According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) our bodies energy or Qi is in constant motion that ‘peaks’ every 2 hours with one of our internal organs which means that during this time period the organ is most active. Working in sync with our internal organs helps us to achieve good health. If the energy is blocked or out of balance, symptoms will be more noticeable during the organs active 2 hour period.

1.00pm to 3.00pm is the time of the Small Intestine. The morning has been spent with working and getting things done, now we need to have a nourishing and warm lunch, in the company of friends is also good. Lunch should not be a rushed meal but be an enjoyable time, the second largest meal of the day to be savoured. This is where the Mediterranean lifestyle is ideal, where after lunch you can have a siesta. By slowing down about now it allows the small intestine to do its work, which is mostly with proteins as they need a longer time to digest, and to absorb nutrients that the body needs and leave behind what needs to be eliminated.

Joyful Moment - All you need to do today is:

To enjoy a nourishing warm lunch whether by yourself or with family and or friends, to sit back and relax for a while if a siesta is not possible. Maybe phone friends and have an enjoyable chat and catch up. The emotion linked with the small intestine is joy. To help with the slowing down process find some easier jobs to do in the afternoon.
