Listen to your body as well as the mind….

At Peer Support group the other day, we talked about listening to what your body tells you about pain and not wanting to make that pain worse.

Today I’m putting that into practice. Earlier in the week, I was looking forward to going out today, to travel to a football match and watch. Waking up this morning however, saw a completely different mindset.

I slept a long time, but it seems not a very good quality sleep. I feel quite tired and washed out. No enthusiasm for doing anything today. No get up and go, and though sometimes I do push myself to do things when not 100%, that is not possible today, not at all.

The TV will be on, and I’m just going to lay on the sofa and keep an eye on the sport going on up and down the country. So I’ve listened to what my body is telling me. Washed out, so stay in. Going out will make it worse. No gym today either, that’s totally out of the question.
