A Time of Recovery
To say that life has been stressful for our family in the past couple of months would be a gross understatement ! So, now that things seem to have calmed down, and Mei-Ling is doing so much better, its time for me to treat myself to some recovery time. As you age, you handle stress differently. I found myself having tension headaches, which then turned into aches and pains that apparently wished to "take up residence". Heading to the Fitness Center for a nice swim aggravated the tension in my shoulders. Working out, did the same. A nice hour long massage, resulted in the masseuse telling me, "your muscles are balls of tension". I needed to take care of this problem as it began to manifest itself in what I call, symptoms of old age !
A trip to the chiropractor resulted in the same consensuses as the masseuse. Twice a week adjustments and deep massage are helping. At home, I have been treating myself to long leisurely breakfasts on the porch, reading favorite books, and listening to music that soothes my soul. I am beginning to feel younger every day !
I haven't felt very inspired to write which is why you are not seeing many posts by me, but as I get my "groove" back, then that too will change.
