This weekend, I am trying to focus on relaxing.
I say "trying" because it is actually very difficult to do. I have such a huge desire to be productive and speedy fast at everything, that sitting down just to relax seems very foreign.
However, I had a bit of a wake up call on Friday.
For as long as I can remember, I have been a very stressed, high strung kind of person. I try not to let this show, but it is what it is. And, lately, this stress has become down right painful.
My back hurts, my neck aches, and my face is so tense, it is positively painful to eat an apple. Crazy, right?
So, wanting something different, I went to a chiropractor on Friday. And I learned I was all kinds of messed up. My high stress level, compounded with my extreme caffeine habit, has now made it virtually impossible to relax my body.
But, the doctor fixed and straightened me out. And I have learned a very, very important lesson.
Relaxation is an important part of living.
Now, if only I can remember this.....and put down the coffee pot....
