- better digestion
- clearer thinking
- weight gain or weight loss (depending on what your body needs)
- no more diarrhea
- and much more!
- Sweet Potatoes
- warm, cooked foods (they're easier on the Spleen to digest)
The emotions of the Spleen are worry and over-analyzing on the negative end and feeling at peace on the positive side of the spectrum. If you're feeling stressed out by something, try not to over-analyze it. It is what it is. This isn't to say that you shouldn't work to change things, but don't get bogged down by negative details.
Earth is the element of the Spleen. Connect with the earth element! Go for a hike in a wooded area - just make sure that the path you're taking is dirt, not concrete!
Below are some stretches that you can do in order to stimulate the Spleen (and its spouse channel, the Stomach). Sit in a kneeling position with your buttocks on your feet. Place your hands on the floor next to your feet. As you slowly inhale, lean back towards the floor as far as you can comfortably go, letting your head drop back. Upon exhale, lift yourself back to the starting position. Repeat 5 times.
And finally, love your Spleen! It does some hard work digesting foods for you!
