times of day to work on qigong

Postby everything » Tue Apr 18, 2017 4:50 pm

Hi all, I think this topic was covered for taijiquan form already, but I was wondering if there is any specific time of day that may be best to work on qigong: especially sinking qi to dantian and microcosmic orbit. I seem to be best able to work on this late at night. That is, I can more easily feel these processes happening. Other times of day, my energy may be low, mind may not be quiet, etc. I assume it'll get easier as I improve this work in general, but is there something else I should consider - should I be taking up a morning routine, instead, are there times to avoid, for example?

Hi, everything
IMMHO Traditionally, the ancients had sat some time for the qigong practice. Nowadays, you may practice anytime whichever is suitable for you. However. it is better not to do it when you are hungry. It was recommended not to do it right after meal but half hour or more until your foods had digested a little bit.
A deep discussion requires explicit details for a good comprehension of a complex subject.
