  1. Stress is not your friend…

    November 20, 2011 by Heather

    So my life is a bit crazy.  My brain and time is scattered all over the place, as you can probably tell since my last entry was in October!  I’m still dealing with some health issues too so that doesn’t help.  But I digress….

    I have made it ONE of my goals for 2012 to get a handle on my stress level.  I went to acupuncture a couple weeks back and was having a consultation with my herbalist.  She was reading my pulse.  Not sure if that is the proper terminology but it is something they do in Chinese medicine.  I’m not sure about the specifics but all I know is she took one look at me and said “your stress level is not serving your health.”  And I knew this….  I have known this.  It just took someone smacking me upside the head with it to make me really take notice.

    So I’m in the process of organizing me life.  I truly believe that the state of my stress level contributed to my getting ill in September and my inability to get well again.  I have started to take time to meditate daily.  Even if it is only 15 minutes.  It seems to be helping.  Hoping to reorganize so that I’m not running around like a chicken with my head cut off all the time.  Because, you know what, I forget to breath!  And the body does need oxygen you know! 🙂

    And yes blogging WILL be in the reorganization!

    Be well and try to stress less!!!  Stress really does not serve us.

  2. I really don’t have it all together…

    June 29, 2011 by Heather

    So I have been a bit nuts since I returned from Summit.  I like to use the word spaztastic!  Let me just say that I was nuts BEFORE I left for Summit so this is not an improvement!  I returned with a bunch of work to catch up on and my head spinning from all the new stuff I learned and wanted to implement.  At the same time, I am trying to stay as stress free (fat chance huh!?) as possible because I know that doesn’t help the fibromyalgia.  Have I mentioned I am Type A????  Ya….so…..  But, alas, I am only one person and I need to learn how to find balance in my life.

    I am quickly learning that I suck at finding balance in my life!  I think I’d be ok if I could just have a few more hours in the day.  But since I can’t rearrange that setup, I better learn how to find the balance…right?   I am a leader, I’m supposed to lead.  How can I tell people it’s important to have balance in their lives if I can’t find it in my own? 

    So this is what I’m trying to work on in this moment.  I always say my body is a work in progress.  And so, I suppose, is this thing called balance.  Perhaps I should have taken that time management training at Summit.  Oh wait…I was at the Social Media training.  This was the training that really set my wheels spinning and I wanted to implement everything I learned.  Ironic….
