The author reminds us that the TCM lifestyle is all about a do-it-yourself approach. Small changes in the daily routine can make a big difference. Not all methods need to be applied at once. But taking one step at a time, observing the body, and listening to what we feel, will eventually lead us to the physical strength we need. Prof. Zhang provides us with the tools TCM has to offer.
