Chushu (Limit of Heat--处暑)
10:42, July 14, 2008

Chushu will fall on August 23, 2008.

Chushu reflects the changing of temperature. Chu means stop and shu means summer, so Chushu indicates that the hot summer is ending. However, in fact, it is not cool yet at the moment and could be still very hot in some days, especially in the afternoon of sunny days. This is also a busy season of harvesting for farmers.


In the Chushu period, it's still hot during the day but quite cool in the morning and evening. This is a period where the weather changes from hot to cold, so people have to adjust the balance of yin (negative) and yang (positive) in the body according to traditional Chinese medicine. People are advised to wear suitable clothes and have enough sleep.


For better health, nutritionists advise people to drink more water, light tea, juice, milk, or soybean milk, and eat fresh vegetables and fruits. Fried or spicy food should be avoided.
