It’s Wise Wednesday!
Today’s Motivational Minute is… Listen to your Body — Pay Attention to the signs!
Last night I noticed my throat starting to get a little scratchy and my chest was starting to feel sore. I had been fine earlier in the day but towards the end of the day, I was feeling the after-effects of teaching in a COLD FREEZING classroom for the past two days and being out in the midst of summer, spring, winter and fall – ALL IN ONE DAY. Yes, it was 37 degrees in the morning, about 70 degrees in the afternoon and then back to about 50 degrees in the evening. During the day, it colder in the classroom than it was outside. In the midst of that I was going about my business and my day. NOT paying attention to the outward signs.
However, I do listen to my body and I know the inward signs of when I feel a cold trying to latch onto me and that was the feeling I felt last night. Guess what??? I was right! I woke up this morning groggy, with a slight cough and a slight headache. Somehow in the hustle and bustle of the last few days I had not been paying attention or remembered that when I’m moving around a lot, I tend to get sick if I’m not careful.
What about you? Are there times in your life where you haven’t listened to your body. When you didn’t rest like your body was tell you and you got sick or run down. Most times than not, your body will speak very loudly and very clearly and tell you what it needs, you just have to be paying attention to the signs. Use wisdom, don’t run yourself so ragged that you are now down and out for days or weeks at a time because you didn’t listen to your body nor did you pay attention to the signs.
YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me, do you listen to your body? Do you pay attention to the signs it and your environment gives you? When was the last time you didn’t listen to your body nor pay attention to the signs? What happened? How long did it take you to recover?
Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…
