Many of us may share the same feeling of inexplicable drowsiness, battling sleep issues as we embrace spring. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a term for it: chunkun or “spring sleepiness”. Sleep issues can impact so much of our lives.

Sleep issues are no fun! When we sleep, it is an essential time for replenishment and for the liver to recover from the stresses of the day. The most important time of the night for the Liver to restore (when you should be in a deep sleep!) is 1:00 am-3:00 am. The liver needs special attention during the Spring season since it’s working overtime to deliver the vital life force, qi, throughout the body.
