Being sick more than I’ve been healthy in the past 2 months has taken a toll on me. I’m usually a-sick-4-days-then-get-over-it-and-on-with-it kind of person. A 7-day virus leading to bronchitis doesn’t allow for “my way”. This virus has demanded a long, quiet pause from me.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not dying, quitting blogging or anything like that. But since I haven’t been able to make a new recipe to share with you, I thought I would talk about taking care of yourself and show you some of the places I think I can do better.
I’m sure I ignored one of the first times I was sick in February because I was busy trying to catch up with my life and business. There’s always more work, chores, ideas, and illnesses in loved-ones. I think 2015 is trying really hard to teach me to slow down.
It’s also proving to me that some things really can be put off until later. That may not be a bonus for me – I tend to be a ‘busy procrastinator’. When it was exam time in college my whole house would be sparkling clean, and now it’s tax time that usually gets my starting my spring chores.
None of this tips are meant to be absolutes. Just like my recipes, you don’t have to do them if it’s not a fit for you, or simply adjust them until they are.
