Today I say thank you to my pandemic body.
We’ve been through some serious hits to our nervous system over the last 12 months. And yet you didn’t break down. 💥⚡️💥
At times if I was you, I would have given up on me and my care-taking.
-Those early times of total lockdown where there wasn’t enough movement and I was afraid to go outside.
-The 11 months of going to bed at 3am after sitting at the computer 14 hours a day to launch a start-up business I didn’t plan for.
-The lack of appreciation.🥰
- 204 days with no physical touch of another human being.
-Not showering enough.
-Not drinking enough water.
-Not eating enough.
-Then having dinner at midnight.
-Not getting enough fresh fruit and vegetables from being afraid to go to the store at first.🥑🥕
- Feeling so much fear from ever increasing intensity of triggers from living back in the United States.
-Not getting enough sleep and over working.
-Holding my breath too much of the time as another and another racist comment came through.
-Not crying enough.
-Not screaming enough.
-And so much more.
💚 Thank you body for your patience with me in getting back on track and making time to look after you better.
You are not the same body I had a year ago.
You got thicker and lost some strength.
And I love you just the same.
Actually I love you even more than ever before.
Thank you for letting me design more purposeful #selfcare and take my power back in showing you more #selflove
At my age I know now I can never, ever let you down again.
We’re in this together for quality longevity!
Thank you for not rebelling when I kicked back in a serious lifestyle upgrade in movement therapies (Yoga, #PureBarre, cycling, walking, Pilates), sleep and nutrition.
I love you.
