I don’t know about you, but I can’t trade my inner peace for anything.
However, it’s easy to find yourself drained with family to take care of and the hustles and bustles of life.
Chi refers to the life energy within you and the energy in all things. The drain you feel is a sign of chi deficiency.
Should you find your energy depleted, here is a guide to walk you on restoring it.
But first of all, let me show you the other signs and symptoms of chi deficiency…
Signs and symptoms of chi deficiency
Some of the other signs of this deficiency according to Healthline include:
- Trouble waking up
- Days long brain fog
- Acid reflux
- Gas or bloating
- Diarrhoea or nausea without eating unpleasant food
- Loss of appetite
How do you restore your chi?
Restoring your chi is important in your everyday life.
It mostly gives you the liveliness and the morale to go about your daily activities.
Other important benefits of chi are balanced digestion, good endurance and relatively high immunity.
Chi can also help you fight off diseases each time an illness puts you down.
Due to the numerous benefits of your chi, it is crucial that you always keep it fully restored.
However, it is quite common to feel drained sometimes.
Your chi levels may hit a rock bottom and your body may often feel weak.
When this happens, it is a wake-up call that you need to gather yourself and harness your chi to fresh new levels.
In the case of depleted inner energy, you can restore it by:
Getting enough sleep
In my case, I know that chi deficiency is knocking when I start feeling tired and constantly burned out.
This feeling may lag your days and render you unproductive.
To rectify it, I get seven to nine hours of night sleep.
Getting enough sleep will rejuvenate your body.
And when you wake up, you will have restored your inner energy to the right level.
You will start noticing an increase in your productivity levels.
Trying qi gong or tai chi
Pushing your body to the limit isn’t good for your chi. It would help if you take gentle exercise more often to manage your qi.
It helps with maintaining stress levels and gives your body the light motion it much needs.
What I do is practice tai chi or qi gong. It would be best if you tried it too.
These are ancient practices that have over time been used to restore chi.
The practice involves performing specific movements and postures of your body.
Performing these moves with utmost mental focus, a precise breathing pattern, and a relaxed body will ensure you harness your chi and restore it to a high level.
Balancing your diet
At times, your diet might be your greatest undoing.
It can imbalance your chi. Since most of the qi originates from the food you eat, nourishing your body also helps.
However, you should be cautious. Avoid raw food, junk food, or cold foods.
To boost your energy, you should consume food such as chicken, ginger, whole grains, and mushroom, to mention a few according to MedicalNewsToday.
Acupuncture refers to a system of alternative medicine in which fine needles are used to pierce your skin at certain specific points along energy lines.
Healers use this treatment method used in traditional Chinese medicine.
In the case of acute chi deficiency, you can try this method. Combined with the other ways of restoring your energy, you will be good to go.
Taking care of your mental health
Your chi has a great connection to your mind-body connection. The deficiency can be due to a mental health imbalance.
Taking care of your mental health is as essential as the physical.
Should you suspect that you are ailing from a mental issue such as depression, consult a mental health practitioner.
In doing so, you will fix the problem and restore your chi.
