So a lot of people have been coming in to the clinic the past few weeks saying they are "extra tired." And are worried something is wrong with them. But that is completely normal for this time of year. In terms of seasonal movements, summer solstice (late June) is the peak of yang energy, and it actually begins to decline after that. Its lowest point of the year is winter solstice (late December). So basically from late June the expanding energy has been slowly storing and moving inward, and the contracting energy has been growing. The peak of the contracting energy (yin) is the winter solstice. So winter solstice is literally the most inward energetic of the whole year. That makes someone sleepy, and is completely normal! So sleep away folks, and feel good about it!
