Listen to the body Week 17HJ


I am travelling this week. I love travelling…but I had a very challenging week. I felt like everything was turning against me. In fact, I should have listened to the body: it was yelling at me, but I wasn’t listening. So, in the end, of course, I had to stop and admit that I was sick. I kept going for a while, but the evidence was clear, I needed to rest. Now, I feel a bit better, but the good lesson was: ”stop playing wonder woman”. Sometimes, I really feel so invincible, but that’s just not reality.  I should know that as a yoga practitioner, I should have learnt to respect my body. There still is this part of me that does not want to give up at any cost. This is my lesson for now. I will treasure it. I will stop more easily, if I would need a break. It looks simple, but it is not, at least for me..

Have a great week everyone and thank you for stopping by:)

  1. Thanks for sharing your struggle to stop struggling. Sometimes we need to be as kind to ourselves as we would be to others.

  2. What am I pretending not to know? 😉 I too use to abuse my body in sickness…okay, I still do…but not as much…Hmmmm in food intake…hmmmm…okay, enough, lol. A friend of mine asked; what’s the difference between a car and you when either run out of gas? …the car stops running! Awareness….perspective! Isn’t it so hard that we know what we are supposed to do…but don’t? Thank you for sharing.

  4. Yeah, keeping balance is the key and you always have signs when something is not right. I hope that you are ok now. Just keep resting if neccessary.
