Last night, I had a hard time falling asleep and then a hard time staying asleep. Every time I woke up last night it was because I thought I was running late for work. I’m pretty sure it’s due to the thoughts of all the things I have to do this week and running out of time to do everything.
So, it only seems appropriate that today’s post be a self-care Sunday post. Clearly my subconscious is telling me that I’m stressed. To me, one of the important things about self-care is listening to your body. I see so many people pushing themselves while their bodies are saying “stop, I need a break” and thus getting sick because that’s the only way the body knows how to get some rest.
I think I’ve always been able to be in tune with my body because when I was first fed meat as a child I threw it up and my family never forced me to eat meat. Eventually I did but I think it started from back then and having my body be heard. Growing up, I have always been aware of what’s going on in my body even when my parents didn’t believe me. I still remember that one time I didn’t feel very well and I told my mom, I think I have a fever and she didn’t believe me. We ended up taking my temperature and I was right.
The moral of the story, listen to your body. I know I will be tonight when I go home from work.
I leave you with a picture of the view outside my skytrain window.
