This week I’ve been SO poorly and it actually got me thinking about how much we take our health for granted.
*DEEP THOUGHTS ALERT* But seriously, we get on with our day to day lives and march through life full speed ahead, not really taking any time out, except for those two week holidays in summer.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I can’t deal with going home after work and ‘chilling’ What does this even mean?!
I’d been going to the gym at least five times a week, not getting home till late, eating late and weird, then all of a sudden my body gave this huge cry for help!
I won’t go into the ins and outs, we don’t all need to read about the dramas of Victoria Gill! Ha! But it was definitely time for some time out and no exercise for at least two weeks.
ERM. This was not okay. But it was only not okay because I was in this habit of work, gym, eat, sleep, work, eat, gym, sleep. I’m a busy person, and I enjoy being on the go all the time, I hate having nothing to do, it drives me mad. However, thinking about it, I actually think it’s good for our bodies to break this cycle every now and then and have two weeks off to CHILL.
I will admit that going home straight from work and having the whole evening to myself was a nightmare at first, I didn’t know what to do with myself and found it so boring. But I think it just takes some time to readjust; there’s actually more to do than you think and it does give your body that time it obviously needs to recharge.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m feeling a little better so will probably be back at the gym next week, ‘easing’ myself back into it!
Feels like this blog is a bit of a diary entry, but having the time off to think had me thinking about how manic life can be and how important it is to look out for number one, not matter what the circumstances are.
My mum always says ‘If you haven’t got your health, you haven’t got anything’. She’s kinda right.
