherwise, diseases will not be prevented, but will be caused by disasters. At this time, we should properly increase our clothes to make ourselves feel a little cold rather than cold, rather than warm and tightly wrapped.
Food: no tonic
After a long hot summer, people's spleen and stomach are mostly damaged, and their digestive function is still in a fragile state. Therefore, at the beginning of autumn, it is not suitable for tonic, but mainly for regulating the functions of spleen and stomach, laying a good foundation for tonic in autumn and winter.
Living: early lying and early rising to prevent air conditioning disease
After the beginning of autumn, it is advisable to lie early and rise early in the daily life, because lying early can regulate the Yang Qi in the human body, and rising early can stretch the lung qi. Getting up early in autumn can also reduce the chance of thrombosis, which has a certain significance for the prevention of ischemic diseases such as cerebral thrombosis. Generally speaking, it's better to go to bed from 9 to 10 in the evening and get up from 5 to 6 in the morning.
In addition, after the beginning of autumn, the weather is cooler in the morning and evening, so the air conditioner should not be opened for too long, and it is better not to open or only dehumidification at night. In this way, it can not only cool down and dispel summer heat, but also prevent air conditioning diseases. At the same time, people in air-conditioned environment should often drink ginger soup. Because ginger has three effects of sweating, relieving the surface, warming the stomach, stopping nausea and detoxification, it can effectively prevent and treat air-conditioning diseases.
OK: do more outdoor sports, still need heatstroke prevention
The beginning of autumn doesn't mean the arrival of real autumn. At this time, the heat of summer is not dissipated, and it often needs to continue to the middle and last ten days of September, so the weather will be really cool. Therefore, we should pay close attention to the weather forecast, watch out for autumn tigers and heatstroke.
