The Five Elements
Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water. Ancient Chinese philosophy tells us that everything in life is composed of and influenced by these five different elements. They influence who we are, what we feel, and they can be affected by many different factors such as our lifestyle, diet, stress levels, routine and the seasons.
Just as your diet and clothes change with the different seasons, your dominant element can also change throughout the year. It is important to keep checking which element is most aligned to your needs. You can do this by taking our Discover Your Element Quiz.
Life is transient; different aspects of the environment can disrupt the flow of energy and balance. We hope you enjoy discovering your element and embracing the Elemental way of life.
