Self Care Sunday

Self Care Sunday.

I do want to address the physical aspect. You cannot take care of your family properly if you are unwell. You cannot function at work properly if you are unwell.

I had a clean stress test less than a year ago after presenting to the ER with chest pain and shortness of breath. Vitals, EKG, cardiac enzymes, etc. All normal, yet I was tired and growing more tired. My legs hurt when I walked, which was attributed to certain types of medication. Horrid indigestion that nothing really seemed to help.

I know better than to just brush it all off as stress, working a lot, etc. because the symptoms were just getting worse not better. What I should have done was seek out different practitioners. Get second opinions. I preach this to my patients and to my family.

Take the time to get to the root of the problems. Find practitioners that are willing to look at the whole not just the individual symptoms.

Light, Love, and Peace

Women Don’t Always Have The Same Symptoms of a Heart Attack as Men

What’s For Supper? part 1

I remember the kids just getting in from school and before they got a toe into to house. “Mom what’s for supper?”

Where to start? Deciding at this point can cause you to want to pull your hair out. Tick tock tick tock. Time quickly runs away. There are soccer games, dance lessons, a million places and directions to go. The temptation to grab fast food on the fly

So where to start?

For my house I use weekly menus. This is what I starting doing back when my children were little. Now as empty nesters it still makes life easier.

Use each of your 3 pantries to their full potential. Here is an idea of what I mean:

Dry pantry items:

  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruits
  • Pasta and rice
  • Baking supplies

Refrigerator items

  • Eggs
  • Dairy
  • Condiments
  • Fresh berries
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Chopped garlic
  • Left-overs

Freezer:

  • Made-Once Eat-Twice meals
  • Vegetables
  • Pasta
  • Fish
  • Ginger root
  • Chopped onion
  • Meats

Keeping your pantries stocked with basic meals is vital.

 

 

On This Day

On this day… 18 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning tomorrow. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.
Never forget.

More Heart Than Scars

“Chase anything long enough and you will end up catching and becoming the opposite of what you desperately sought. Therefore, obsessing for pleasure becomes processing of pain. So suffering on purpose will train you to be able to receive joy. “ -Zackary Paben
