Listen to your body - Getting Healthy IS my job Day 12

Saturday, November 20, 2010

Making "This Week's Best Member Blogs" Made my day - I only wish I could read everyone's comments since I didn't catch this til 5:00 Saturday evening. I did finally figure out the next page option.

Today's mantra
Getting Healthy IS my job Day 12
Listen to your body

Oh yeah... definitely. Give ear to yourself and listen carefully.
It can tell you all kinds of things.
Like: "Put that chocolate down and walk away from the counter, that's right, that's the way, good for you."
"Come on, you can do it, you can stretch! Come on hold your knees in that position just a little longer, you know your back will thank you."

Then there are the days when your body whispers or even screams and says: "Alright already, enough! Stop what you are doing right now and give me a chance to rest, to heal, to recover."

Today is a recovery day.
Too many days in unwielding chairs, too many hours in cars, or trying to drive. All parts on red alert.

Knee pain - check
neck pain - check
low back pain - check

So, I have decided rest is the key. I will not remain sitting too long. I will not remain standing too long. I have completed my physical therapy stretches, and will do them later too. Moderation in all things calls for offering my body rest and recovery.
Have a great Saturday, and even greater Sunday!

    You have that right-even the Lord took a day of rest so why do we mortals think we can do without it????
    Take care of yourself my friend.

    Sometimes rest is the best answer. Rest is the step to healing and making the next big leap to progress.

    Congrats to you! I read your blogs often (don't always comment) and always come away having learned something or been inspired by your courage and determined optimism.
