The Body-Energy Clock is built upon the concept of the cyclical ebb and flow of energy throughout the body.

During a 24-hour period (see diagram that follows) Qi moves in two-hour intervals through the organ systems. During sleep, Qi draws inward to restore the body. This phase is completed between 1 and 3 a.m., when the liver cleanses the blood and performs a myriad of functions that set the stage for Qi moving outward again. In the 12-hour period following the peak functioning of the liver—from 3 a.m. onward—energy cycles to the organs associated with daily activity, digestion and elimination: the lungs, large intestine, stomach/pancreas, heart, small intestine. When one organ is at its peak energy, the organ at the opposite side of the clock, 12 hours away, is at its lowest ebb.

The idea, then, is to try when you can to plan daily activity around an organ system’s peak energy, while avoiding actions that can tax a system when its energy is at its lowest ebb. 11 Pieces Of Buddhist Wisdom That Will Transform Your Life.
