Autumn Equinox is the mid-point of autumn. On this day, the sun is right above the equator, and the day and night are of equal length.

It is getting cooler in most parts of China, we can enjoy a pleasant weather with delicious crabs and beautiful chrysanthemums.

After this day, Yang-Qi gradually astringes, so we should adjust our daily life in accordance with the change of Yin and Yang. For example, we can eat food that moistens the lung and clears dryness. We should also go to bed early to nourish Yin and get up early to raise Yang.

The exercise of Autumn Equinox stretches the Foot-Yangming Meridian Sinew.

It originates from the second, third and fourth toes, connects to the dorsum of feet, goes up along the outer front of the legs, passes through the abdomen, chest, and neck, and distributes upward to the side of the mouth and nose.

When you inhale, raise your arms and cover your ears with your hands. Turn left and lean back to stretch.

When you exhale, turn your body back and put down your hands.

Repeat several times according to your own conditions.

It is recommended to keep away from feeling sentimental and anxious. Stay calm and take moderate exercise in autumn.
