Staying up late


Written by John Immel, Asheville, NC
After 10pm you might notice a 'second wind' of energy that lasts until 1am. Many people use their second wind energy for working late, reading, and otherwise keeping the mind or body active. The second wind is actually for cleansing your organs, and is created by the liver. To help your body cleanse from the daily stresses, wear, and tear or normal living, the eyes should be closed before the second wind rises.
