Week seven. List the things that make me feel healthy: mind, body and soul.
Wow. That’s a small list I’ve got there. And that concerns me a little. I’ve never been that good at looking after myself, not in the pampering type of way.
I used to find it incredibly difficult to slow down. I felt guilty when I picked up a book in the afternoon. I was annoyed if I slept in at the weekend (there’s so much to do). I used to see massages as treats, when I should have seen them as a necessity to heal and relax.
It is a little easier nowadays.
Partly because I have no choice. My batteries don’t last as long as they used to. After a day at work, I need to slow right down. I have to have a couple of evenings at home during the week, and at least a full day at the weekend.
Life has changed. I have changed.
I’m not used to the new me, to this me I am at the moment.
I am better at doing things which are good for me.
But I also know I’m not there yet.
