A traditional everyday Chinese holistic exercise workout is made up of techniques and exercises to develop the spirit, mind, and body. Why do we need holistic exercises? Well, if you don’t have control over your emotions and mind even if you own a flexible and well-toned body, which of course is desirable and healthy, you simply haven’t achieved total harmonious health. You’ve only accomplished a third of what you could and should be doing for your overall well being and health! Being healthy physically, mentally, and spiritually is something Eastern martial artists, medical practitioners, daoists, and yogis have been striving for thousands of years.
A common Chinese daily workout schedule involves:
- Meditation and breathing exercises
- Self-massaging activities
- Strengthening exercises
- Warming up, loosening, and stretching exercises
The following are some of the benefits that can be gained in doing daily Chinese style exercises:
- Regular bowel movements
- Good digestion
- Clear eyes and skin
- Adequate quality sleep
- Good balance and posture
- Increased blood circulation
- Balanced emotions
- Peaceful mind
- A flexible, toned, and strong body
- A general sense of health and well-being, and more
Will a daily Chinese style exercise help me?
Anyone regardless of state of health, sex, age, and race can attain the benefits of Chinese health exercises. The techniques and workouts are derived from the theories of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) which is the world’s continuously practiced and most ancient medical system. These techniques and workouts wouldn’t still be practiced today if they didn’t work. Chinese style exercises are totally safe so there’s no harm in trying it. The only thing you need is the drive to better your wellbeing and health, 15 to 30 minutes of your time each day, and a safe and quiet place to work out. No need for training partners, equipment, classes, or gyms to these exercises!
