LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE
By LilyLeung on May 30, 2014
That's the state I am seldom in. But I am improving. I'm reading Lissa Rankin's book, Mind Over Medicine and becoming more aware of how I am living and my un-ease. It's not all about doing the proper things like diet, exercise and genetics. There's much more.
There's our attitudes, moods and a thing call happiness that affects our health and our ability to heal ourselves. I did not know that I was living in a constant state of distress until I left the world of nursing - code Blues, stats, call bells and bedpan alley.
Now I know and it is the next morning.
I listened and heeded my body and went to bed instead of finishing this post last night. I needed sleep and knew if I stayed up, sleep might escape me. And I have slept well in the night and up early this morning. I drank my lemon water and did my qigong routines, guiding my body and mind into ease for the coming day.
I sipped my tea, thinking of how I will weave my story for the Friday Fictioneers post. Life is good. I can relax. It is okay.
