A reminder to be kind to yourself

Reverse is not the word I would have chosen here, it is more like there are things that turn on inflammation, or turn it off. Stop being kind to yourself for a while, and the "on" switch is flipped. Anyway, I'll stop being picky and go get the meditation on that I've been ignoring for a week 😁

Well I'm doing all of the above so I must be on the right track-I do feel pretty good but I agree, maybe not reversal but hopefully not progression related to stress 👍

kdali I have a yoga instructor who I became fast friends with. Amazing human. She has made it her personal mission to help he. She does just by being a friend. I love her to death, Ok to the point. She is so awesome she sent me a voice memo meditation. It is so amazing. So much better than all the apps and CD's Maybe because I know her, so her voice is more soothing. For those of you on this side of the pond. She sounds like Roz from Frasier. I could listen to that raspy soothing voice for hours. That is why I watched the show. HA! TMI, sorry. So I think it is important to find either an app, a friend, a CD or something that the voice to you is soothing and use it, When you wonder off, which you will. Squirrel!!!! It helps bring you back. I know without it. I would be so lost!

My 2 cents for the day.(ok for now)

Thanks Rob! That's really nice of her to do that for you 😍 I use the Headspace app, I like Andy. There's a 2 week free trial if anyone is interested in that. I think there are free meditation videos on YouTube also.

kdali I use that as well. There is one called Calm that isn't bad. Also, I have been blessed lately. My wife's uncle gave me an Apple Watch. It has a breathing app. It is awesome!!!!!!!!! You can set a reminder. All it does is via vibrations walk you through breathing. I use that about 10 times a day.

Also, yes it is really nice of her!!! Like I said her and I became fast FRIENDS. Appropriate friends.

I was surprised too! I love it. Especially in emergencies. Like sudden panic attacks.

I need to get something like that for my oldest daughter, rlh1974 she calls me when she has her severe panic attacks. No matter the time😐 She can't even talk at that point, all I can is ask if everyone is ok. Get an uh huh and for the next 20minutes or so talk her down.💕

Jesmcd2 I am so sorry that you have to live on stress! That is an unlike button! I think your Dr needs to prescribe you a vacation! Someplace breezy and sunny and no internet! And just the right temp!

kdali as I say, a lot of chapters in my book, I look back and think this really is no different, just the stakes are higher now I think when it comes to parents. So makes the stress levels higher.😐😆

I was meditating regularly at the time I posted this 😵 and am getting back to that; my goal is 30 minutes per day. I don't do yoga, as they recommend in the article, I just fall over and have a good laugh about it.

I try to stick to fresh and veg and I regularly make raspberry zinger tea. I have amla (indian gooseberry) powder to add to cold drinks, and sometimes I buy orange juice that has turmeric already in it. Dr Gregor has a lot of videos on research of food and inflammation, if you are interested in where I get my crazy habits, at nutritionfacts.org.
