Although many are in a different phase of life and may not feel that they have control over their situation, the truth is we actually do. Certainly tragedy happens, but how we choose to respond to tragedy determines our outcome of that tragedy. We are given opportunities daily if not hourly to choose our response.
We can choose fear of pain and stop moving. Or we can choose to listen and learn from the pain to realize what it is our body needs. An opportunity to write a new chapter. Too often we barrel forward ignoring these opportunities only to be later stopped due to debilitating pain or disease. Why not change the ending of your story today by moving the body that craves movement?
Or do you push through late night after late night preventing restorative sleep just to get it all done? That subtle cough doesn't keep you from working so it must not be a big deal. Yet, maybe committing to sleeping will allow full recovery now and more productivity and enjoyment tomorrow.
Take the moment today to write a new page in the story of the health of your body.
Eat Well, Move Well. Sleep Well. Soar On.
