I really wince when I say this, but since I’ve crossed over the line of 40 I feel every injury I’ve ever had when I’m run down. I also happen to be really excited about this whole “raw food thing” and the program I’m offering as well as others I’m thinking of and my FREE 10 min. meditation that will be live by the end of the week. [you can claim your free meditation at www.enlightenedmeditations.com. There is so much information out there about raw vegan life, recipes, programs, articles, communities… I could spend all day reading about it.
Honestly, it’s all good stuff but I had a panic attack of sorts yesterday. All of all of it swirling around in my head so fast I couldn’t focus on any one thing. So, I decided to write it all down and that helped a lot. I also find that yoga helps me to focus on things one at a time – it’s really great and helpful. Sleep is another thing that is a must.
I do find that eating a clean diet of mostly vegan & raw makes my head so much more clear and I have more energy. My point is that my stress & exhaustion go way beyond that and I tend to be a little hard on myself for not getting things done or being too tired to complete a task… Worse yet when there are actual deadlines – like the holidays!!
So – let’s all remember that we are human beings. There is only 24 hrs in a day, hopefully sleeping at least 8 of them! My body is going to feel tired on a good day and my aches and pains are going to show up.
Here is a quote from Pema that I came across today and I love it. I think it speaks to the point that we are humans and to stop for a bit and notice our bodies. Maybe we can send some love to our aches and pain. Maybe we can honor our tired bodies with a hot bath (got any epson salts?)
Ahhh let’s give ourselves a break….

“It’s also helpful to realize that this body that we have, this very body that’s sitting here right now in this room, this very body that perhaps aches, and this mind that we have at this very moment, are exactly what we need to be fully human, fully awake, and fully alive.”
— Pema Chodron
