A New Awareness part 2

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

So, I seem to have no ill effects from yesterday's work (i. e. no sore muscles) so I decide to rake the leaves. We have a heavily wooded lot and there is a lot of leaves that have fallen. As I am raking, I am paying attention to how my muscles are feeling, especially my arms and shoulders. I think my arms were shouting at me, "What do you think you are doing?! We are tired from yesterday. Give us a break!" So, I did and went in and took a two hour nap.

emoticon It felt good. After working so hard yesterday that nap was refreshing. Later, it was too windy to go out and rake some more; the trees are weak and they snap too easily. The leaves will be there tomorrow.

    Listening to your body is probably one of the hardest things to do. Good for you for giving your body a rest.
