Day 3 of my cold. .
Day 3 of feeling a little frustrated with my compromised immune system but trying to accept that other things in my body would be worse without the help of the immune suppressing drugs.
Day 208 of me being gentle with myself and taking care of my body and doing the best I can.
Only day 208? Maybe its been a few days more, maybe a few days less but 208 days since my Crohn's diagnosis confirmation and realising that my health is my responsibility. .
I love my body and all the things it has allowed me to do. All the places I have travelled do, the raves I have danced at, the fitness events, the courses, workshops I have attended, the connection with others, love, hugs, smiles shared.
Our bodies are our temples and I know how much I have taken mine for granted over the years... the abuse I have put it through with the partying, junk food, food deprivation, love deprivation, sleep deprivation, overtraining... .
There have been signals over the years when my body has cried out for me to listen, eat better, slow down and I didn't always pay that much attention or I would for a while then slip back to old ways...
This time, for the last 208 days I have listened closely. I have apologised to my body. I have been nourishing it with the best nutrition & hysration I can, with sleep - so much more sleep, with much more gentle exercise, meditation (or focused time out might be a better way to put it), breathing, and listening with love and respect. .
We need to take responsibility for our beautiful bodies and show them some love. It is what I teach in my 90 day Love Your Body programme. The VIP wait list for the next intake is now open.
