Grateful for my Health

Incase you missed my last gratitude post, I promised to share something that I am grateful for each week until Thanksgiving and this week it’s my health.

For the past week or more I haven’t quite been feeling %100, I tweaked my neck somehow and my nerves were negatively affected. My arm was going numb and the pain traveled from the temple of my head all the way down to my shoulder blade. I was so scared that something more serious might be wrong with me that I was having anxiety attacks, sleeping horribly and barely eating.

After a massage and two visits to the chiropractor I’m feeling a LOT better! I also realized that I felt better when I found a project to keep me busy or when I got out of the house and did something productive. It’s amazing how strongly your brain can affect the way that your body actually feels and it can be hard to fight those feelings of fear and anxiety but I always tried to remind myself that I will feel normal again soon.

It sometimes takes a little pain or sickness to remind you that you need to really take care of yourself and appreciate your health. So don’t forget to take good care of yourself and feel free to share what you’re grateful for this week!

  1. I’m so happy you are feeling better and that you took active steps to get you out of the rut you were in. Massages always help and I’m glad you went to the chiropractor! I love you!
