This may not be the blog post you would expect.
My journey, perhaps like yours, has been about more than refining the food and supplements I take to support my immune system.
My journey has been one of discovery. I’ve come to see how out of balance I have been, how much I need a rest and reset. This rude awakening has been a long time coming.
I initially thought this lockdown would be a great opportunity to tackle tasks both undone and new and to revisit personal agendas that I’d long set aside for what I perceived to be other, more important, undertakings.
My internal voice berated me for a lack of forward motion. In my own inner turmoil, I have lashed out at the world, including my friends and colleagues.
It is only when my inner voice started speaking in kindness to me that I began to realize how long it has been since I stopped to sit in one place. To give myself a time out.
Yes, I am still tending to work, but coming at it from a more realistic place.
And then the most amazing thing happened. As I have been willing to share my conundrum with friends and colleagues, many have responded in kind. Thank you so much for speaking up. I thought I was the only one.
I have also heard from a number of practitioners who have noticed a change in the supplements needed by their clients. Now that we are staying at home in greater numbers, practitioners are seeing better health with less stress.
I counsel my clients all the time to rest and take care of themselves. Now I am having to take my own medicine.
May you be gentle with yourselves,
