I Sing the Body Electric

You are the only one that knows the degree to which your body is working or not. Medicine and diagnosis is important, but using the correct language to tell the practitioners your pain level, over all health and the amount of sleep and exercise you get is the first step.

We are close to the end of the list of practices that will help you live the best life you can. The last several are more than just using a pen or pencil and come down to the core of old age and the physical husk you carry around that is falling apart.

Number 9

What ways ar you currently feeling challenged in caring for your body? How can you better nourish and nuture, strengthen or tone and cleasnse and detoxify your body?

Name one behavior you can adjust. When can you start and can you make this healthier behavior a habit?

A body in motion, a body with less pain, a body that meets your needs for activities and relationship makes what ever number of years you have attained, wear more easily on your mind. May your attitude about living  lighten and lift the corners of your lips.

My reading this last week included two novels about bodies in change…one was about a family  discovering Huntington’s Disease in the gene pool and the other about a man having locked in syndrome in a coma. Heavy reading, but lessons too about loving and enjoying a body that is working fairly well and VERY well in comparison.

Enjoy the fall days outdoors and the sun shining on the leaves.
