It is now ten days into the new year. Many of you may have resumed work or school and are slowly returning to your daily pace.
It is at times like this that self-care and taking care of yourself are important.
Living a life of self-care, as explained by ancient wisdom
By the way, the other day, January 7, was the day of the seven herbs porridge. Did you eat it?
The seven herbs porridge has the meaning of wishing for good health and long life, as well as resting the stomach and intestines that are tired from the New Year's feast.
It has a long history, beginning as a courtly event in the Heian period (794-1185) and spreading to the general public in the Edo period (1603-1868).
The wisdom of the ancients, rooted in our daily lives, has transcended time and taken root in our busy modern lives.
When we look at this culture, we may find hints for living a healthy life while taking care of our mind and body.
I want to work not only on my stomach, but also on my entire body and state of mind.
Let's take a breather here and regain our pace.
Such as that.
An at-home hot-spring cure that is perfect for the beginning of your own health.
Speaking of selfcare, HAA's concept of "Touji" is another traditional way of regimen, so to speak.
Touji is a form of selfcare.
The HAA concept of "Touji" also refers to a traditional method of regimen, a form of "selfcare".
To be a good health care practitioner, you must have a good health care plan.
HAA's bath salts are products created with the idea of enabling people to experience a hot spring cure at home.
When the bath salts, which are filled with the benefits of hot springs, are added to the bathtub, the water turns milky white and feels soft and gentle.
Soak yourself in the bathtub and simply breathe deeply.
This year, I hope that many of you will take the time to treat yourself in this way.
As we welcome the new year, we calm our high spirits a bit.
Take care of your tired body after a long time at work or school or traveling back home or on vacation.
Even when your mind has no place to go, just taking a deep breath in the bath will ease your anxiety.
To start the year in good health.
And to weave the life you envision.
We hope you will try to start taking care of yourself.
