How often do we actually listen to our bodies? Honestly, most of us listen a lot. More than we are aware of. Too hot! Too cold! I’m thirsty (that one’s harder than others sometimes). So what do we do when our body is telling us to slow down?
Last week I had that moment and I didn’t listen. I panicked. I knew I needed to stop, but for that moment I chose not to. Because someone else needed help too. Now, what’s the thing we always tell each other? It’s that you can’t take care of others if you can’t take care of yourself.
So, a weekend knocked on my ass. Nothing got done. And I wasn’t 100% healed after. Did I learn my lesson? No. Only that adjustments were the only thing that we’re actually helping me and helping my body to heal- this isn’t a paid advertisement!! I swear!
My body was ruined. I rode it hard, put it away wet. And now rather than letting it heal, I had to let it fully rebuild. Bacterial pneumonia is no joke!! It’ll lay ya flat and make you wonder about all your life choices. Again, getting adjusted has worked wonders for me. I literally came into the office with a pulse ox of 87 and left at 94. Yes, someone else was driving, so don’t worry about that safety hazard.
But here’s the thing. If you asked me, I’d tell you i do all the “right” things. This time it wasn’t enough. Literally no amount of filtered water and low toxin body care was going to save me. I’m having to do the work now. And Dr Liz and her magic hands. Truly. Let me bare witness on this one. But I’m the one eating the right foods to rebuild my body. I’m the one allowing the rest. I’m the one drinking filtered water so my body can focus on healing and not detoxing.
So, let this be a wake up call. You aren’t invincible. You aren’t better than anyone else. And you need a break. A really good real break.
So stop what you’re doing. I promise it can wait. My life has been put on hold. Not by my choice. Make it your choice, and you will have time another day to do another chore.
