I recently learned another lesson. To listen to both my body and my mind. When they say “Stop we need a brake!”, I should slow down and give them both some rest. In the last months I rarely did that. After my surgery I even started working sooner than I should have. Not good but sometimes when we have so many obligations, we forget about ourselves.
Of course my body and I have always been together so we know each other already for a long time and it`s not the first time this happens, but I think I`ve continuously asked too much from my body. Not only my mind and body learned something new about me, but also all the lovely people around me that were angry with me, or my son who told me he won`t be talking me with me for one day if I don`t listen and get some rest. They learned that I`m very stubborn and l kept having clashes on this topic until they were exhausted.
I decided to take the brake my body needed. And where could be the best place to give my body some rest and relax? Where my roots are! I had a wonderful time and I`m back now in Europe but all I can think of is the time of relaxation over there. I learned my lesson and I realized that overworking and not resting is also a part an unhealthy life, but I got the best therapy ever! My roots opened my eyes and I`ll hold on to that for sure.
So, when your body needs a brake, give it to him! There are many ways to do that. You just have to find the balance.
