I was reading this blog today and this line really struck a chord with me:
"Stress trumps all. Even when the diet and movement are right, you can be undermined by a mind that's bearing a heavy load."
Isn't that true? Every time I've had a major injury, it's been during a very stressful period in my life. I've taken to preemptively doing energy work before a stressful event because my body manifests stress so strongly physically. When I last sprained my ankle, I was a Graduate Teaching Assitant, was completing my Masters, was teaching full time, and completing the highest level of Pilates certification. So was it the movement in the ballet class that injured me? No, it was the heavy load I was carrying in my brain and in my heart.
So, how are you planning on taking care of your mind this year? How can we lessen the load for each other?
This may be my New Years Non Resolution .
