light snow is the 20th solar term of the year. At this time, the weather is getting colder and colder, the growth of all things is almost stopped, and the vitality between heaven and earth is bleak and blocked into winter. After the light snow, the human body's Yang Qi is hidden. The fundamental health care should be to collect Yin and protect Yang. The folk dietary tonic activities continue. Then let the old yellow calendar introduce you to the upcoming light snow solar term on November 22, 2017.


on November 22 or 23 every year, when the sun reaches 240 ° of the Yellow meridian, people usher in the light snow solar term. "Light snow" is a festival that reflects the weather phenomenon. The ancient book "the collection of the seventy-two seasons of the month" says: "in mid October, the rain is thin by the cold, so it condenses into snow. The words of the small are not prosperous." and the ancient book "Qunfang spectrum" also says: "light snow is cold, and the snow is gone, and the ground is not cold, even the snow is not big."


"in ancient China, light snow was divided into three seasons: "When the rainbow is hidden, when the weather rises, the earth's atmosphere drops, and when the weather is blocked, the winter comes." because the Yang in the sky rises and the Yin in the earth falls, the heaven and the earth are blocked and the Yin and the Yang do not intersect, so all things lose their vitality, and the heaven and the earth are blocked and turn into a cold winter.

The health preservation of Xiaoxue solar term focuses on nourishing the kidney. In winter, the metabolism of the human body is relatively low after the Yang Qi of the human body is closed. Therefore, it is necessary to rely on the driving force of life - "kidney" to play a role, so as to ensure that life activities adapt to natural changes. Therefore, a very important point of health preservation in winter is "nourishing the kidney and preventing cold". The following points are the key points to implement this principle.

is hidden inside. In addition to paying attention to maintaining mental peace, we should also learn to adjust bad emotions in time when we are hidden inside. When we are in a state of tension, excitement, anxiety and depression, we should restore psychological calm as soon as possible. At the same time, we should also prevent the occurrence of seasonal emotional disorders in winter.

"The so-called seasonal affective disorder refers to that some people are prone to depression, laziness, drowsiness and other phenomena in winter, which occur year after year. This phenomenon is more common in young people, especially women. The prevention method is to spend more time in the sun to prolong the light time, which is the natural therapy for regulating emotions."


“ The basic principle of dietary heat preservation in winter should be "heat preservation". Therefore, the foods that should be eaten more in winter include mutton, dog meat, goose, duck, radish, walnut, chestnut, sweet potato, etc. at the same time, the principle of "eat less salty and eat more bitter" should be followed.

In winter, when the kidney meridian is vigorous, the kidney is salty and the heart is bitter. When you eat too much salty taste, it will make the already hyperactive kidney water more hyperactive, so as to weaken the strength of the heart Yang. Therefore, you should eat more bitter food to help the heart Yang. Do not eat sticky and cold food in winter, because this kind of food belongs to "drinking", which is easy to damage the Yang of the spleen and stomach.

Keep your feet warm. Cold feet and poor blood circulation will cause upper respiratory tract diseases such as nose, pharynx and trachea. Therefore, in light snow season, both children and the elderly should soak their feet in hot water and massage slightly before going to bed to prevent respiratory tract infection.
