without comments

In a person’s everyday routine, Qi Gong can be an ideal inclusion due to the various benefits two minute of practice can give. You won’t need to spend a great deal of time, a special place to practice, or fancy equipment for this exercise.

The best place to perform qi gong is outdoors preferably in a place with beautiful natural scenery and lots of fresh air. But it can also be performed indoors or practically anywhere.

There are certain criteria that would make a place suitable or unsuitable for performing qi gong.

The place should be first not too cold or too hot. Wear the right clothing so that your body can adjust to the temperature of your practice area. If the place is cold, you probably need to wear thick clothing. If the place is warm, then wear less clothing. You should never expose your body to any draft, which implies that windy places are off limits for Qi Gong practice. It can also imply that when practicing in warm climates, you shouldn’t expose your body to the wind or exercise without a shirt.

Next, the place should be flowing with lots of fresh air. Practice in nature if your preference is outdoor practice. This means avoiding near traffic or places of industry. If you’re performing qi gong indoors, the windows in your room should be open so that air can circulate although be careful being exposed to a draft. While not preferred, you can still do qi gong in the city only when it’s done indoors or in parks.

Lastly, since Qi Gong requires concentration, it’s recommended that you practice in a place where you wouldn’t be disturbed. If you’re practicing indoors, you may want to inform people not to disturb you while you exercise, practice in a vacant room that has no people going in and out, and turn off the phone while you exercise. If you are performing qi gong outdoors, select a place where people won’t disturb you while you’re practicing.

Through these basic instructions, you’ll be able to find a lot of areas where practicing Qi Gong can be suitable.
