You know that awful feeling when you start to realize you are coming down with something? The tickle in your throat, the low grade fever, maybe an achy body.
We’ve all had these feelings and then some- especially with Covid.
The question is how are you taking in this information from your body? Are you desperately fighting being sick or stopping to listen to your body?
Before breast cancer, I was mostly in the former category: I really, really, really didn’t want to be sick or deal with anything negative in (or on) my body! A rash or hives?! Yikes! Get rid of it. Sore throat? Ignore it!
I was really good at ignoring my body. Until I got breast cancer….
It was then that I really decided to slow down and pay attention to what my body was conveying to me with breast cancer.
It’s not just about ignoring your body. It’s about ignoring the signs your body is trying to send you.
Conventional western medicine does not address this idea. However, eastern medicine is all about the fact that your body is a messenger showing you what is out of balance and needs your loving attention.
That’s what I learned in my breast cancer journey: I learned to finally slow down, have more fun, be more lively and listen to my body. I did so by combining eastern and western medicine.
I don’t want you to have to learn this lesson the hard way…
What’s in this for you? Stop and consider:
• How do you respond to your aches, pains and symptoms? Do you resist or ignore your body and just push through?
• Next time you have an ache, a rash, acid reflux or a pain, consider stopping and getting really present to the symptom. Close your eyes, send that part of your body love and attention. Next, check in to see what your gut/intuition tells you about the pain. This doesn’t mean not going to the doctor, but it does mean staying aware and present to your body’s wisdom and feeling in control of your health and well-being. Great brands take care of themselves in service to others in their lives.
