I set foot in Urgent Care Wednesday morning, I distracted our bloom for well over 30 minutes in the waiting room, was brought to the exam room where I entertained for another 30 minutes, the doctor came in for 5 minutes and I left with 2 prescriptions. Cough suppressant for Bronchitis, so I can sleep at night and a cream for a stress related rash I'm developing on my legs. My body is trying to tell me something here. SLOW DOWN.
I don't want to moan, gripe or whine. Okay, I do, but I'm trying to use this as insight to make some changes. I've been sick at least once a month for months now, pretty abnormal for me. And because I like to seek opportunities to look at my life more closely; I've realized that I need to switch some things up. Apparently, grief, combined with stress and lack of sleep, wear the body down, did you know this? I kid.
So, here we are and today.
|I'm glad I had this girl to snuggle all day.|
I hit RESET.
As a result:
I did no laundry.
Went to the library for a mere 45 minutes. Books for the babe.
We ate leftovers for lunch and dinner.
And I went to bed right after dinner (at 6pm). Thus, I'm awake again now at midnight. (After 6 hours rest.)
The lack of momentum today actually felt good. I had a revelation that, it does no one any good for me to over do it and be sick. Lesson learned. I hope.
What do you do to keep your life, body and mind in balance? I love suggestions.
