So I am back here after a week of sickness. I have learned a lot from being sick this time. Firstly I have learnt to listen to my body and deal with niggly signs of sickness before they become a full assault on my body. Perhaps if I had seen the doctor at the first sign of a urine infection I wouldn’t have ended up with a severe infection there and a respiratory infection to boot.
Secondly I realise that my diet needs a serious overhaul. Whilst I am not quite ready to give up everything I enjoy, there is certainly room for more fruit and vegetables, fish and proper breakfast and lunch. And less of the bad stuff – refined sugars, caffeine and wine.
Finally I shall listen to people that advise having regular body MOTs. I am always borderline anaemic so I would like this checked out as well as Vitamin D levels.
So those are the physical lessons but there are also other issues to look at. I just need to be kinder to myself – worry less, focus on the important things (actually get started on one of my many business ideas and follow through with it and be less of a gemini) and relax a little more and enjoy this beautiful city (example of this amazing place above). I actually have very little stress in my life yet often I feel overwhelmed.
So being sick has been the turning point – a new healthy relaxed me is my new goal!
