The 5 Seasons: Tap into Nature’s Secrets For Health, Happiness and Harmony by Dr. Joseph Cardillo shows how moods change during each of the five seasons. The five seasons in this framework are spring, summer, late summer, fall and the winter.
A strength of the book is that the author explains things that make us depressed during the year, as well as coping strategies to overcome gridlock or inaction.
Cardillo begins by explaining that spring is a time for new energy and fresh starts after the burdens of winter. The wood of the trees pushes upward while the wind blows the seed. This is the time to reset the mind and ride a wave of surging energy and boundless optimism. Deepak Chopra said the following about the springtime: “Every seed is the promise of a thousand forests.”
Following the spring, Cardillo explains that summer soars with abundance. By late summer, we begin to put roots into place. Autumn is a time to let go, while the coming winter is a time for dreaming and resting comfortably.
Cardillo believes that all of us can live longer by tapping into nature’s seasonal energy fields. For instance, the winter season is the time for meditation, dressing to protect from the cold, reading, sleeping more regularly, yoga, massage, stretching, hydrating and nurturing creativity.
The 5 Seasons: Tap Into Nature’s Secrets For Health, Happiness and Harmony would be helpful for centering the mind in order to cope with pain.
The book is well written and aimed at a wide constituency of readers in the well-being industry and academe, providing an unusual perspective on advice and choices.Powered by Sidelines
