Your Physical Life

Before I became seriously ill over a decade ago, I was the poster child for neglecting my body’s physical needs: nutrition, regular exercise, rest and relaxation, sunshine, vitamin and mineral supplements – you get the idea. I was too busy and there were more pressing priorities. When my health completely fell apart, I slowly realized that years of physical neglect had left my being with gaping holes. During my years of neglect, I had felt aches and pains, tiredness, emotional ups and downs, and sluggish thinking, but I didn’t know that this was my body crying out for attention.

 

This is why I am a huge advocate for physically caring for ourselves before major symptoms occur, because once they occur, you may never recover fully. Equally important is the fact that we want to flourish during our time on this planet, not merely survive.

 

And for those who are already struggling with physical symptoms like I was, restoring our physical health must be a top priority.
