I am resting the best I can and doing 80% less at 50% capacity. I just made that up, but that’s what life feels like right now.
I went to the chiropractor again today and really don’t like that feeling at all. I feel like I’m being broken and put back together again like Humpty Dumpty. I don’t like hearing that I have a “condition” that will need more work.
I hope the physical therapy and massage will help loosen everything up and help me to strengthen and stretch the muscles and ligaments that are so tightly wound and pulling me out of balance. I like balance.
I am letting go of expectations and I am patiently waiting for my normal to return. It feels so weird to me not to exercise and not to be doing all the chores I normally do. I am adapting and asking for help. I am accepting the break and slowing down, whether I like it or not.
One way that I can relax is by watching movies. Today I went to see Imitation Games at the theater and enjoyed eating buttery popcorn in a high-backed seat that was really comfortable. This movie was excellent and very touching. I highly recommend seeing it as it is very well done and is entertaining.
Tonight I am sitting on the couch and am going to watch some recorded shows and read some magazines. I think I might actually enjoy this!
What do you like to do to relax and slow down?
I hope you are well and have a fabulous weekend, doing what you love with loved ones.
