Sick Body, Healthy Mind



There is something about a well timed sickness that really gets my psyched. The timing could not be better for me personally, the beginning of the new year. I know this sounds weird but, it really is all I could have asked for. There are a plethora of reasons why I wanted to catch this cold, GOTCHA COLD! The sickness itself is a reminder to take a step back, analyze, and begin the process of truly taking care of yourself.

When my body breaks down, I stop everything I do bad to it, and focus on resuscitating it. This, in a combination with a new attitude, starts me on the road to helping my body with the proper care. Less food, more water, more vitamins, and substantial amount of time with guiltless rest. I have a tendency to be a wee bit lazy, but I beat myself up about it, which, does not rest my soul. Knowing I am not physically strong enough to do things, eases my mind quite a bit.

I also am vice intensive most of the time, this is not good because, in the reality of my life, moderation on every level is key. I like to do what I like to do, and when I find that thing, I am doing it, good or bad. When I am congested I hate smoking, which normally I love. I really don't have a negative opinion about smoking but anything you do everyday is not good, unless it is working out, sex or gaming, but really, you need to rest your body, your penis or vagina, and your eyes, so ultimately even the greatest things are not good all the time. So, I take the first half of that sentence back. I would say writing everyday is the only thing good everyday, but, I like many, have suffered burnout and writers block from constant pondering of what to put down next.

I really think you can have a sick body and healthy mind, and that's where I am at right now. On track and ready to go. Hopefully when my body heals my mind will not get sick, because that is what usually happens. I try to remember the past but not let it cause automatic assumptions in my thinking, because the auto assump would be, my mind will get sick again shortly after the return of my body. I never go into anything with the thought that I may fail, even if I have a million times before. You just never know if this is going to be the time it sticks, and if you feel like you don't have a chance, let me tell you something, you don't have a chance. Let's all hope new habits stick.
